"... an exclamatory free jazz piece for big band that flew in the face of the nihilism pervading mid-century European art."
- JazzTimes.com

Global Unity, a landmark free jazz album from 1966, is an insight into what was going on in the European free jazz scene at the height of the movement. A who’s who of German and European free jazz players join the orchestra leader, composer-pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach, whose compositions revolve around loosely organized structures, allowing maximal freedom in conjunction with the musicians’ role as instantaneous composers. The music reflects influences from earlier groundbreaking albums from Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane as well as contemporary European classical music.

"The cosmic eye at the central point and on the periphery of the sphere can see all the structures from every angle at the same time. From the divine indifference of the sphere emerge the solos with all the impulse of revolt. The lines they trace are the images of life."
- Alexander von Schlippenbach

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!
