Dan Willard

A Masterpiece
I've had the pleasure of listening to Dowhower's compositions since 1985. With this series of recordings I feel he has really hit his stride. The pieces have depth, there are some really novel soundscapes, and the production is top-notch. From heavy metal and jazz fusion to space music and Stravinsky-esque classical this collection has something for everyone.
