"... a solid and enduring album ... Shorter's virile playing aside, the album is worthwhile for the presence of drum prodigy Williams ..." - All About Jazz "Four Stars ... sets a lovely, exotic modal mood that finds Shorter and the others free to strut their most lyrical stuff through a series of outstanding solos ... the title track is a playful, soaring delight ... sound is focused and solid, with excellent weight and tonal balance, fine air and separation between players, tuneful bass and rollicking dynamic life." - The Absolute Sound Wayne Shorter and this excellent sextet recorded The Soothsayer in 1965 but it was not released until 1979, appropriate considering Shorter has always been called an artist ahead of his time. Shorter is part of a three horn front line on this album, joined by Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and James Spaulding on alto sax, who both provide some stunning solos. The rhythm section consists of McCoy Tyner on piano, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Tony Williams.

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!
