A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH TINH Vietnamese guitarist Tinh plays live in the Echoes living
Originally a classical player, Tinh was converted to the steel-string
side when the legendary John Fahey produced his debut album MY
VIETNAMESE SUITE (East Wind Records). His new CD, ACOUSTIC RAIN
(East Wind), was produced by another legendary music figure, pianist
George Winston. Although he was born in Vietnam and as a child
fled the country days before the fall of Saigon. Tinh has developed
a style of acoustic guitar playing that speaks more of Americana
than Asia. Tinh travels from his home in Oregon to play in the
Echoes living room.
BARBARA HIGBIE: NEW MUSIC CHAMELEON From bluegrass to the avant-garde, Windham Hill to Slowbaby
Records, New Age diva to feminist minstrel, pianist Barbara Higbie
has charted a singular course through modern music. The pianist
and fiddler came to early renown on the Windham Hill label, recording
the influential Tideline CD with then-husband, fiddler Darol Anger.
That led to the formation of Montreux, a heady acoustic fusion
of jazz, bluegrass and chamber music that included bassist Michael
Manring and mandolinist Mike Marshall. Higbie veered off into
the world of feminist music, touring and recording with Theresa
Trull, among others. Now, Higbie is focusing on solo piano for
the first time, with the release of VARIATIONS ON A HAPPY ENDING
(Slowbaby). In her East Bay home, Higbie takes us into a music
that can bring Charlie Brown and Terry Riley together.
NICHOLAS GUNN'S AMERICAN LANDSCAPES Nicholas Gunn makes his living from the land. He's not a
farmer. He's a flute player who has been crafting compositions
inspired by the natural wonders of America. It began in 1991
with his album, AFTERNOON IN SEDONA and continues through MUSIC
OF THE GRAND CANYON and his latest, THROUGH THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS
(Gemini Sun Records). Gunn's music isn't chirping crickets and
babbling brooks. ALong with his flute he uses dynamic African
percussion and synthesizers to create his environmentally friendly
music. He talks about it on Echoes.
