Gentleman offers a set of wry yet hopeful songs about love, loss and elegant masculinity.

What does it mean to be a gentleman in this day and age? Vocalist, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers found himself confronting that question from a variety of angles as he was preparing for his latest album. On a personal level, he was watching his daughter leave home for college, beginning a new chapter in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp. Back at home, Stigers was reinventing his own life with a new romance and marriage.

On a grander scale, Stigers found himself, like so many others, enraged by the lack of role models in public life. From the divisive and openly corrupt dealings of politicians to the exposed underbelly of the entertainment industry, it became increasingly difficult to find an example of manhood worth looking up to.

Stigers’ new album, Gentleman, thus offers a wry yet elegant reassessment of the modern male. The album arrives with a spring bouquet of heartfelt songs that offer a unique view of love and loss from the perspective of a hopeless romantic who’s been through the gamut of emotion and lived to tell the tale. At times sardonic, not immune to drowning his sorrows in one (or two) too many, Stigers nonetheless remains a true gentleman, even when he comes bearing more thorns than roses.

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!
