"... as sublime, delicately woven and intricately executed an album as he's done in his nearly 25 year career ... speaks with the voice of three musicians whose distinctive and collective personalities imbue these eight tracks ... Driftwood's largely introspective tone is occasionally broken by brighter shards of light ... the recording that deserves to finally broaden his reputation from those in the know ..." - All About Jazz Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel makes his ECM leader debut with Driftwood, a trio album of subtlety and depth featuring renowned American jazz players Larry Grenadier on double bass and drummer Brian Blade. Muthspiel has enjoyed long, productive musical friendships live and on record with both Grenadier and Blade, leading to a sense of almost telepathic interplay on Driftwood. The trio creates a ravishing sound, lyrical, grooving and atmospheric by turns, captured with fidelity. Among the compositions are tributes to Muthspiel's heroes Joe Zawinul and Michael Brecker.

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!
