The newest installment in the ongoing Jazz Dispensary series features a mind-expanding collection of rare and funky tracks from the ’60s and ’70s, culled from the Prestige Records catalog by guest curator Doyle Davis, co-owner of Grimey’s Records in Nashville, TN. Jazz Dispensary: The Dank D-Funk Blend offers the highest-quality experience for the funk fan, with hard-driving grooves like the upbeat “Message From the Meters” by Funk, Inc., and “Sing a Simple Song” by Charles Earland. Other highlights include a scorching cover of Carole King’s “I Feel the Earth Move” from Boogaloo Joe Jones and the chilled-out “Song for My Father” by organist Richard “Groove” Holmes. With audio remastered from the original analog sources, this digital release follows a limited 3000-copy vinyl run released for Record Store Day 2019. Jazz Dispensary originated in 2016 with the release of Cosmic Stash—a limited-edition box set for Record Store Day, comprised of four distinct musical strains—“Soul Diesel,” “Purple Funk,” “OG Kush” and “Astral Travelin’.” The sought-after collection offered a heightened musical experience and featured some of the most iconic and hard-to-find drum breaks, legendary samples and a who’s who of players.

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!
