about

This playlist travels through a range of music traditions, offering an aural feast for Living Music fans as well as a great introduction for new listeners to the label. Living Music founder Paul Winter, saxophonist, composer and explorer of the world's musical traditions, has created an award-winning body of work that transcends categories. Musical milestones are gathered here in a collection of 30 tracks from his Grammy Award-winning albums and from Living Music artists Pete Seeger, Nóirín Ní Riain, Oscar Castro-Neves, Eugene Friesen, Paul Halley, the Dmitri Pokrovsky Ensemble, Karan Casey, Davy Spillane and more..

"Saxophonist Paul Winter isn't the kind of artist you associate with 'greatest hits.' He has, however, won a few Grammies, been associated with some memorable compositions, and almost single-handedly launched the world chamber music movement, spawning the careers of Oregon, David Darling, Glen Velez, and many others. Over the course of his nearly 40 years of recordings, soprano saxophonist Paul Winter has explored a world of sound, literally. His group, the Paul Winter Consort, was created as an umbrella for Renaissance airs, jazz improvisation, Indian rhythms, and classical repertoire in an elegant, always melodic sound. … 'Greatest Hits' covers a career remarkable for its all- embracing scope. The sambas of guitarist Oscar Castro-Neves have been a favorite of the saxophonist, and he re-arranges the Winter Consort theme song, "Icarus," a la Brazil. The frame drumming of Glen Velez percolates through a couple of tunes from Canyon, and original Riverdance piper Davy Spillane guests on a pair of pieces from the Celtic Solstice album. Winter plays duets with wolves, Grand Canyon echoes, humpback whales, and Paul Halley's pipe organ. ... This is a great survey from one of the important musicians in modern instrumental music." --John Diliberto
