ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Paul Horn is the ultimate world musician, a sound traveler without peer.

By 1989, when Paul Horn recorded Brazilian Images, people were beginning to realize that he was no longer ahead of his time. In the 1960’s Horn began a quixotic musical journey that opened a whole world of places and people to him. He spent the 1970s and 80s playing in some of the worlds great sacred spaces, and collaborating with musicians from many traditions. As far back as the 60s he unwittingly anticipated the ‘World Music’ and ‘New Age’ trends; during the next two decades, he helped to define them. By the time he made this album at the dawn of yet another decade, the times had pretty well caught up to him.

“I love Brazil,’ says Horn, “even as a child. When I first had the opportunity to go there in 1970, I knew why. The atmosphere is charged with music, dance, sunshine and beautiful women. Paradise. It is also a country of paradoxes. From some of the worst slums of the world, the Favelas, comes the happiest music in the world, the samba.

On a tour of Brazil in 1990 with guitarist Andre Geraissati, “I found the gentler side of Brazil through his writing and the unique voices he uses. We recorded this album in Sao Paulo at the completion of our tour.”

His Brazilian music is among his most beautiful; and Brazilian Images, a collaboration with guitarist Andre Geraissati and percussionists Airto Moreira and Joao Parabyba, is music of unusual lushness and intimacy.

This remarkable work has been remasterd and includes new notes.

Brazilian Images
This music is introspective, Brazilian influenced, complex, powerful, and quite demands listening.
