"Four Stars ... the melodic disposition that is so often at the heart of everything Jarrett does remains a constant here and Russell Davies' performance is both confident and assured ... (a) brief yet superb recital ..." - All About Jazz Grammy-winning American pianist Dennis Russell Davies pays tribute to Keith Jarrett with this 1977 release, spotlighting the entire album-length work Ritual, composed by Jarrett (who does not appear on this album). "... although I could never, in improvisation, begin to assume (Jarrett's) qualities as a creative force, Ritual is a vehicle through which I can bring his spirit to the listener. Those who know Keith will hear him in this music: it couldn't have been written by anyone else." - Dennis Russell Davies

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!
