1999 All Music Guide Pick: "Best of Artist"
1999 AFIM Indie Award nominee
Politics, religion, intrigue, mystery, love, and even sexy Bible stories —another passionate mix from French horn virtuoso/composer Tom Varner. Features Chick Corea's angular altoist Steve Wilson, bassist Cameron Brown (Joe Lovano's current bassist and veteran of the Don Pullen-George Adams Quartet), and violinist Mark Feldman in a mini "chamber" spotlight. As Mojo magazine says, Tom Varner is one of "the most enlightened performers in New York jazz."
