A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH RADHIKA MILLER Radhika Miller was a flutist following the traditional classical
path when she began meditating and discovered Indian music. That
sent her off in a new musical direction that has found her creating
a classical world fusion. She's released dozens of solo albums,
including her recent CD, HEAVEN, and she appears on the best selling
Celtic Twilight collection. In her Marin County home, Radhika
Miller and pianist/percussionist Tony D'Anna engage in a contemplative
dialogue in music.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH REDSHIFT Redshift is a retro-space music band led by longtime English
synthesist Mark Shreeve. Their latest albums include FAULTLINE
and OBLIVION (Distant Sun Productions). In the front room of Mark
Shreeve's London home, vintage 1970s era synthesizers like the
Mini-Moog, Moog Series III and Arp 2600 sit alongside the latest
digital gear and computers. With these instruments, Redshift performed
for us live in the summer of 2003. In this special edition of
Redshift, Mark is joined by veteran synthesist Ian Boddy in two
spontaneous deep space excursions. A track from this performance
is on BRIDGES: THE ECHOES LIVING ROOM CONCERTS VOLUME 9.
JEFF JOHNSON & BRIAN DUNNING: FANTASY PILGRIMAGE Remember classic concept albums like Pink Floyd's DARK SIDE
OF THE MOON, or Yes' TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS? Washington
state keyboardist Jeff Johnson and Irish flutist Brian Dunning
harken back to those days with albums like Songs of Albion and
Byzantium that use books as imagistic launch pads. Their latest
CD is THE KATURRAN ODYSSEY (Hearts of Space), based on a graphic
novel of the same name, illustrated by Terryl Whitlach who created
many Star Wars creatures. Johnson & Dunning talk about their
HUZUR NAWAZ: LABYRINTHS Before adopting the Sufi name of Huzur Nawaz, he was known
as Stephen Coughlin, releasing his first album, SONG OF THE REED
under that name in the 1980s. Since then, he's been exploring
a sound that travels from San Francisco's Grace Cathedral to Sufi
meditations, playing his Indian bansuri flute as well as his soprano
saxophone. In his home in Central California, Huzur Nawaz talks
about unfolding the sound of his albums, HUZUR THE PRESENCE (Coughlin)
and his collaboration on MYSTERIES by Musica Divina (Musica Divina).
