Marcus Strickland’s debut release for Blue Note, Nihil Novi (Latin for "Nothing New") deals with our relationship to time: seemingly new events that are actually cyclical occurrences or developments from where the past left off. Strickland, the multi-instrumentalist and beat maker, recorded the album with a strong and inspiring urgency that is inclusive of, yet not exclusively from his jazz roots. Strickland says he mustered up the courage to ask one of his heroines to produce, genre-defying bass guru and songstress Meshell Ndegeocello, who generously accepted the invitation.

"A musician does not grow from forcing themselves into a vacuum. Genres eventually cross pollinate, making our ability to be in the present more relevant than the original given terms. Creativity does not stay within lanes, it feeds off of its surroundings ... one great tool that we have to navigate the present is culture ... being the culmination of our triumphs and failures, gives us an advantage when dealing with similar situations and it reminds us of what is important. So for me Nihil Novi is just a reminder to me of what's mostly important to me, musically and emotionally. I just want it to feel good."

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!
