"... A Rise In The Road is a lift, an elevation of a band’s game, a move forward. This suggests that they can still make Happy Jazz that leaps over the objections of non-jazz fans and also has integrity. Keep on buzzin’, YJ’s. You clearly know what you are doing."
- PopMatters.com

"... (sounds) every bit a Yellowjackets offering and a fine one at that ... melodically seductive throughout ... a worthy addition to the band's discography ... the trademark Yellowjackets sound remains firmly intact ... there are clearly plenty more laps of the planet left in the tank."
- All About Jazz

A Rise In The Road is indeed an appropriate title for a time-honoured jazz ensemble that has never been fearful of facing newer musical horizons and myriad challenges of life itself. Throughout the group's storied 32-year history, the Yellowjackets have undergone numerous lineup changes, never failing to rise to the inevitable challenges of adjustment, with a professionalism that has resulted in 17 Grammy nominations (and two wins), countless sold-out tours and worldwide critical acclaim. This album marks the debut of new bassist Felix Pastorius, replacing original member bassist Jimmy Haslip. Pastorius, whose last name is widely familiar to jazz aficionados, steps in to contribute his talents to the group’s continuing sonic ventures. A Rise In The Road burnishes the group’s sterling reputation for high quality tonal explorations and ensemble execution.

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!
