1990 Grammy Nominee

In Celebration of the Earth

The recently-discovered basso-rumbles of the African elephant, the mimicry of the Australian lyrebird, a representative instrument and voice from each continent and the music of the Consort together with 18 guest artists are brought together in this celebration commissioned for the 20th anniversary of Earth Day and premiered in Times Square, New York. New compositions in tribute to the seven continents and oceans interweave the sounds of the wilderness musicians and the extended Paul Winter Consort in a far-reaching musical journey.

"The spirit of our living planet abides on this album. Using kaleidoscopic combinations of human and other animal voices ranging from the familiar to the exotic, Winter leads us into eight of Earth's critical environments, and brings us into contact with that spirit." (St. Louis Dispatch)

"A celebration of the diversity and spirit of life on earth [...]. The plethora of guest and ethnic instruments expand Winter's recorded vocabulary [...] This joyous amalgamation is remarkably well realized." (IT'S HIP!)
