For many years now, Abbey Lincoln has been recognized as a strong and strong-minded, racially aware and rhythmically secure artist. But early in her career–as a striking-looking young woman making the transition from being a sleek supper-club performer–it was difficult to gain acceptance as a true jazz singer. This seems hard to understand now, listening to her treatments of material by such as Duke Ellington and Kurt Weill, accompanied by a galaxy of players (who always knew her worth) like Max Roach, Wynton Kelly, Cedar Walton, Kenny Dorham, Stanley Turrentine, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones. Abbey Is Blue was Lincoln's fourth album, featuring tracks recorded in 1959 for Riverside Records. A breakout performance for the jazz legend - this album displays Lincoln perfectly poised between jazz for show and jazz with a purpose. The album features an all-star line-up that includes Kenny Dorham, Stanley Turrentine, Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, Philly Joe Jones and Max Roach. It is now re-released with all-analog mastering from the original tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.

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!
