Keepin’ A Style Alive is the debut album from German ensemble the Jan Prax Quartet, four musicians who passionately and playfully combine traditional and progressive elements of jazz in order to create a unique expression. Inspired by the timeless spirit of American jazz legends from John Coltrane to modern mainstream heroes like Joshua Redman, the original tunes on this recording present a powerful commitment to the music of former times. The result is pulsating, grooving, energetic music with a modern and individual style that shows what living jazz tradition means to a young musician like Prax.

"The tradition of jazz and its history of development are very important to me. I admire the expressiveness of the old masters: the sound, the groove and the swing that they impart. That music is an important source of inspiration for my musical ideas and it adds depth to how I play."
- Jan Prax

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
