Grammy Award - Best Jazz Instrumental Album, 2015 Grammy nomination - Best Improvised Jazz Solo, 2015 - Past Present "... a welcome reunion of his quartet of the early-to-mid 1990s, an elastic, swinging group ..." - The New York Times Grammy-nominated guitarist and bandleader John Scofield updates his early 1990s quartet of Joe Lovano, Bill Stewart and Larry Grenadier (who steps in for Marc Johnson and the late Dennis Irwin) on the aptly-titled Past Present, which Scofield calls "futuristic blues." One of his most personal albums, with a number of songs written during the illness and death of his son Evan in 2013, Scofield and Lovano craft unison melodies before the two separate then intertwine in invigorating improvisations. "Much of this music was composed during the short period when Evan and his wife were living with us as he was undergoing treatment. He was a constant in my mind. It was a bittersweet, poignant time to say the least. Is Evan only in the past because he’s gone? Not at all. He’s always quite present with me." - John Scofield

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!
