My husband introduced me to Windham Hill Classics in the early 1990s. I was fascinated with a group of musicians that were interested in creating music instead of playing music created by long-dead masters. Also, it was during the Rap years. I couldn't stand Rap so I was looking for something new.
Harvest, a Windham album, is a group of musicians celebrating late summer/early fall. In the old days, (really old days), after the harvest folks would get together and party. It was a happy time. Although we like spring today, then spring meant planting and it also meant the end of starvation.
This album rests my soul and reminds me that our world today is rich. It is much easier to find food, clothing, and shelter. We live in abundance. We should be thankful of life...
Seriously, this music touches the dry soil of the heart and adds the water of creativity... and thankfulness.
