Captured live in concert at their inventive best - the unique world music fusion of The Rain Garden.
Recorded in atmospheric buildings, this is a stunning album of unique music blending world music from India, the Balkans, Africa and Celtic lands, jazz, minimalist and new music.
This album was recorded from many concerts in the 92 and 93 tours of The Rain Garden, and where they really developed their sound. As well as favourite classics which had been in the groups repetoire for quite a while, the group became increacingly interested in improvisation.
Also minimal music became increasingly important in in live performances - rather than all out free jazz, it became, on blending the various elements that made up the group, almost a means of instant composition.
Recorded in atmospheric venues such as ancient churches and deep wine vaults, this album captures The Rain Garden at their inventive best.
