Ex-Pretenders drummer James Hood talks about his ambient persona, Moodswings and his new masterpiece, HORIZONTAL (Water Music). James Hood came to renown as a rock drummer, especially with The Pretenders. But the British-born musician began hearing a more expansive, electronic sound and started recording as Moodswings. In the early 90s he had a dance hit with the song, "Spiritual High," featuring vocals by The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde. Hood's new Moodswings album, HORIZONTAL, is a double CD excursion into deep ambient expanse with lush compositions, sweeping lyricism, including some haunting leads by pedal steel guitarist B.J. Cole and a pair of vocals from Julee Cruise. In his Los Angeles bedroom studio, James Hood gets horizontal and takes us on some moodswings.

In Oakland Hills in northern California, we enter the living room of Jeffrey Stott and get transported into another world where Bulgarian chants, middle eastern strings and global percussive grooves converge. Jeffrey's group is Lumin. Oud and yali-tambor player Jeffrey Stott, computer programmer Michael Emenau and singer Irina Mikhailova talk about their world fusion and affinity for global rave heard on their new CD, HADRA (Lumin Music).

From the days of vinyl LPs we unearth an ancient relic by Aircraft. They were a Bay Area modern instrumental group creating atmospheric arrangements of keyboards and electric violin. Among their members was keyboardist Doug McKeehan, who went on to be a member of Ancient Future. Aircraft released only one album, SO NEAR SO FAR on the defunct Catero label. In this Ancient Echo, we crank up the old turntable and hear this lost music form another time.

Friday 04/19/02
Ancient Future is the group that coined the term "world fusion" and from their debut album in the late 1970s through to their 1993 CD, ASIAN FUSION (Narada) they've been living by that credo. Although they haven't released a CD in nearly a decade, the group has been working on and has finally issued a new album, PLANET PASSION. With a new group that includes sitarist Habib Khan and singer Irina Mikhailova, Ancient Future continues to essay a cross-cultural sound. We gather the band in founder Matthew Montfort's home where they talk about the state of the World Fusion.
