"The music is frankly experimental even by the standards of the time, but holds up surprisingly well ... Mellé is an intriguing soloist on baritone and tenor (reminiscent of early Giuffre), but it is the arranging that makes the music special."
- JazzTimes.com

An album of firsts: believed to be the very first professional recordings ever made by legendary jazz producer Rudy Van Gelder in his living room studio, these debut sessions from saxophonist Gil Mellé were recorded in March 1952 and January 1953 and released on Blue Note, making Mellé the label's first white artist. Among the musicians backing Mellé on these songs are Eddie Bert on trombone, guitarist Tal Farlow, bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Max Roach.

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!
