"... very likable and intoxicating brew that benefits from a collective sound ... with technical prowess of obvious proportions, Blade is equally reticent about flashy drum displays ..."
- All About Jazz

On this second album with his Fellowship, Brian Blade further displays his skills as a bandleader and composer as well as a drummer. Blade composes songs as if he were painting a broad mural, sculpting landscapes of sound, orchestral in feel and truly breathtaking in grandeur. His own playing ties the septet together in ways that recall the best progressive jazz of the 1960s and fusion of the 1970s. The subjects of songs are diverse: childhood memories of fishing the Louisiana bayous, global ethnic strife and the violent world that children must face every day. For Perceptual, Blade even handled production duties himself. Daniel Lanois plays spooky fuzz guitar on one track and former Blade employer Joni Mitchell adds a willowy vocal on another.

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!
