"... noteworthy compositional strategies and structural elements are at play ... the greatest thrills usually come with the moments of impulsivity and improvisation ... the forces of individualism and solidarity are both alive and well here."
- All About Jazz

This album of "creative chamber jazz" from drummer and composer Harris Eisenstadt and his Golden State quartet was recorded in concert at the 2014 Vancouver Jazz Festival with Michael Moore on clarinet replacing Nicole Mitchell’s flute, as she was not available for the Canadian festivals tour. As before, the basic concept of the band puts orchestra instruments into chamber and improvisational contexts; Eisenstadt's influences include Eric Dolphy, Yusef Lateef and the AACM.

"In the end Golden State is a project built for my wife and me to get to play together in a small ensemble setting. Sara (bassoonist Schoenbeck) has been my longest active musical partner (in addition to our personal partnership). Since we had our son, Owen, almost six years ago, we have had less opportunity to play together. Wherever Golden State goes in the future, it will always be a small group, chamber-oriented project built on my collaboration with Sara."

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!
