At Ease is one of the most charming and attractive of the many albums Coleman Hawkins recorded: a collection of ballads played with great affection for the melody. Hawkins could be fiercely aggressive in his playing, however on this collection he displays his tenderness. If ever there was a master of the ballad it was Hawkins. His romantic style and sound caused one writer to say: "Hawk turned the saxophone into the sexophone." Recorded with the expert help of pianist Tommy Flanagan.

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!
