I have been a musician/guitarist since 1978… and I bought my first Will Ackerman/Windham Hill record in 1982. The name of the record was “Passage” and to this very day… remains my most favorite Will Ackerman release.
I’ll never forget the first time I place the needle on the grooves of this record… the sound of wonder and beauty filled the basement apartment I was living in at the time. My imagination ran wild with creativity and I started right then and there… dreaming of recording an album of instrumental guitar music… as beautiful as “Passage.”
Years have passed… many road miles later… endless packs of guitar strings have come and gone… and now I am in my 50′s… still dreaming and striving to record elegant, beautiful music!
I know one day… one day I will be able to complete my project with Will Ackerman… but now for now, I have the most amazing blessing of being included on “The Gathering!” Not only was my photo featured on the cover (a tree a few miles down the road from where I live here in South Dakota), but my song “Forever” was included as well!
What an amazing blessing to be apart of a wonderful, world class cast of artists! Album of the Year… what an amazing blessing!
This is something I will cherish for many, many… many years to come!
