    EARTHBEAT (LMUS 0015)
      |  ARTISTS  |  TRACKING  |   EARTHBEAT

    This milestone collaboration, recorded in Moscow and New York in 1987, was the first album of original music created by Americans and Russians together. The Consort's western harmonies and Afro-Brazilian rhythms floating over the ancient circle songs and village chants revitalized by the dynamic Russian singers make this into an energetic, reverberating layering of sound.

    "Paul's fusion of this 1,000-year old Russian ethnic choral tradition with the personal style of his group is a forceful statement of his belief in the oneness of our earth song." (DAVE BRUBECK)

    "For centuries, trained composers have tried rearranging fok music. In this ground-breaking album, Paul Winter does something that may set a new path - of juxtaposing and superimposing different idioms. It may raise eyebrows. I think it's great." (PETE SEEGER)
      "All melodious poets
      shall be hoarse as street ballads,
      when once the penetrating keynote
      of nature and spirit
      is sounded -
      the eath-beat, sea-beat, heart-beat,
      which make the tune
      to which the sun rolls,
      and the globule of blood
      and the sap of the trees."

      -Charles Ives,
      ESSAYS BEFORE A SONATA, 1916
