Verve Records has released Love Letter, the final album by tenor saxophone master Jimmy Heath. It was completed a month before his death on 19 January and crowns his remarkable 76-year career. Love Letter, Heath’s first all-ballads album, is described by the label as a “parting masterpiece.” The album combines original material with the great jazz man’s interpretations of several seminal ballads, including songs written by Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie and Kenny Dorham. Love Letter was recorded in New York in the 48 hours before Heath turned 93 and a month later in Atlanta. The stellar cast of colleagues and friends on the set includes NEA Jazz Master pianist Kenny Barron, poll-winning guitarist Russell Malone, vibraphone veteran Monte Croft, in-demand New York bassist David Wong and drummer Lewis Nash. There are also tracks featuring vocal greats Gregory Porter and Cécile McLorin Salvant as well as revered trumpeter Wynton Marsalis.

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!
