"... celebrates not only the virtuoso pioneer of American swing music but captures the vibrant joy of a simple unadorned melody played with feeling and conviction."
- CriticalJazz.com

"... Bliss is capable of swinging mightily and adapting his formidable technique to the task at hand. Good music is timeless, especially when played with such enthusiasm and flair."
- JazzTimes.com

Recreating the exciting sound of swing from the 1930s and 1940s, renowned classical clarinetist Julian Bliss leads his sextet through some of the great tunes of the swing era, faithful to the authentic feel but with a modern twist and dynamic virtuosity. Bliss says he became enamored with the performances of Benny Goodman at the age of seven and in 2010 formed a group to perform Goodman’s music.

"We spent months listening to every version of each tune we could find and putting together our own versions while still being mindful of the light and fun feel Goodman captured all those years ago."
- Julian Bliss

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!
