"... Parnell knows his way 'round the three octaves of metal keys and sustain pedal and his mission is to put this instrument centre stage ... Parnell’s spectacular playing is matched by his excellent accompanist, Amir Farid. The duo have great musical understanding and chemistry ..."
- Limelight

Some of music’s "greatest hits" are reimagined by one of the world’s foremost vibraphone players, Nick Parnell and his mallets of steel on Vibes Virtuoso. Together with award-winning pianist Amir Farid, Parnell makes old music new again, as the duo injects fresh energy into this familiar repertoire, including favourites such as Gershwin’s Summertime, Albeniz’s Tango, Ravel’s Alborada del Gracioso and Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, all cleverly reinterpreted to create a whole new, vibrant listening experience.

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!
