"Four Stars ... Ortiz has found two excellent compadres ... there's no doubt that these are improvisation heavy workouts. Latin grooves bubble covertly and Ornette Coleman and Thelonious Monk are brilliantly covered ..."
- All About Jazz

"... (Ortiz's) growing reputation is confirmed by this New York recording of tautly percussive originals and a couple of Ornette Coleman and Thelonious Monk covers ... Ortiz is partnered by bassist Eric Revis and one of jazz’s sharpest drummers, Gerald Cleaver ... Ortiz belongs in the ballpark of time-bending piano experimenters such as Vijay Iyer, David Virelles and the late Paul Bley, but his group plays with one mind ... it’s bracing contemporary jazz ..."
- The Guardian

Cuban-American pianist and composer Aruán Ortiz makes his mark on the international jazz scene with the release of the highly-praised Hidden Voices, recorded as a trio with bass player Eric Revis and drummer Gerald Cleaver. Ortiz, a native of Santiago de Cuba, has been called the latest Cuban prodigy to arrive in the US. His carefully structured music is an exciting mix of contemporary classical sounds, Afro-Cuban rhythms and powerful jazz improvisation, forged into a highly individual sound. Alongside seven originals, Ortiz tackles cover versions of songs by both Thelonious Monk and Ornette Coleman and concludes the programme with a festive traditional Cuban tune.

"I was thinking about this album as a circle with no beginning and no end."

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!
