"There's a tentativeness to some of this music, but Allen's mix of intelligence, spontaneity and precision nonetheless put her in a very special league."
- John Fordham, The Guardian

"With Allen’s varicoloured pianism vibrating between the familiar and the unfamiliar in a really exciting way, at times you really have to do close listening to hear the original."
- Peter Quinn, Jazzwise Magazine

Grand River Crossings completes pianist Geri Allen's trilogy for Motéma, three albums which feature Allen's signature solo piano arrangements. This release pays tribute to her hometown and the legacy of Motown Records with Allen's renditions of such classics as Michael Jackson's Wanna Be Startin' Somethin and Smokey Robinson's Tears of a Clown. D-Town heroes in their own right, Marcus Belgrave and David MacMurray make guest appearances on several tracks, making this an important celebration of Detroit's musical history.

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!
