"Five Stars ... full of melody, character and spontaneous empathy ... a remarkable demonstration of how the catchiness of a pop song can be imparted to a tone poem that seems to barely rise above a murmur ... it's low key, but glowing with life."
- The Guardian

"... the threesome conjures a delicate, almost fragile sound, one that threatens to dissipate at the slightest disturbance ... there is nonetheless a sense of restrained craftsmanship in the construction of each piece ... the music seems the result of each member painstakingly adding the most minimal of touches to the whole."
- JazzTimes.com

"Five Stars ... sometimes unexpected connections yield the most wonderful results ... quite possibly the finest saxophone trio recordings of the new millennium and one to rival previous ECM successes ... an album of gentle freedom, spare but unfailing lyricism and the kind of constant revelation that makes it a new experience with every listen ... rather than a demonstration of prowess, Trio Libero is proof that there's power in subtlety and drama in understatement ... a remarkable example of what happens when three masterful players check their egos at the door and surrender completely to the moment."
- All About Jazz

British saxophonist Andy Sheppard debuts his freely lyrical ensemble the Trio Libero, which co-stars double bassist Michel Benita and drummer Sebastian Rochford. All three players share a sense of stylistic open-mindedness: in all contexts, interaction is highly creative, as Benita and Rochford respond perceptively to Sheppard’s melodically and rhythmically inventive lines.

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!
