ECHOES SEPTEMBER CD OF THE MONTH
JEFF JOHNSON & BRIAN DUNNING: THE KATURRAN ODYSSEY Keyboardist Jeff Johnson and flute player Brian Dunning have
been creating a unique brand of Celtic chamber fusion for about
a decade. They've recorded on the Windham Hill and Hearts of Space
labels and have songs on just about every Windham Hill Celtic,
Solstice and Christmas collection. Their new CD, THE KATURRAN
ODYSSEY (Hearts of Space) takes on Terryl Whitlach's illustrated
book, The Katurran Odyssey. Like most Johnson & Dunning CDs,
it's a wonderful mix of gorgeous, Celtic inflected melodies, and
moods that range from serene to dark. It's our September CD of
the Month on Echoes.
ARYEH FRANKFURTER: CLOGGED FIDDLES & CELTIC HARPS Aryeh Frankfurter is a multi-instrumentalist based in San
Francisco who can whip off world jazz fusion solos on violin or
pluck the most delicate melody on Celtic harp. On his latest album,
AURORA OF THE NORTHERN HARP (Lion Harp), he adapts music for Swedish
cow horn and clogged fiddle to his Celtic strings. In his basement
studio, Aryeh Frankfurter reveals the roots and instruments behind
his exotic sound.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH MARK HOLLAND Mark Holland is the St. Louis-based virtuoso of the Native
American flute and the leader of the world fusion band, Autumn's
Child. Mark goes solo when he comes to the Echoes living room,
playing his Native American flutes and telling the stories behind
the songs of his new CD, FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS (Cedar 'n Sage),
an album inspired by the events of 9/11 and its aftermath.
ACOUSTIC EIDOLON: AMERICAN EIDOLON Acoustic Eidolon creates a delicate chamber music based on
the guitjo of Joe Scott and the cello of Hannah Alkire. The guitjo
is a hybrid, double necked acoustic guitar combining a regular
guitar and a banjo. Scott first unveiled it in his previous band,
Wind Machine. With Hannah Alkire, he plucks out a delicate filigree,
sounding more like harp than banjo. Their latest album is LIVE
TO DANCE (Acoustic Woods). Acoustic Eidolon conjures up a music
born in romance, tragedy and affirmation.
