If variety is the spice of life, A Different Take adds a bowlful of zest to the idea of standard repertoire. On their debut album, the Gruca White Ensemble’s creative programming and energetic performance lead listeners on a journey through intermingled genres and out-of-the-box renditions of well-known tunes. Comprised of classical guitarist Robert Gruca and flutist Linda White, the Gruca White Ensemble draws from countless musical cultures, local composers, their own multifaceted experience as performers, and their unbridled creativity to create a unique blend of classical, world and rock music. A truly dynamic duo, Gruca’s colorful guitar tone and White’s command of a variety of flutes perfectly complement each other throughout every track. Keeping well in step with the vision of Big Round Records, A Different Take leaves virtually no stone of genre unturned. The Gruca White Ensemble deftly tackles miniatures inflected with David Byrne grooves and traditional Japanese, African and Balkan music, with their interpretations of hits by such pop luminaries as Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder peppered in for good measure. Whether listeners are fans of funk, jazz, classical, or good-old rock and roll, this album is sure to satisfy.

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!
