"... a groundbreaking encounter between jazz piano and the sonic resources of contemporary classical music, between American tradition and the European avant-garde."
- All About Jazz

"... the double trio isn’t a sextet making twice as much sound as a trio. Rather, it functions as a three piece band with twice as many ideas."
- CriticalJazz.com

This rare double trio configuration brings together two pianists, two bassists and two drummers; the result is a multi-faceted collaboration with opportunities for various combinations of duos and trios as well as full group interaction. The music has its moments of abstraction, its moonlit soundscapes, but also embraces a jazzier aesthetic on the Monkish/Lacyish Night for Day. The two fantastic pianists who sparked this 2013 release, both winners of the Grand Prix du Disque for jazz, are Fred Hersch and Benoît Delbecq. In 2008 Hersch attended one of Delbecq's gigs in New York. Mutual fans who wanted to work together on something "novel and a bit outrageous,” Delbecq came up with the idea of a double trio.

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!
