"... it's possible to view his work in discrete timeframes, appreciate where he was at any particular time and see where he was heading." - All About Jazz Released in 1964, The Believer contains songs John Coltrane recorded during sessions in 1957 and 1958 for Prestige. The 1958 tracks had never been released until this package came out while the earlier tracks were included on a 1960 album by the Ray Draper Quintet on which Coltrane was a session player. The 1958 songs feature Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and drummers Louis Hayes and Art Taylor.

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!
