"Four Stars ... a dream ticket jazz meeting between a cutting edge European legend and an equally honed triumvirate of pioneering New York based youth. There are echoes of the 1960s Miles acoustic quintet ...very seductive listening ..." - The Guardian Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko introduces an exciting new quartet on this album full of strong themes, playing and improvisational daring, inspired by Polish poet, essayist and Nobel Laureate Wisława Symborska who died in 2012. The album was recorded in New York City, where Stanko has become a familiar presence in the last decade as his base for writing music, soaking up the city’s art scene and monitoring innovative developments in music. At 70, Stanko has lost none of his willingness to take aboard new ideas, while also keeping the old ideas firmly in view. "Originally, I wanted just to enjoy the city of New York, where jazz has been so important and which continues to be the most important jazz city in the world. The city where Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington made great music and where much great jazz history was made ... In New York I found three fantastic cats." - Tomasz Stanko

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!
