"Singing Bowls and One" represents the realization of a long-held dream: inviting marvelous musicians from different cultural mixes to improvise a series of duets with the singing bowls. Featured musicians include Downbeat poll winner Karl Berger, Indian classical flute maestro Steve Gorn, avant-garde jazz sax and brass player Joe McPhee, New Music accordion virtuoso Pauline Oliveros, and Renewalist Cantor Robert Esformes. The music - some instrumental, some vocal, and a spoken poem - represent such a wide and eclectic range that it is extremely difficult to categorize the result except to say that it is extraordinary.
Grammy award winning engineer Malcolm Cecil did the mixing and mastering for "Singing Bowls and One." (2 CD set) -P Blum
