"... Abercrombie (constructs) a mesmerizing fire in this tribute to the (mostly) ’60s jazz that shaped Abercrombie’s musical tastes. Produced in typical crystalline ECM fashion ... good concept, flawless execution." - JazzTimes.com "The musicians here are masters at this sort of thing (and many other things too), so it's a riveting album. Even when they coast, swish and twirl along the slightest thread, you're carried along (or I was anyway) ... the players possess such improvisational prowess and strike such a sensitive balance as a group, they pull it off. It's a lovely album ... with a keen balance that matches the musicians." - Stereophile On this album, John Abercrombie pays tribute to his formative influences, recordings and musicians that shaped his early listening and his future directions. The period addressed is the 1960s, with specific reference to key albums by Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane and Bill Evans. Abercrombie revisits some classics of the era on Within A Song which essentially serves as a modern jazz primer, but it’s also much more. The group assembled especially for this production, recorded in New York in September 2011, features tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano as the optimal partner for Abercrombie. Together they mine deep feelings from these modern jazz classics.

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!
