This atmospheric album from Brooklyn-based guitarist extraordinaire Ben Monder is like a dream in sound: freely floating and kaleidoscopic, mostly improvised and full of surprise. Amorphae is framed by two solo guitar pieces and has at its centre two trio performances featuring Monder with Pete Rende on synthesizer and free jazz veteran Andrew Cyrille on drums. The album also features Monder and Cyrille on two duets and Monder with late, great drummer Paul Motian on two more.

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!
