"The marvel always with listening to Cline is how well the highly textured barrage works as music, not just, or even primarily, on an intellectual level, conjuring a head-bopping forward momentum that trains the pulse to keep swinging even through the strangest passages of electronic rattling."
- All About Jazz

Macroscope from the adventurous trio the Nels Cline Singers provides a measure of the long-running group’s staggering range. Captivating and continually surprising, the album finds the instrumental trio veering off in one direction only to suddenly be overwhelmed by another drastic stylistic shift, often within the space of a single tune. Cline even adds his vocals to the mix on two tracks, drawing inspiration from Brazilian singer-songwriters on Respira and Macroscopic.

"The title speaks to the idea of the mutt within ... the fact that I’m not in any one genre and never have been. I was a rock and roll kid, but after hearing Coltrane and Miles and Weather Report, then Indian music and Nigerian pop and that sort of thing, there was no turning back. From that point on, the idea of purism just was not possible."
- Nels Cline

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!
