Synopsis

Album Description
As an independent label, we've worked hard to develop a distinctive sound ? part-folk, part-classical, all-acoustic instrumental music. We feel our music is indeed unique, and we've never compromised in our determination to produce only the highest quality, most beautifully packaged recordings. Gourd has licensed music to Warner Bros. Music, Narada, Hearts of Space, Windham Hill, The Disney Channel, A&E and The History Channel. Selections from the Gourd recording The World Turned Upside Down were featured on the Ken Burns documentary Thomas Jefferson. Three Gourd recordings were featured on Ken Burns? latest project ( a documentary on Susan B. Anthony & Elizabeth Cady Stanton) on PBS.

CD Reviews

Darn you....go and ruin my rep like that...
Darren McDonald | Arcadia, CA USA | 06/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yikes! I don't generally *LIKE* instrumental music [or even tolerate?]. Too sappy, too happy. Too cold, sterile, impersonal. Too "is this fluorescent light giving you a migraine?" Too perfectionistic...too manipulative...too "in lack of emotion, just add strings" mock emotional pie...What happened? Why is this different? Simply....it's good. Very, very, very good. I bought this CD for my father...now I need to go and get another one. It's worth the money."
Truly inspiring!

"A musician friend of mine gave me a copy of this years ago when I bought my dulcimer with the intent of inspiring me! It did just that! The instrumentation is outstanding. A little bit of western, blue grass, celtic -- one moment you're picturing Maverick riding over the countryside, the next minute you're swept away to a Renaissance moment. Each song is vastly different from the others -- exciting, yet soothing -- and all with a distinctly Oktober feel. I play it constantly in my car. I'm so afraid the tape will wear out, I'm buying the CD!"
