"It's been a while since we've heard pianist Billy Childs really dig in ... Rebirth brings that part of Childs' past back into view, but it also continues to shine a light on his clarity of expression and his incredible skills in the arranging department. It's punctilious and unpredictably powerful all at once ... gratifying in so many ways ... Childs hasn't always put all of his talent cards on the table at once, suppressing one aspect of his artistry in deference to others at times, so it's nice to see that change with Rebirth. He's showing his full hand here: chops, nuance, composing, arranging and all ... a musical royal flush if ever there was one."
- All About Jazz

On the appropriately-titled Rebirth, multiple Grammy Award-winning pianist Billy Childs reaches back to the start of his almost astoundingly varied experience, leading a small group of superb jazz players. At his musical core, Childs is an improvising pianist with the ability to equally distill the harmonic and rhythmic languages of classical and jazz. Receptive to extended possibilities as they come along, he leaves an open door for input from his colleagues. Rebirth touches the combustible intimacy that Childs knew as a member of Freddie Hubbard's and J.J. Johnson's bands and has instilled into his own ensembles. Childs both returns to an instrumental posture he once knew and approaches the small group with a fresh perspective.

"I’m revisiting some familiar ground with different musical eyes. My playing is more evolved now, influenced by newer musical trends. You’re hearing something on this album that I love doing but that I haven’t done a lot of lately: having musical conversations as a member of a group. That’s what I love."

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!
