Grammy Award - Best Contemporary Instrumental Album, 2015

"Four Stars ... a refined and cohesive orchestral suite rather than a collection of quirky groove vehicles ... a bigger and more cinematic soundscape without abandoning Snarky trademarks such as catchy soul-jazz horn hooks, loose improv and dance floor funk."
- The Guardian

Sylva is the ninth album overall and the major label debut from Brooklyn-based instrumental fusion band Snarky Puppy. Formed in Texas in 2004 and led by Grammy-winning bassist, composer and producer Michael League, the band features a collective of nearly 40 musicians, referred to as "The Fam" on their recordings and tours. On this Grammy nominated album, inspired by forests around the world, Snarky Puppy is accompanied by the Metropole Orchestra from Holland, with as many as 63 performers playing together live at the same time in the same studio.

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!
