"Hearing Bley in action, applying his own sense of order to various approaches, still feels electrifying ... the energy is high even when Bley just lets chords resonate gently." - JazzTimes.com This rare solo performance by one of jazz’s great originals, Canadian pianist Paul Bley, was recorded live at the Oslo Jazz Festival in 2008 and captures the uniqueness of a Bley concert. Encouraged by an attentive and enthusiastic Norwegian audience, Bley shapes music in the moment, plays his own compositions and brings the music to a fine conclusion with a performance of Sonny Rollins’s Pent-Up House.

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!
