New York-based saxophonist Michael Blake periodically returns to Vancouver, which he left in 1986, to create and record with his pick of that city's improvisers. On this release, his most ambitious in terms of writing and arranging, he adds cello and guitar plus guest instrumentalists and, on two pieces, his own lyrics. Also Blake's most conceptual work since his debut as leader in 1997, the suite was inspired by a tragic immigration incident in Vancouver in 1914, when several hundred East Indian immigrants, almost all Sikh, were turned away using exclusionist, racists laws of the day. "I hope listeners are moved emotionally by the subliminal message of how important it is that we as a society must listen to each other. Even in intense and dense situations the best music is the result of skill and empathy so that everyone is involved in the process of creating something coherent. It’s really reflective of the democratic process." - Michael Blake

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!
