“Nostalgic melodies, romantic just enough. And above all a consistent quintet, welded ... The solos are beautifully controlled, always serving the group. It must be said that the rhythm section is one of the most requested of the young jazz generation (in France) Florent Nisse on bass and Nicolas Charlier on drums.”
- Christian Grimauld, Couleurs Jazz

“Most of the tunes have a dreamy presence, but even when a track like Snake flashes some teeth or when guest Emile Parisien sparks a flame with his soprano sax on Imperfect Circle, it’s nothing that deviates from the overall melodic focus. If anything, when the changing tides of intensity spike upward, it only serves to accentuate the peaceful loveliness of the album’s quieter moments.”
- Dave Summer, Bird is the Worm

AWAKE emerged from the smoky clubs of Paris in 2011, a quintet formed by the young vanguard of the European contemporary jazz scene. Their debut album As We Fall finds the group playing with incredible synchronicity, original compositions by Romain Cuoq and Anthony Jambon bringing out a shared sense of self-expression in an improvised give and take. Emile Parisien’s guest appearance on soprano saxophone heightens the energy of this release with his madcap flourishes and register-defying solos.

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!
