Pianist Patrick Leonard has written hits for Madonna, including "Like A Prayer" and "Frozen" and produced albums for her and Jewel. But on his own, he creates an Americana chamber music heard on his debut album, RIVERS (Unitone).  RIVERS is a musical diary of a fly-fishing expedition in Wyoming and Montana. We talk with Patrick Leonard about his pianistic portraits and his intersection with high pop.

Wednesday October 25, 2000
In his Hollywood home, rock guitarist Steve Stevens pulls out his acoustic guitar, and, joined by a flamenco guitarist, percussionist and bassist, wails on music from his captivating album, FLAMENCO-A-GO-GO (Ark 21).  The co-composer of most of Billy Idol’s hits, Stevens shows a different side to his guitar playing, performing this music for the first time ever live, exclusively on Echoes.

Thursday October 26, 2000
The erhu is a two-stringed Chinese instrument played with a bow, but unlike the violin, erhu players move between the notes in haunting, voice like bends.  Jia Peng Fang is a master of this instrument and he’s bringing it into a modern instrumental world on his albums, RIVER and RAINBOW (Pacific Moon).  We talk to Jia Peng Fang about bringing this instrument into a trans-global setting.

Friday October 27, 2000
Jeff Pearce has been entrancing listeners with his textural,  ambient guitar orchestrations since his debut album, TENDERNESS & FATALITY (Windchime).  His collaborations include work with Jon Jenkins, Kevin Keller and Vidna Obmana.  Although he often sounds like multiple guitar players and a synthesizer, Jeff makes all of his music on one electric guitar, played in real time with no overdubs.  Through a sophisticated system of looping and sound processing, however, he transforms himself into an ambient orchestra.  Jeff Pearce comes to the Echoes studio to reveal the sonic architecture behind his music and latest album, TO THE SHORES OF HEAVEN (Hypnos).
