"... another album of spectacular duets ..." - Rolling Stone Jazz Record Guide "Five Stars ... (a) long overdue release ... the composed music is wonderful ... but it's the free improvisations that reveal just how much Towner and Abercrombie's shared language and innate chemistry had evolved ... remains some of the finest, most intuitive and intimately inspired dual-guitar music in the history of jazz." - All About Jazz Guitarists Ralph Towner and John Abercrombie team up on this 1981 recording, their second collaboration, with Abercrombie predominately sticking to electric instruments while Towner shows his virtuosity on acoustic 12-string and classical guitar. All the material is original, mostly composed by the two guitarists together along with some individually-written songs.

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!
