Connections 38th Anniversary Deluxe Edition
“The two founding fathers of New Age music” (Los Angeles Times) came together in 1984 and created a classic album, now poised to introduce a new generation to their masterpiece.” ( 4 Stars - Downbeat )
Drawing upon their own jazz and meditative roots, with no rehearsal, they tuned in to the magic of the moment. Five duets showcase their highly connected and intuitive interplay, especially on “Shared Secrets”.
Five tracks, especially “Tao Home Blues” and “Thigh Chi” add bass and world grooves that move the body as well as spirit.
GRAMMY® winner Paul Horn is featured on his golden flute, as well as alto and bass flute, Chinese flute and soprano sax. GRAMMY® nominee Steven Halpern plays grand piano, Fender Rhodes electric piano, ambient keyboards and trumpet.
“Fantasy Flight” is a breathtaking tour de force inspired by Paul’s recordings inside the Taj Mahal, Tibet and with Haida the killer whale. Entirely improvised in real time with the aid of his looping pedal, it is a timeless testament to his creative genius.
