Billboard 200 - #12, 1964 “Jimmy Smith’s The Cat cuts through grease like fresh battery acid.” - DJ Al Collins (KSFO San Francisco) Recorded over two days at Rudi Van Gelder’s Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on two, separate, late April days in 1964, The Cat simply buzzes with excitement from the opening bars of Lalo Schifrin’s ‘Theme From ‘Joy House’’ and doesn’t let up until the moody, and sheer sexiness, of ‘Blues In The Night.’ If you know someone who says they don’t get Jimmy Smith, just play them The Cat. Released on 14 September 1964, it is consummate Hammond B3 playing with the added vibrancy of Lalo Schifrin’s arrangements for big band. ‘Basin Street Blues’ eschews 1960s’ sophistication, while the appropriately super cool ‘Delon’s Blues’ is dedicated to the French actor Alain Delon, who Smith had befriended while on tour in Europe in 1963.

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!
