The original version of Alegria Arabe can be found on the album Opium. Actually, I recorded two versions of this song for the album… I wonder where the other version, the one that didn’t make it onto the 1996 CD, might be. I will look when I get home.
This is a live recording, straight stereo from the board to a CD recorder, from August 2007. The band was: OL Jon Gagan Stephen Duros Davo Bryant

The Scent of Light-Echoes August CD of the Month The music on The Scent of Light builds slowly, each piece carving out a contemplative space until before you know it, the dynamic has completely changed. A centerpiece of the album is â€œSilence, No More Longing.â€ Itâ€™s an 11 minute excursion that builds from solo guitar, to multi-tracked guitars adding ambient electronics, bass, percussion, and finally unleashing a quiet electric storm from guitarist Stephen Duros.
John Diliberto takes a look at “Scent of Light” against my whole body of work.
You can read the whole piece here and listen to an audio version here. I love the ending of the audio-version!!
