ONE TURN ON THE AXIS
ONE TURN ON THE AXIS is a "Concept Album" that travels along with nature through
the 24 hours of a day. The idea for the album came to me after recording "Morning Song" and hearing the
words "A New Day Has Begun" in the melody. I decided to record a series of long improvisations about
the course that the world takes on its spin around the axis. It is (to me) a description of the "natural"
world around us, and of the way that that world feels during different times of the day. With its combination of
classical, jazz, and new age, it is an album for relaxing and letting the mind wander where it will.
