Recorded in front of an enthusiastic audience at the Philharmonie concert hall in Cologne, Germany, Bill Laurance’s new live album is powered by the renowned 18-piece WDR Big Band. Under the direction of principal conductor Bob Mintzer (renowned tenor saxophonist, longtime member of the Yellowjackets, and leader of his own Grammy-winning Bob Mintzer Big Band), this adventurous outing finds Laurance re-imagining previously recorded works on a much grander scale. "I always imagined these compositions to be played by an orchestra, and it's a rare opportunity to have your music realized with a large ensemble of this caliber," said Laurance. In some ways, the album is an extension of Snarky Puppy's orchestral collaboration with the Netherlands’ Metropole Orkest, which resulted in the 2015 Grammy award-winning Sylva (Best Contemporary Instrumental Album). Cinematic in nature with surprises around every corner, the album encapsulates the depth of Laurance’s compositions and remarkable qualities of the band bringing them to life.

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!
