Innovative pianist and organist Milt Buckner originated the "locked hands" technique which lends this album its title. His method of playing has been emulated by his and future generations, from George Shearing to Red Garland to Oscar Peterson and beyond. Locked Hands, the second of the trio albums Buckner recorded for German label MPS, was released in 1968 and showcases the keyboardist playing four pieces on piano and four on organ. His signature "locked hands" approach is most apparent on the opening song Glady’s Dance, with piano, bass and drums trading fours and eights on the way back to the theme. This album features Buckner with bassist Jimmy Woode, a Duke Ellington alumnus, as well as British drummer Kenny Clare, who played with Aretha Franklin and Tony Bennett.

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!
