After Windham Hill---go to Imaginary Roads

"This is the only seasonal release I am aware of from Imaginary Roads. After Windham Hill was sold, William Ackerman emerged with a new winter compilation on a new label--Imaginary Roads. Here you will find some of the tried and true musicians previously available on many of the Windham Hill "Winter Solstice" series of releases. There is a big difference, though--I really believe that they saved the best seasonal recordings for this CD, "On a Winter's Night". Being a seasonal CD for winter doesn't necessarily mean that the focus should be on religious music. A winter landscape is unique and the mood it brings is one of the defining traits of "living at latitudes". There is a beauty to winter which you will find throughout these selections. A quick read of the titles will give you an indication that this is not just a holiday music CD, but a celebration of the winter season. In particular I like the selections by Tim Story and Val Gardena. I received this CD last year and featured it throughout the winter on Public Radio in Alaska. Granted, we have a lot more winter up here than most of your in the Lower 48, but we can all share the landscape by listening to this music."
Winter Solstice in Another Venue

"If you have enjoyed the Winter Solstice collections from Windham Hill, you will undoubtedly enjoy this collection as well. The style and format are very similar. Here too there is a mixture of some distinctly Christmas music with other songs, which, while not specifically holiday in nature, do evoke the feel of the season. This is a worthy acquisition."
