A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH ONE ALTERNATIVE One Alternative is a long-lived acoustic fusion trio from
the Philadelphia area with two acoustic guitars, Mark Oppenlander
and Len Doyle, and oboist Jill Haley who has recorded on Windham
Hill Records. They've released several albums over the last 20
years and just produced a new one called PENDULUM (One Alternative).
It expands their chamber sound into almost orchestral dimensions.
One Alternative comes into the Echoes Living Room to unfold their
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH THE MUNDI ENSEMBLE The Mundi Ensemble plays ancient music, but with a post-modern
sensibility. Based in Austin, Texas, but headed up by British
born guitarist Darrel Mayer, the ensemble plays ancient songs
and new compositions with a minimalist sensibility and a hint
of Duane Eddy, albeit on classical guitar. Their second album,
AS BARLEY FALLS (International Rain) is a whimsical mix of old
and new, recorded live in a church. We gathered The Mundi Ensemble
in their Austin living room for a riveting live performance of
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.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH AUTUMN'S CHILD St. Louis-based Native flute player Marc Holland brings his
global chamber music ensemble, Autumn's Child into Echoes to play
live. Mark Holland isn't Native American, but he's mastered the
Native American flute. Over the course of several albums with
his group, Autumn's Child, he's been developing a chamber fusion
sound mixing percussion instruments from Africa and the Middle
East along with cello and guitar. Autumn's Child's latest CD,
PROGRESSIVE WORLD (Cedar 'n' Sage), is the finest exposition of
their music to date and placed in the Top 15 of Echoes' Listener
Poll for 2002. Mark Holland brings in an all-star group including
percussionist N. Scott Robinson and Jimmy Buffett band members
Jim and Peter Mayer on guitar and bass.
A JOURNEY INTO FANTASY. We'll be hearing hymns to elfin kingdoms, Atlantean priestesses
and imaginary worlds as we hear the music of fantasy.
