David Axelrod is a composer/arranger/producer who has worked with such artists as Lou Rawls, Cannonball Adderley, Betty Everett, Gene Ammons, and Merl Saunders, among others. He has also produced albums on his own, including the innovative rock version of Handel’s Messiah. Heavy Axe is Axelrod’s first Fantasy album under his own name; it’s his first “non-concept” type LP. It is also the first time Axelrod has not produced himself, turning over the producing chores here to Cannonball Adderley. “Axe” and “Cannon” work together constantly, but Axe is usually producing Cannon—not the other way around! Axelrod is a leader. He’s always out there in the musical vanguard, defying categorization. His versatility is indeed amazing. He’s not a jazz man, not necessarily “R&B,” not even a pop music man. He’s just musical. He covers the entire spectrum of music, from the most sophisticated of classicists (i.e., Handel, Ravel) on down to the funkiest black brother on the street who whistles a tune.

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!
