Mark Isham and Art Lande - "We Begin" (ECM, 1987)

I can't get over that cover... I like to imagine this as the soundtrack for the choreographed dancing with silk scarves that happens on this otherwise deserted baseball field at twilight, each twilight...


Floating trumpets, electronic rhythms that sound like they came from the percussion bay of an 80's digital keyboard, swelling themes on ride cymbals that ride onto infinity... (stop me)

A taste:


(By the by, this is one long .wav file zipped to a .rar, I dled it originally as an .ape file, had no idea what that was, then converted it to .wav - so no breaks! Enjoy the ride)
