"Like many excellent recordings, the first time you hear Lingua Franca you're impressed. Every time after that just gets better."
- All About Jazz

"There's a simple elegance to this encounter ... there are brilliant acoustic guitar glimmers ... the trio balances freedom and rigorous structure."
- JazzTimes.com

Longtime friends and musical collaborators Peter Epstein and Brad Shepik both became well established on the New York scene: Shepik as an intense and committed guitarist, Epstein as an equally versatile saxman, a superb composer and performer. It was Epstein who proposed this 2005 duo collaboration with both of them contributing pieces. Shepik suggested a young drummer he knew, Matt Kilmer, to complete the trio. The result, recorded in great sounding analogue, is alternately groove-based and more meditative, timeless, often with a folky feel.

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!
