Product Description

On Kaleidoscope, in addition to BILL DOUGLAS' hybrid classical/jazz/electronic folk foundation and trademark melodic lyricism, he's gone all-out and added an array of gleaming highlights from Celtic, North African, West African, Indian, and South American music and instruments.

I will find out where she has gone
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
and walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.
-William Butler Yeats

Producer and former Nightnoise member BILLY OSKAY collaborated on pre-production for BILL DOUGLAS' Kaleidoscope, basic piano tracks on several tunes, and the arrangement for Voyage and declared Bill "a monster keyboard player." As a result you'll hear a lot more prominent piano work on this album.

Also new is the use of electric bass throughout in the agile, virtuoso hands of fellow Boulder musician DEAN PEER (who literally wrote the book on bass harmonics), and the solid-but-sensitive trap drumming of LARRY THOMPSON on several tunes. Other Denver-area musicians include classical symphony players BIL JACKSON on clarinet, DAVID LOCKINGTON on cello, ANNE STACKPOLE on flute, and ALEXA ZIRBEL on oboe.

GEOFF JOHNS returns to anchor Bill's hand drum section, with the addition of TY BURHOE on tabla and additional frame drums. And former Windham Hill and Celestial Harmonies vocalist THERESE SHROEDER-SHEKER contributes a radiant - verging on angelic - rendition of W.B.Yeats's famous poem "Song of the Wandering Aengus," here titled "Golden Apples of the Sun."

All in all, you'll find Kaleidoscope a scintillating twelve-course banquet for the ear.
