"... a huge step forward in sound recording techniques where jazz is concerned. The recordings have a 'live' quality not present in many others."
- MusicWeb International

"... widely regarded as one of the most natural-sounding jazz recordings of all time ... a long-standing audiophile reference ... contains excellent music and performances."
- EnjoytheMusic.com

Jazz at the Pawnshop is considered one of the most famous audiophile albums in music. Recorded over two nights in December 1976 at the intimate Pawnshop jazz club in Stockholm, both the musicianship and the engineering came together in a magical symbiosis captured on this enduring classic. This 30th anniversary package includes for the first time the complete recordings from those two nights; some of the tracks having only been available in limited editions. Recording engineer Gert Palmcrantz used one pair of microphones spaced eight inches apart for for the main pick-up, with a couple of microphones placed to register the “live” atmosphere and a few discrete support mikes, all recorded on a pair of two-track Nagra tape recorders in the restaurant kitchen!

"You hear the clink of glasses, the chime of the bell to acknowledge a tip, the burr of conversation. It all fits; that intimate club atmosphere that sparks jazz at its best. You feel as though you're there. Which is Palmcrantz's triumph and why Jazz at the Pawnshop is likely to continue to fascinate both jazz and audio fans for a good many years to come."

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!
