Wish I Were Here/and other journeys of the heart

by James Durst

Of the 13 songs (10 original), 11 were first performed live in the studio, then subtly and colorfully embellished; reminiscent of a late-night set in a hushed listening room; melodic, poetic, intensely lighthearted.
Genre: Folk: Modern Folk

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The album Wish I Were Here is fantastic. 'I Wish You Good Evening' had me in tears; the harmonica solo (Howard Levy) is just beautiful. Your writing, singing and guitar playing is beyond this planet, James. I don't meet many artists that blow me away, but you did in just 5 minutes."
--Joe Hesse, bassist, MSS Audio Services/Road Manager, Chick Corea Elektric Band

"Songs and performances that communicate effectively... A quiet gem"
--Folk Roots Magazine

"A colorful display of talented musicianship" --Crossroads

"A great album of highly original songs" --Heartsong Review

A 13-song, 55-minute collection unfolding like a live performance, beginning with the the personal invitation of Next to You and closing with the benedictional I Wish You Good Evening. Between them unfolds a vivid display of Durst's vision of a world where peace begins with functional relationships founded on individual empowerment and compassion. Melodic, poetic and lighthearted.
