"More jazz records should be like Sophisticated Lady Quartet: relaxed yet focused, tradition-based yet modern, elegant yet conveying a sure sense of swing. The recording is so pure that you almost feel as if you’re eavesdropping on four musicians who seem completely in their element while performing ..." - The Absolute Sound This release combines the two volumes of Simpler Times previously released in 2013 by the Sophisticated Lady Jazz Quartet; their homage to the great tradition of American jazz. With most of their repertoire written by members of the quartet, Simpler Times celebrates these original tunes, especially those by bassist Gary Wicks. Unlike most contemporary jazz recordings, which are carefully and surgically perfected in post production, Simpler Times stays true to its title and sounds fresh and raw. These tracks, some of which are first takes, were recorded live to tape without any editing or digital magic.

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!
