What is “The Santa Fe Sessions” not?
It is not a compilation of old recordings. It is not a “Best of……” album.
What is “The Santa Fe Sessions”?
The Santa Fe Sessions contain new recordings of ten compositions that first appeared in different form on albums released between 1990 and 1995 plus two new compositions. The new versions of older compositions were inspired by the songs themselves changing (improving?) over the course of performing them hundreds of times live. Most of them have grown new introductions, new appendages + new textures. I decided to capture some of this growth.
Note: This album is out-of-print, but we still have a few copies of the CD available from our store. The recording is no longer available anywhere else. Ottmar is re-mixing these songs for a possible re-release in 2009 or 2010.
Previews are high quality stereo, but limited to 2 minutes.
