about

GRAMMY AWARD NOMINEE

The Paul Winter Consort responds to the grandeur of the Grand Canyon during four rafting-recording expeditions down the 279-mile length of the Colorado River, improvising in the resonant acoustics of the side-canyons, grottoes and natural amphitheatres, interweaving their music with the voices of the residents of this 'studio in the earth'.

REVIEWS

"The eclectic instrumentation suggests the richness of the Canyon ecosystem. [...] A gem of a record such as we have come to expect from a master musician." (NEW DIMENSIONS)

"Winter came back [from the Grand Canyon] with music that does more than echo the footfalls of burro; he strikes near the feeling that comes from confronting the Canyon's immensity". (PHILADELPHIA ENQUIRER)
