"The sound Francois Houle gets from his clarinet is so beautiful you wish you could squirrel it away, hide it from your friends, so you can have it all to yourself. Houle's lovely tone is in full force here ... (his) sound folds rather well into Delbecq's abstract, airy and rarefied style ... their duets are filled with playful, coy unison lines and melodies that are as fresh and sharp as a mint."
- JazzTimes.com

Five years after their first collaboration, French pianist Benoit Delbecq and Canadian clarinetist François Houle team up on this 2002 release which features pieces for piano or prepared piano and clarinets (sometimes two played simultaneously) and a solo improvisation by each musician. Composition and improvisation flow together into a dreamlike continuum where jazz and new music intersect.

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!
