I heard parts of this on NPR last night. I was driving home alone on winter solstice through the cold and foggy late night. Paul's compositions were brilliant and moving. It was a time of snychronicity for me, the right music, the right light, the right time, the right place. Thank you. A night I will not soon forget.

Awesome Music for a Museum: Spiritual and Sublime

In this, the finest album by Paul Winter and friends in many a year (2010 Grammy finalist, thus far, at time of this review), we hear a large variety of sounds and rhythms performed on saxophone, sarangi, koto, bansuri, taiko, bendir and other percussion, English horn, oboe, organ, keyboard, carillon, plus voice and chorus. All-star musicians include Winter, Paul McCandless, Eugene Freisen, Glen Velez, Don Gruisin, Steve Gorn, Yangjin Lamu, Dhruba Ghosh, and Japanese specialists. The rich acoustic resonance of the recording chamber is in the Shigaraki Mountain museum designed by I. M. Pei in the form of a Japanese farmhouse, though the bulk of the collection is actually underground. The variety of musical forms reflect the diverse Asian collections of this famous museum, and although they are not traditional but contemporary and musical fusions, they are instilled with the spirit of the ethnic source. Certainly quiet and slow, spiritual and meditative, the frequent changes in timbre and style excite and maintain attention. As Winter has done in the past, samples of animal sounds, e.g., birds and whale, are part of some tracks. Unusual in setting and format, this outstanding and beautiful music will be particularly appreciated by jazz fans of Oregon, new age enthusiasts of Paul Winter, and devotees of world music. As the sublime natural site of the museum inspired the musicians, this recording will delight the listener.

Winter first came to public prominence in 1961 as the winner of a collegiate jazz festival held at Notre Dame University; one of that event's judges, John Hammond, subsequently signed the group to a Columbia recording contract. In 1962, the band was sent on a State Department tour of Latin America. That venture planted the first seeds of change in Winter's concept. In 1967, he abandoned traditional jazz format in favor of a lineup that featured non-Western instruments. The Paul Winter Consort, as...
