"... a naked declaration of contentment and good-naturedness that’s increasingly rare in these troubled times ... it’s bright and soothing and hard not to like ... well-crafted, immaculately performed and arranged crowd pleasers." - JazzTimes.com Living My Dream from South African singer-songwriter and guitarist Jonathan Butler is a bountiful feast of contemporary jazz instrumentals and soul-mined R&B vocal cuts, all original songs he produced and tracked live in the House of Blues studio in Los Angeles. Like Butler’s best material from a diverse, award-winning and chart-topping career that has spanned R&B, jazz, pop and gospel, Living My Dream provides an honest and revealing soulfully-inspired songbook probing the artist’s life and loves: God, family and his homeland. The album includes a reprise of the instrumental tune African Breeze, originally composed by Butler for the 1985 film The Jewel of the Nile starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito. "It took years for me to be able to use the term ‘living my dream.’ I had to grow in my confidence and comfort and security first. It’s one of those albums that I really didn’t think I had in me. I had been struggling, going through this emotional period. Once I got my wind and got back to a place of focus, it turned out to be the best experience for me. It’s a classic Jonathan Butler album." - Jonathan Butler

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!
