In 1984, Tom Barabas and Dean Evenson met and played music for the first time at a consciousness-raising workshop in Tucson, Arizona. They recognized that they had a similar style of relating to music, composing and co-creating in the moment. They shared a spiritual connection to music which they felt flowed through them from a transcendental source.With Tom playing grand piano, and Dean on silver flute, a musical partnership evolved which has resulted in many concerts and popular recordings, (Soaring, WindDancer, Instruments of Peace). Their long musical friendship continues on Back To The Garden, expressing their musical souls together.Richard Hardy, former horn man for Carole King and Eliza Gilkyson, joins them on this album, gracing many songs with his seductive saxophone melodies and haunting clarinet and alto flute. Not only is Richard an outstanding musician, but a new friend and partner in the Soundings family. Length: 55 minutes.
