"... when Eick does solo, it's with an economical precision that weaves through grooves and changes with equal aplomb ... a quantum leap, Skala's combination of melody-driven material and effortlessly tasteful contributions from a larger cast of characters confidently delivers on the promises made by The Door's compelling statement of intent."
- All About Jazz

On Skala, Norwegian trumpeter Mathias Eick extends the concept and the panoramic sweep of his highly-acclaimed ECM debut The Door, which was dubbed one of 2008's best releases by All About Jazz. Eick’s intensely melodic trumpet occupies the centre stage on this follow-up of original tunes which will appeal to an audience beyond jazz listeners. Against the powerful backdrops offered by his sleek, modern band, driven by two drummers, Eick delivers richly lyrical soliloquies.

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!
