ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New age music with an emphasis on world fusion, serenity, artistic sensibility and a hint of improvisation and jazz. We like to work toward a harmonious cross cultural blend of richness, passion and growth. Perhaps people like Peter Gabriel, Paul Winter, Ravi Shankar come to mind as well as Bela Fleck, Vangelis and Miles Davis. We love the idea of collaboration with the finest musicians in the world such as David Hoffman (Trumpet soloist/arranger Ray Charles), the genius of India's premier bansuri flute player Pravin Godkhindi, Alp Akmaz from Turkey, Gary Green (Formerly with the UK band Gentle Giant) and others. Embracing serenity and wearing music like a warm comforting coat is how I would describe our approach. At a time when the earth seems to shrink and we come closer together, we need to embrace our differences in support during these challenging times.

From MainlyPiano
"Deeper Imaginings" is the follow-up to Paul Adams’ and Elizabeth Geyer’s award-winning 2015 album, "Imaginings." The earlier album debuted at #1 on the iTunes new age charts and was named the Zone Music Reporter’s Contemporary Instrumental Album of the Year (2015). A true “world music” album, "Deeper Imaginings" features artists and instruments from around the world. Paul Adams (guitar, electric sitar, oud, percussion, flutes, halusi, synth and poetry) is American and Geyer (flugelhorn, piano, vocals) is from Australia. The other artists on the album include Pravin Godkhindi (bansuri flute) in India; Alp Amaze (balaban) is from Turkey; Gary Green from the band Gentle Giant (guitar) is from the UK; and David Hoffman (trumpet) is an American based in Illinois. The eleven pieces on the album are all very soothing, peaceful and meditative. Two have poetic spoken words that are just a little bit louder than the accompanying music, making it easy to tune in and listen to the words or to tune them out you choose. The variety of musical instruments combine to create a sound that is eclectic while providing a reminder that music is, indeed, a language that can be universally understood.

I really like Paul Adams’ explanation of the way they approached the music: “What we love most is to create like a painter with free choice of color and hue. I was thrilled to be able to use some of the instruments I built in my life as a luthier. The guitars, dulcimer and electric sitars were blended with the natural genius of Elizabeth Geyer’s piano, flugelhorn and voice. Her ear is stunning in musical intuition and her training in jazz blended well with my rather improvised gentle folk approach, as well as training in ethnomusicology.”

"Deeper Imaginings" begins with “Endless Horizon,” a piece that includes Native flute, piano, voice (wordless), sitar, percussion and guitar. It sounds like an odd combination, but it works beautifully. “The Unfolding” has similar instrumentation but starts out much more ambient and atmospheric. As the piece opens up and evolves, a melody emerges while the piece remains very peaceful. “Acceptance” includes the sound of softly flowing water along with gentle ambient music - hypnotic! “All That I Am” begins with an interesting mix of instruments, rhythms (more of a jazz vibe), and spoken word (included in the liner notes of the CD). This is my favorite track on the album! “Evening” follows, enveloping the listener with cool, calming sounds to get lost in - gorgeous and SO relaxing! The last track, “Hope For the Game,” also includes spoken words and a jazzy instrumental backdrop. I really like this one, too, and its closing message: “We have hope for this game!”!

If the music on "Deeper Imaginings" doesn’t drain the stress right out of you, something might be amiss! Well done, Paul, Elizabeth and friends!

Deeper Imaginngs and Deeper Meanings In The Music
Paul Adams and Elizabeth have combined their talents once again to release Deeper Imaginings. In 2015 the incarnation of this meeting came out titled Imaginings.

Every recording artist intends to reach their audience in some way. Dependent on the genre it can be for various reasons. When it comes to any kind of new age music, I have the opportunity to hear, there is one main focus, to bring a sense of comfort and healing to their prospective audience.

These very talented musicians that I like to refer to as artisans, decided to create something with a little bit of everything in it to make it a very interesting journey. I think it takes the soul of a multi-talented artist to create a project like Deeper Imaginings. In this case, it took several individual's contributions to make this project work. This amazing combination of new age, jazz, and world, is ultimately a satisfying fusion of all three genres. This is where the deeper reference comes in, it started as imaginings and now it is much deeper and reflective.

“The Unfolding” is a rich blend of genres with a calming fluidness to give it that meditative atmosphere of healing and an aura of energy. It has a far east flavor to it which puts a smile in my heart. I added it to my NAMR Spotify Playlist where it should be, alongside all the other great tracks by an artist in the same community that I want to create awareness of.

“Hope For The Game” has an interesting spoken word addition to go along with the music, yet another “deeper” dive into what can be our imaginings as sentient beings visiting this planet. We are just visitors for our lifetime and the planet will remain, at least we have that hope. We have the hope of a “New Morning” while we inhabit mother earth, that will live to see its beauty for another day. This is my interpretation however I do believe the recording artists would like to know that all those tracks are felt positively by each listener. I don’t think that will be a problem with this recording.

The combination of instruments is quite fascinating and different than your typical new age release because of the jazz element injected by Elizabeth Geyer’s Flugelhorn. Then her piano also helps that taste of jazz and in retrospect gives each track an entirely different musical window to look through. But then again, every instrument that is included adds another dimension, layer, and or texture making it all a very unique and symbol of the diversity of talent afforded a listener throughout the run of the eleven tracks.

Paul brings a lot to the table as well with a guitar, sitar, Chinese halusi, percussion, oud, synth, and dobro. This is where the world sound comes in and adds the spice and variety to each composition. All the elements come together for an amazing final partnership within each track. The “Endless Horizon” of sound and color will keep each listener enchanted from beginning to end. I find music with this much diversity to have the word “world” in it for one reason, we are one world and one people having the desire to live and love. This is one reminder of that goal.

The Players Are:
Paul Adams: Guitar, sitar, chinese halusi, percussion, oud, synth, dobro
Elizabeth Geyer: Piano, flugelhorn, vocals
Pravin Godkhindi: Bansuri flute
David Hoffman: Trumpet
Gary Green: Guitar
Alp Akmaz: Balaban (Duduk)
