"Dr. John is a musical icon and the release of Ske-Dat-De-Dat is a triumph that pays more than fitting homage to perhaps the greatest musician that this country has known!"
- CriticalJazz.com

Ske-Dat-De-Dat... The Spirit of Satch pays heartfelt tribute to another larger-than-life New Orleans legend, seminal trumpeter and vocalist Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, whose musical innovations created the template for 20th century jazz, and whose playful attitude and life-embracing spirit made him a beloved figure whose worldwide appeal transcended music. This 2014 release honours Armstrong’s musical genius as well as his effervescent personality with 13 classic numbers drawn from various phases of Armstrong’s five decade career. Dr. John is joined by a stellar supporting cast, including Bonnie Raitt, Ledisi and the Blind Boys of Alabama, who update the material while maintaining the music’s timeless emotional appeal. The subtitle The Spirit of Satch is particularly appropriate given the album’s birth cycle, which Dr. John says was set into motion when the late Armstrong, whom he’d only met once during his lifetime, in the office of their mutual manager, came to him in a dream.

“He’s the most famous guy that ever came out of my neighbourhood. He became a legend all over, for his trumpet playin’ and everything else, and he was the United States’ ambassador to the world."

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!
