Monday 12/17/01
Michael Jon Fink comes from the California school of minimalism which tends to be a bit cerebral and understated. On his album, I HEAR IT IN THE RAIN (Cold Blue), he gathers small chamber ensembles that waxes impressionistic airs, conjuring up Tibetan monks and time slipping away. We talk with Michael as well as his cohorts, guitarist Rick Cox, clarinetist Marty Walker and pianist Bryan Pezzone about the music between the notes.

Tuesday 12/18/01
Jane Siberry has always been the Thomas Pynchon of singer/songwriters, spinning out convoluted tales rife with esoteric references, but dipping at the edges of modern culture. She has consistently defined conventional song-structure, turning her uncanny voice around stream-of-consciousness digressions and side-long glances and unique arrangements. Her latest album is a collection of collaborations called CITY (Sheeba Records) that includes her work with Hector Zazou and Barney, the purple dinosaur. Jane Siberry comes to the Echoes living to sing her songs, accompanied only by electric guitar and electric keyboard.

Wednesday 12/19/01
Vangelis is an icon of synthesizer music. His 1970s albums, HEAVEN & HELL and ALBEDO 0.39 were space music classics. His score to the 1981 film, CHARIOTS OF FIRE was the first ever electronic film score to win an academy award. Vangelis rarely gives interviews, but in Greece, we captured him while he recording the PBS concert film in the Temple of Zeus for his album, MYTHODEA (Sony Classical). Vangelis talks about his classical music opus and his method of spontaneous composition.

Friday 12/21/01
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 Winter Solstice and Celtic Christmas CDs.
