"Four Stars ... there are slow pieces that sound like pop ballads ... coolly strutting episodes ... boppish bass walks ... it's sensual and elegant."
- The Guardian

"There is a lot of lovely new music here ... the drummer seems to have a bottomless pit of both timbral and rhythmic ideas ... a fine addition ..."
- TheJazzBreakfast.com

"... defined by accessible grooves and singable melodies ... still absolutely players' recordings and certainly nowhere near 'smooth jazz' ... Katché made the right decision to leave more space ... it would be an absolute mistake to constrain a quartet this good to just three or four minutes. Still, not a note is wasted with what may be his best group yet ... may be ECM's most vital, booty-shaking record ever ..."
- All About Jazz

On this self-titled 2012 release, his fourth for ECM, Manu Katché's unique drumming sets the scene and direction with compositions and arrangements radiating outward from its rhythm patterns, his strongly propulsive yet relaxed groove unlike any other drummer’s. The bass-less Katché band assembled for this album includes Norwegians Nils Petter Molvær on trumpet and saxophonist Tore Brunborg (the only musician invited back from Third Round) with British keyboardist Jim Watson on lyrical piano and thick, swirling organ. Katché himself plays the piano solo on the final track.

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!
