"... Burton has outdone himself with this recording ... a natural success ..." - Billboard "Five Stars ... an album unlike any other in Burton's recorded work and that includes everything that's followed ... some of the most experimental and compelling music of his career ... only serves to emphasize just how unorthodox Burton had become by that time ... remains a captivating anomaly ..." - All About Jazz Sounding as fresh today as it did in 1973, Seven Songs places the Gary Burton Quartet in an orchestral context, accompanied by members of the NDR-Symphony Orchestra, Hamburg. The compositions, arranged, conducted and written mostly by Michael Gibbs, display influences of Messiaen and Charles Ives as well as Miles and Gil Evans. Featuring exceptional soloing by guitarist Mick Goodrick, bassist Steve Swallow and Burton himself, this album set a new standard for recordings of orchestral jazz.

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!
