"A moody, unforced album rich in nuances ... eight, spacious Blotnick compositions gently swayed by African-derived rhythms ... songs aren’t so much performed as they are flowing forth ... the mastery of space and tone within an improvisational setting is an art few have truly mastered; with Kush, Ryan Blotnick has shown himself to be among such rare masters."
- Something Else!

Guitarist Ryan Blotnick returns to an ensemble setting on these original compositions that mine a bittersweet melodic/harmonic vein balanced by an African-influenced rhythmic elan. Conceived as an antidote to the more aggressive forms of New York jazz, Kush offers freshly-minted waltzes, haunting ballads and more than a touch of Frisellian Americana, as well as a variety of grooves. Among the inspirations for Kush, Blotnick cites guitarists Jacob Bro, Ali Farka Touré, Marc Ribot, Alice Coltrane, Billy Strayhorn, Wayne Shorter and Bill Evans.

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!
