"The diversity of alluring sonorities is extraordinary. It is hard to think of a recent jazz recording prettier than Travel Guide. Pretty is not the same as soft." - JazzTimes.com "A guitar fan's delight, but also a warmly inviting collection of song-shaped pieces for three very different practitioners ... these three phrase in their own ways and Muthspiel's electric sound contrasts with the acoustic instruments of his partners throughout. - The Guardian An international summit meeting of guitarists, Travel Guide brings together American Ralph Towner, Austrian Wolfgang Muthspiel and Kazakhstan-born, Australia-raised Slava Grigoryan. The three musicians first worked together in 2005, initially for concerts in Australia and have since toured widely. What all three guitarists share is a strong feeling for structure, a sense for lyrical improvisation and a feeling for space, harnessing instrumental technique to very graceful musical ends. Repertoire features five compositions by Towner and five by Muthspiel.

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!
