Doc Rossi’s latest album, Parlors, Porches & Islands is a journey from 19th-century parlor music that found its way to traditional rural players, to Slack Key players in Hawai’i, and to Doc’s own music. Roots can be tough, tangled and gritty, and they don’t always reveal what we might expect. Some might be puzzled to find the roots of blues and old-time guitar in bourgeois parlor music, but it fascinates Rossi. As Joseph Campbell says, ‘it’s what we share in common that is most revealing.’ Although Doc Rossi’s musical roots are firmly in America, his travels have given him an appreciation for many kinds of traditional and ‘art' musics. This album was recorded in a converted workshop near Porto, in the fishing town of Espinho on the Atlantic coast, looking back at where he started. His evocative fingerpicking blends the ancient sounds of early music, the intricacies of traditional dance music, and the mystery of the 'Old Weird America.’

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!
