This milestone collaboration, recorded in Moscow and New York in 1987, was the first album of original music created by Americans and Russians together. The Paul Winter Consort's western harmonies and Afro-Brazilian rhythms floating over the ancient circle songs and village chants revitalized by the dynamic Dmitri Pokrovsky Singers make this into an energetic, reverberating layering of sound.
Original compositions by sax and pipe organ, based on melodies by the humpback whales themselves. Leonard Nimoy narrates from "Moby Dick" and the poetry of D. H. Lawrence, Gary Snyder and Roger Payne, giving voice with the same deep feeling for whales that inspired his story for the film STAR TREK IV.
Grammy Award Nominee
A rhythmic, joyous and contemporary celebration of the Earth in the form of the Mass, featuring the Consort with the voices of the wolf, whale, loon, and the choruses of New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. This ecological and ecumenical Earth Mass has become an annual tradition at the Cathedral each first Sunday of October.
Lyrical instrumental interpretations of bossa nova tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Marino Pinto, Carlos Lyra and others features "Winter's liquid soprano sax, Castro-Neves' rich chord voicings, and solid but supple backing from bassist Nilson Matta and drummer Paulo Braga. [...] A long-overdue collaboration between two gifted and well-traveled musicians."
