BURNING SKY'S MUSIC FROM THE MESA Burning Sky is the longtime Native American group creating
a chamber sound based around the flutes of Kelvin Mockingbird
and the guitar of Aaron White. They've just released a new CD,
A SIMPLE MAN (Canyon Records) that extends their sound. In Phoenix,
we travel from the workshop of Aaron White, where he carves Native
American flutes, to the studios of Canyon Records where Burning
Sky talks about flute dreams and Native visions.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH PAT METHENY World renowned jazz guitarist Pat Metheny sits in the Echoes
Living Room to play his acoustic baritone guitar. Metheny has
just released his first solo acoustic guitar album, ONE QUIET
NIGHT (Warner Bros.). Metheny plays music from that album, including
meditative covers of songs by Norah Jones and Gerry & the
Pacemakers and a spontaneous improvisation drawn from the serene
states of ONE QUIET NIGHT.
ECHOES AT THE GRAMMIES The Grammy Awards generally aren't the place you'll find music
on the edges of sound, but every year we discover hidden gems
from the Echoes soundscape lodged in the nominees. Besides the
obvious New Age category, which this year includes Pat Metheny,
Kitaro and Peter Kater, we'll hear music drawn from the World
Music, Film Soundtracks and Alternative Music categories. Echoes
host John Diliberto will pick his favorites and likely winners.
It's on Echoes at the Grammies.
