Album Notes
The lead parts on this CD are played on an EWI (pronounced "eee-wee"), an abbreviation for "Electronic Wind Instrument". First invented by Nyle Steiner in 1975, the instrument is a synthesizer controlled by the players breath, teeth, and fingers, instead of a keyboard. The EWI that Jim Gordon plays here is an Akai EWI4000S. It has an 8-octave range, and holds 100 patches.

Great EWI music from an electronic music pioneer
I'm not an expert on electronic music but I am an EWI player so I was anxious to hear what Mr. Gordon did with my favorite instrument. If you're looking for typical AABA song forms, this is not the place. What Mr. Gordon does best on this CD is create a "soundscape" with electronic percussion elements, "pads", and judicious use of reverb, delay, panning, and other effects. Then the EWI takes you on a journey through this soundscape. There are surprises around every turn and you never know where you're going to end up but its a great journey. I wouldn't call this "ambient" as the music begs to be listened to carefully so as not to miss any of what's going on. It's not my usual genre, but I really enjoyed this CD.
