"... (a) masterpiece, with the quartet pulling together on an ambitiously large-scale piece, each member contributing wholeheartedly and passionately." - The Penguin Guide to Jazz "... takes on a majestic (and sometimes sombre) ceremonial tone ... music making as serious as the title might indicate ... (the quartet) was a master of the slow build, of a gradually intensifying soundscape. Nothing is rushed here ... the smallest gesture resonates with rich layers of meaning ... even when the tonal center emerges and the chord changes return to guide the performance to its terminus, this sense of transcendence remains ... those who know Jarrett through his solo piano efforts or his well-documented trio work should familiarize themselves with this piece ... all too soon, this period in his career would pass. Shortly after this recording, this fertile ensemble disbanded and Jarrett headed off in other directions." - Jazz.com This 1977 release features Keith Jarrett's epic album-long suite, on which he plays not only the piano but also soprano sax, bass recorder, celeste and some drums. He is joined by his celebrated American Quartet members Dewey Redman on tenor sax, bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Paul Motian.

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!
