Echoes Playlist

Week of 12/18-22/00


Monday December 18, 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.

Tuesday December 19, 2000
Kate Price brings her magical, sometimes mystical music into the Echoes Living room with an all-star cast of musicians.  Among them, Oregon reed player Paul McCandless, Ancient Future percussionist Ian Dogole, Rasa's Hans Christian on sarangi and nyckelharpe and Teja Bell on guitars.  They all join Kate and her hammered dulcimer for a vibrant performance of music drawn from her latest CD, The Isle of Dreaming.

Thursday December 21, 2000
Echoes greets the longest night of the year with a Winter's Solstice Celebration.  With not a carol in earshot, we paint a winter's landscape in sound, pristine and serene. Includes music from the new Windham Hill SIMPLE GIFTS CD.

Friday December 22, 2000
Every year on Sonic Seasonings we travel to living rooms around the country.  This year, Sonic Seasonings heads to the Pacific Northwest for the Celtic sounds of Jeff Johnson & Brian Dunning, and the environmental ambiences of Dean & Dudley Evenson.  We venture to Oakland for an exquisite performance of the Ira Stein Trio with guest, singer Irina Mikhailova, and we drift out into a living room in space with Atlanta synthesist Jonn Serrie. Sonic Seasonings 2000 capturing both the spirit and the mood of the holiday season.
