"... an amazing recording ... you can hear the trumpeter coming to grips with the diverse aesthetics surrounding him. The title track is an interesting and unique composition played with incredible skill and drama. It's like a meeting between the avant-garde and calypso. Free jazzers take note how accurately these ensemble lines are played."
- All About Jazz

Recorded and released in 1964, Breaking Point from Freddie Hubbard is considered one of the essential jazz albums of the era. Joined on the front line by James Spaulding on alto saxophone and flute, Hubbard's rhythm section is equally impressive: Ronnie Mathews on piano, bassist Eddie Khan and drummer Joe Chambers, who also contributes one song to this set of Hubbard originals.

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!
