"(Haden) positioned himself at the forefront of jazz through the entirety of a remarkable career, making some of his most potent statements with the Liberation Music Orchestra."
- Chicago Tribune

The environmentally-themed Time / Life marks the final recording that late bassist Charlie Haden made with the band he co-founded with Carla Bley in 1969, the Liberation Music Orchestra. Partially recorded live in Antwerp in 2011, the album was still being finalized while Haden was ill, therefore his friend and fellow bassist Steve Swallow appears on the three studio tracks.

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!
