"Four Stars ... Jürg Wickihalder, a European jazz luminary joined here by the eclectic, light-touch percussionist Lucas Niggli and improv/contemporary-classical bass virtuoso Barry Guy, the latter celebrating his 70th year with the same boundary-busting energy he has displayed for the last 50 ... edgy jazz composing, awesome virtuosity, collective improv and invitingly songlike melody are all very subtly fused together here."
- The Guardian

This album brings together three European musicians from different generations, each with his own musical background: three sound artists, three virtuosic instrumentalists, three breathtaking improvisers. Saxophonist Jürg Wickihalder, bassist Barry Guy and drummer Lucas Niggl deliver strong melodies, a deeply affecting and sensuous lyricism, moments of exciting groove and a rare and fascinating textural density. It would be impossible not to notice both the trio's joy in working together and evident desire to play.

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!
