Kit Watkins, maestro of both the progressive and ambient genres, has generated musical splendor spanning five decades. His sonic landscapes have shown a mastery of percussion, woodwinds, synthesizers, and a host of other-worldly instruments. For his 30th official studio album, Field of View, Kit has imbued almost every new air with the magic of his own voice. In lyrical form and as a textural blanket, his vocals help the listener ascend to enjoy endlessly evocative views. Three additional minstrels, Forrest Young, Bill Smith, and Greg Moreau each give an exhilarating new energy to key tracks. From these ingots of glowing metal, Kit has forged an accessible yet deeply hypnotic musical adventure for listeners. Hearken to these Views... Behold the Field of possibilities therein, and this album will transport you, again and again.
