Coming Of Age, the second album from acclaimed American bassist Ben Williams, continues to showcase his impeccable talent for acoustic and electric bass as he explores the common elements of jazz, hip-hop, rock and soul. He embarks on a bolder journey this time out with more original songs (nine out of the 11 tunes here are Williams compositions) and a reflection of his new outlook as a seasoned musician. Among the two non-originals is a unique cover of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. The album is chock full of special guest musicians including a string quartet and noteworthy names from the world of jazz.

"The name of my album is about developing into manhood through the interpretation of my music ... I seek to fulfill my responsibility for being an artist by conveying my thoughts about the many things that are plaguing us today."
- Ben Williams

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!
