"... the real question: how is the music? In a nutshell, excellent, for a number of reasons ... only a few ECM recordings have been made in clubs, and none of them sound like this ..."
- All About Jazz

This reissue of a 1973 album from pianist Abdullah Ibrahim kicks off a series of re-releases from ECM under the banner Re:Solutions, historically-important music presented in modern audio quality. This live set, recorded in 1969 in a noisy club in Copenhagen, serves as a documentary of Ibrahim's performance on stage, yet the essence of his communication with the audience comes through loud and clear. Through the robust rhythms of his solo piano style, Ibrahim re-examines the history of jazz from a South African perspective, with echoes of songs of the townships and vamps that hint of Monk and Duke and much more. African Piano was a highly influential album in its day and it has lost none of its power.

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!
