"... embodies two qualities that usually don’t go together: extreme breadth and extreme humility ... it’s pulsating, lumpy with long improvised phrases; it’s alive."
- The New York Times

"Four Stars ... shows his gift in revealing what is so often lost in performance: the heart of a song. He does it by respecting the primacy of melody ... the more you listen to this minor masterpiece, the more you realize the quiet beauty of this album is realized in the art of less is more ... he makes each (piece) sound as if they're all chapters from the same book. It's a story you sense he could spin forever and still leave you wanting more."
- The Guardian

"Five Stars ... the perfect combination of melodic resonance and liberal interpretation ... what makes Cantando another milestone is the introduction of (drummer) Jon Fält ... Fält's no less a colourist than Motian or Christensen ... the profound chemistry is undeniable as he brings new energy, encouraging his trio mates to play with a vitality not heard since (1998's) War Orphans, even as they all approach the music with more thoughtful abandon ... one of the pianist's best ... (builds) on past accomplishments while demonstrating newfound potential, greater diversity and unforeseen energy."
- All About Jazz

Cantando features the reconfigured Bobo Stenson Trio in a characteristically diverse performance, spanning original compositions, group improvisation and pieces by Peter Eben, Alban Berg, Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry and Silvio Rodriguez. Master pianist Stenson, long term bassist Anders Jormin and the newest member, responsive young drummer Jon Fält, have already developed a richly detailed sound unlike anything in modern jazz: both an extension of the jazz piano tradition and, with its windows opening onto classical music and world folklore, a force apart from it.

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!
