This is a collection of 5 songs Craig Pallet and I worked on together. In a similar vein to Craig's album 'Tantra' found here:
This collection is a true collaboration. We wanted do something together for a while and Craig had some songs he had previously started but not finished, so we used those as a starting point and sliced, diced, added, removed, morphed beyond recognition, etc.
This music is dedicated to Steve Kaplan (1958-2003), who played many of the original keyboard parts which were recorded as midi files for ‘Heart Essence’, ‘Zen Walk’, ‘Beyond Words’, and ‘The Point on the Wall’. Hearing those recorded performances brought back the memory and joy of working with Steve so long ago, and we were inspired to use the original Midi data recordings to create new orchestrations and arrangements for those songs.
Please listen to the tracks and let us know what you think!
