Paul Schwartz is a classical drop-out who has been updating operatic tunes on a pair of CDs called ARIA (Astor Place). On a new project called STATE OF GRACE (Windham Hill) he creates gothic hymns for the 21st century. Evoking the 11th century hymns of Abbess Hildegard von Bingen, he sets soprano Lisbeth Scott intoning Latin text over his modern, electronic arrangements. Paul Schwartz and Lisbeth Scott talk about entering a state of grace.

Sorma is a Japanese collective that includes members of Jalan Jalan and has that same sense of Eastern atmosphere, but their music here is much more dynamic. Thundering drums, chanting vocals and electronic atmospheres's mix in with traditional Japanese sounds in their highly imagistic album, MIRAGE OF THE EAST (Pacific Moon). We talk with Sorma #1, Yoichi Shimada about their eastern fusion.

Preston Reed wasn't trying to make a statement on his new album, HANDWRITTEN NOTES (Outerbridge), but he did. Preston is an under-rated marvel of the acoustic guitar. His name used to be mentioned in the same breath as Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges and judging from this tour de force solo album, it still should be. Reed uses many of the same two-handed techniques employed by Hedges, tapping his strings and banging on his instrument. He works a delirious combination of deft polyrhythms and melodic counterpoint that spins your head, yet, there's also a rustic folk edge to his playing that keeps it earthy. Preston comes to Echoes to talk about his twenty year career and continuing evolution.

Friday February 2, 2001
Chinese composer Tan Dun and cellist Yo-Yo Ma united for one of the unique and acclaimed film score for CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN dragon. We talk to both artists about the challenges of making a cross-cultural, east-west score and a music that emerges as much from western Chinese shamanism as European classicism. Yo-Yo Ma and percussionist David Cossins also play music live from the score.
