Album Description

In Memory of Ancient Future Flautist Randy Mead (November 5 1954 – August 5 2012) This third release by Ancient Future is a rich and varied album of contemporary world chamber music in which guest performances by Darol Anger and Alex De Grassi of Windham Hill fame augment the lyrical strains of cello, flute, scalloped fretboard and classical guitars, esraj, tabla, charango, bansuri, and recorder. "If this is new age music, then this movement has something to contribute after all. This contribution's a stunner. If you like an occasional musical bout with Oregon or Andreas Vollenweider, or if you simply believe that music should be beautiful and uplifting and rare, these guys are making your kind of music. And doing it delightfully." – Valley Star, Harlingen,Texas

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
