ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music on this recording was born in a divinely inspired meeting of two musicians and an eclectic combination of instruments. We had only just met a few weeks before these recordings were made- at an art fair under the banyan tree. There were no rehearsals or written music to follow; somehow the music just flowed forth, as if the planets were in perfect alignment. We watched and listened to each other. And that was all. It just came out. It was like musical magic and we’re grateful for the fact that this incredible weekend was captured so you may now enjoy it whenever you want a peaceful change of energy- at any time, no matter where you may be. We hope you will enjoy the music as much as we enjoyed making it. Now, come join us under the banyan tree. With warmest island regards from Lance & Michael

BIO
One of the instrument's earliest pioneers and one of Emmett Chapman's first students, Michael is a Chapman Stick virtuoso with 38 years experience. Played with both hands using a pianistic technique on a stringed instrument, the Chapman Stick is unique, versatile and probably the most expressive musical instrument ever devised. The result is music that sounds unlike any other instrument.

Devoted to spreading Knowledge of the Chapman Stick, Michael has performed at over a thousand festivals, fairs & corporate events combined. Carlos Santana said his music is "a gift from the heart". He's been an opening act for The Beach Boys and has introduced many to the new instrument including Mick Fleetwood, Herbie Hancock, Keith Emerson, Steve Morse and others.

His albums and music have spread worldwide and he's shared his talents with well over a million people in the last decade. His music has been featured on national radio, television appearances and a short documentary. His musical style encompasses light jazz, classic rock, latin, Hawaiian and other influences. With a catalog of 19 releases he is the most prolific Chapman Stick recording artist to date.

Love the album!
Love the album, the solos are some of the most impressive pieces I’ve heard for some time. So glad I discovered it!

We never get tired of it.
A house concert by our pool sounds like a lovely idea on a Sacramento evening. Would you consider a detour to my classroom as well? I play "Under the Banyan Tree" everyday of the school year. We never get tired of it. My young students would be pretty impressed with a live version!!

Beautiful Music

An Abosolutely Outstanding Musician
This review is for Michael K as a musician, rather than for a specific album. I am a musician/bandleaer/booking agent myself, and I have known and played with Michael for over 15 years. He is a wonderful talent who plays with an open heart. You can feel his presence when listening to his music, and now that he is living in Hawaii, the beauty and heart come out even more. His musicianship is first class, and when listening to any of his tracks, you know that you are in the presence of someone very special. I highly recommend any of his albums or live performances, and that he plays the Chapman Stick is even more amazing!
