Synopsis

Album Description
Aromatic flavors of Spain and Islam commingle in Alhambra, soul-stirring music inspired by the fabulous palace that stands as a massive monument to the Moors of Africa and medieval invaders who ultimately brought their exotic richness to the southern plains of Iberia. The music of Jon Mark soars as high as the massive outer walls of the palace-fortress Alhambra, and sings as intricately as the elaborate mosaics that grace the inner walls. His melodies create the calm of the fountained courtyards and the clarity of the cloudless sky reflected in their pools. His impressions can be as delicate as a petal of a flower or as majestic as the Alhambra itself.On his synthesizer, Jon Mark brings alive the legends of the Alhambra, its walls echoing with the exotic sounds of Moorish Spain. The rhythms are undeniably Andalusian; the richness is undeniably Jon Mark - passionate, graceful and sweeping.

MAN THIS IS GREAT STUFF!!!!!!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been a listener of electronic/new age foryears, beginning with Tangerine Dream to the latest from Enya. While my #1 favorites ,other than classical, are probably Pink Floyd and the Beatles with some old 70's Black Sabbath thrown in, these cd's are the perfect ones for relaxing and unwinding at the end of a tough day. the lush synthesizer melodies are very well done and lyrical; it never sounds like it was played by some non-musical fool, or some madman. It all feels real well and cozy, like your old flannel shirt.Buy it; you won't be disappointed."
Amazing!

"I heard this cd a few years back during a massage session, and fell in love. I then started doing massage and wanted this for my collection but was unable to find it anywhere. I kept borrowing it from my (then) massage therapist, my chiropractor, etc, I've done so much work with this playing in the background. It's become a part of my work. I finally purchased the cd and have spent many hours enjoying it. It's an amazingly different cd. Very passionate and unique. I've never heard anything like it. I haven't experienced any other music by Jon Mark, but plan to in the future."

"This album can be used as background music for any kind of night reading session starting from Atlantis to Hannibal, The Huns and to the discovery of Francis Drake."
