Waters of Eden (CD)

This CD is a departure for me in many ways. It's the first time I've featured my bass playing - mostly fretless and upright, sharing the lead voice in many of the pieces. But the main focus of the music is the compositions. Usually I like to write in a "collaborative" method, letting the other musicians react to my music and make up their parts - this time I planned the music from the beginning, and tried to get the best players to interpret each part I had in mind. It's less of a "progressive rock" album than my recent ones - it calls on my love of melody and mood. Best description of the music I've heard was from a radio d.j. (named Bear!) who reviewed the cd, calling it earthy melodic instrumental music, with roots in Classical and World.
