"... Mitchell had a sound in every way as individual as his label mates Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan ... The Thing To Do makes you wish Mitchell had been this focused and well accompanied more of the time. Blessed with a lyrically brassy tone imbued with a shade of vulnerability perfect for ballads, Mitchell absolutely reveals a confidence and zest in this finely programmed set ... (a reminder) that Mitchell's glowing legacy is worthy of serious reconsideration ..."
- All About Jazz

Hard bop trumpeter Blue Mitchell recorded The Thing To Do in 1964 for Blue Note, his first for the label as leader, accompanied by a young Chick Corea on piano at the very beginning of his professional career. Corea even contributes the album's closing number, Chick's Tune. Tenor saxophonist Junior Cook joins Mitchell on the front line, backed by bassist Gene Taylor and drummer Al Foster.

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!
