kipmil10s Paul, At an Oregon performance in Champaign-Urbana (Univ of IL) circa 1975ish I yelled out "All the Mornings Bring" as a request. Your reply...."Thanks Mom!" "All the Mornings Bring" from the Icarus album was when I became an instant fan of oboe, English horn and Paul McCandless as a player and composer. Just wanted to let you know how much joy your music has brought me from the late 60s to the present! It has been great food for my soul. Thank you so much Paul! Favorite track: All the Mornings Bring.

A Retrospective Celebrating 45 Years of Genre-Bending Iconic Mastery

Morning Sun: Adventures with Oboe – Paul McCandless with the Paul Winter Consort, A Retrospective is dedicated to McCandless’ fellow oboist, the late Sir George Martin, the famed producer of albums by the Beatles, as well as the Paul Winter Consort’s album, Icarus. In his autobiography, Playback, Martin gave the Consort the accolade of a lifetime, referring to Icarus as “the finest record I have ever made.”

Accompanying the album is a 32-page booklet containing an engaging chronicle by Paul Winter that presents a first-person account of the Paul Winter Consort’s history and the memorable times Winter has shared with Paul McCandless through the years, as well as notes on each track and selected photos.

Notes Paul Winter, “With this anthology, I set out to gather a treasury of Paul McCandless’ masterful playing and found that it also became, quite unintentionally, a retrospective of the Consort – the most extensive yet done. Listening through the entire album, I am thrilled with every note.”
