For long time fans of New Age music, Windham Hill is often considered the grandfather label of the genre. It was Scott Cossu’s debut album “Wind Dance” which was one of the first ensemble recordings for the young label started a few years earlier by William Ackerman. The talented and thoughtful playing of Cossu breezes out jazzy pieces that are influenced by classical styles. He combines ethnic diversity to the acoustic songs blending his ethereal piano with guitar work by Alex de Grassi, cello playing from Dan Reiter, and percussion filling out the rhythm. One could ecstatically dance so easily to the polyrhythms heard on this sparkling recording. Windham Hill was well known for excellent quality recordings and pressings, with an ear toward audiophiles, and Wind Dance certainly meets those high standards. What better way to enjoy a cool breeze on the beach, you’ll be glad to have this in your Desert Island Collection.
