"He has a storyteller’s ability that makes each note sound important."
- Jazzwise

"Four Stars ... the (piano-led power trio) phenomenon survives and thrives. A perfect exemplar must be Kingdom ... Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin' is given a refreshing and all-too-rare jazz reworking which, due to its insistent timeless melody, undoubtedly becomes the standout track on the album. Judging by this fully engaging and satisfying album the piano-led power trio is most definitely alive and well."
- All About Jazz

Known for his work with ECM trumpeter Tomasz Stanko, Finnish pianist and composer Alexi Tuomarila has quietly grown into a musical force to reckon with. A true sculptor of sound, Tuomarila builds awe-inspiring melodic lines with precision and rhythmic finesse, decorated with a vibrant imagination, energy undercut with melancholy. On Kingdom he is joined by his longtime comrades Mats Eilertsen on double bass and drummer Olavi Louhivuori, two of the most respected figures in European jazz. Eilertsen and Louhivuori combine wonderfully fluid technical proficiency and world class musicianship as they formidably articulate everything Tuomarila plays; their improvisations are bold and developed with sleekness and poise.

"I’ve spent years on the road, touring and recording in many different cities and countries. I’ve now reached a time in this life that I feel settled and at home in Helsinki. This album represents these feelings. To share this music with Mats and Olavi, two of the best musicians I know, is humbling and rewarding."

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!
