With 53, the 15th album in a recording career that has now spanned 25 years since his stunning self-titled debut on Blue Note in 1994, the pianist and composer Jacky Terrasson presents a magnificent collection of original pieces in the form of an intimate confession, brought to life by a varied cast of trio mates, and performed at a level of mastery that places Terrasson among of the greatest artists in Jazz. 53 is an album unlike any other in his acclaimed and prolific career. It is a work signaling a turning point in his life in which the pianist dares to venture into the intimacy of his own life story, while throwing himself resolutely into the unknown with new collaborations and new artistic gambles. The result is a collection of 16 tracks that are magnified by precise arrangements. Terrasson takes his listeners on a tour of his musical aesthetics: varying moods, styles, rhythms and references which create a kaleidoscopic universe of sounds. Included are tributes to the pantheon of great masters: notably Keith Jarrett with “Kiss Jannett for Me,” and Ahmad Jamal with the compelling opening theme “The Call,” which sets a high bar for the album from which it never comes down. To bring to life this remarkably rich and diverse material, Terrasson brought on a range of able collaborators to explore the particular character of each theme through its colors and subtle harmonic textures. After years of experimenting in the studio with varied ensembles Terrasson was intent on creating an intimate balance on 53 and decided to return to the canonical format of a piano-bass-drums trio. Yes – the trio – Terrasson’s preferred mode of musical expression since his debut album introduced the young phenom alongside bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer Leon Parker. “The trio is really the ideal formula for me, the one where I feel most free and which I believe allows the richest potential in creativity between individual expression and collective interaction. What I also like is the perfect blend of tone and material: the wood and the skin of the drums, the bass string of the double bass, the ivory of the keyboard… All these materials have a special color and feel which together form a sort of sensuality that I find very stimulating!” - Jacky Terrasson

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!
