1991: Celestial Harmonies 13085-2
On occasion I visit my parents, in Walla Walla; during a remarkable number of these visits I have had tastes of music of terrific quality which Ive then spent ages hunting for. Usually these are due to their local NPR station, thanks to which Ive added maybe a dozen albums to my collection after stopping midway through the living room upon hearing a little of the music and remaining motionless until the track was over so I could write down the artist/recording info and find a copy for myself when I got back to Seattle.
This was one of those albums, and the track was Ross Edwardss Marimba Dances. I also love Nigel Westlakes Omphalo Centric Lecture and Fabian Theory, and Martin Wesley-Smiths White Knight and Beaver is growing on me with repeated listenings.
