"... Shorter wrought the hipfest Super Nova in the company of a gaggle of guitarists and percussionists ... while typical in many ways of jazz in 1969, is by no means the average Blue Note session or the average Wayne Shorter album, but it has its charms ... a stellar lineup ... ultimately a period piece, although one may claim a wee place for it in history as an early rivulet of the now-mighty stream called world music."
- All About Jazz

Wayne Shorter's landmark Super Nova, released in 1969, marks the beginning of the saxophonist's venture into fusion jazz. Playing the soprano sax exclusively on these songs, almost all originals, Shorter is backed by several musicians who would go on to dominate 1970s fusion including Chick Corea, Miroslav Vitous and John McLaughlin.

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!
