Pianist Philip Aaberg plays live on Echoes. Philip Aaberg is a musician who inspires accolades from George Winston, Will Ackerman and Samite. He came to renown in the mid-1980s at the height of Windham Hill Records and made several albums for the label, including his critically acclaimed debut, HIGH PLAINS. Born in Montana, Aaberg evokes the endless horizons and small pleasures of the plains states with his melodically arresting solo piano compositions. His 2001 album, LIVE FROM MONTANA (Sweetgrass Music) was nominated for a Grammy Award. We capture Philip playing alone in a San Francisco Bay living room, performing music from across his career, including "Marias River Breakdown," heard recently on the score to PBS's ANSEL ADAMS.

"Ambient" is an adjective we toss around a lot on Echoes, but we've never applied it to the tuba until Tom Heasley's album, WHERE THE EARTH MEETS THE SKY (Hypnos). He's just released his second recording, ON THE SENSATIONS OF TONE (Innova). Heasley, who lives in Palo Alto, Ca, uses extensive electronic processing to turn his tuba into a pod of whales and a galactic transport ship in slow motion, languid soundscapes. It often sounds electronic, but every sound begins on the tuba. Heasley demonstrates his techniques on Echoes.

Thursday 05/09/02
Kodo is the world renowned Japanese Taiko drum ensemble that took the sacred drums out of the temples and onto the concert stage in wildy acrobatic performances. On a new album called MONDO HEAD (Red Ink), Kodo teams up with Grateful Dead/Planet Drum percussionist Mickey Hart to create a global percussion orchestra. Hart taps into the impressionistic side of Kodo, aligning them with master drummers like Zakir Hussain and Giovanni Hidalgo as well as the world fusion vocal group Vas. Ryutaro Kaneko of Kodo, and Mickey Hart talk about their percussion garden.

Friday 05/10/02
Richard Searles talks about ye olde music in the new age. Richard Searles is a classical guitarist creating a modern chamber music based in Renaissance era forms. Playing with harpsichords and tablas, he's been orchestrating a music that mixes equal parts of Renaissance Faire, Tolkienesque fantasies and chamber music designs since the 1980s. His latest album is THE GREEN MAN (Earthdance). We visit Richard Searles in his studio outside of Los Angeles where he takes a journey to the past.
