"... kicked off an early-'60s hot streak ... what really makes (this record) is Ervin's Texas shout on tenor saxophone, a sound that's both down-home and majestic."
- NPR

Recorded and released in 1960, The Book Cooks is the debut album from saxophonist Booker Ervin as bandleader and launched his successful but abbreviated solo career. Ervin is joined on the front line by fellow tenor sax player Zoot Sims and Tommy Turrentine on trumpet, accompanied by the rhythm section of pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist George Tucker and Dannie Richmond on drums.

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!
