"What a wonderful band Delbecq has put together! This finely synchronized unit creates an exceptional ensemble sound ... offering up dark, exotic, mysterious music full of odd harmonies and malleable polyrhythms and abstract textures. An unusual timbral mix, viola and tenor saxophone, sets the sound apart ... a very new and exciting sound ..."
- All About Jazz

Phonetics from Paris-based pianist and composer Benoît Delbecq presents an artist at the height of his imaginative and synthesizing powers. Recorded with an international quintet and featuring prepared piano on several tracks, this album showcases Delbecq's broad and deep vision of music, burnished by the audiophile recording. Phonetics was named one of the 12 best records of 2004 ("Choc de l’année") by Jazzman, the leading jazz magazine in France.

"When I started writing I had a sound in mind … a very open but very rhythmic way of playing … and different directions I wanted us to explore. The mixed timbres of tenor and viola were in a sense the key to the group."
- Benoît Delbecq

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!
