Album Notes
I created Windham Hill Records to release my first recording, “In Search of the Turtle’s Navel”, in 1976. My wildest dream at the time was to sell 300 copies of the LP; the minimum order the record pressing plant required.
That Windham Hill would grow to be one of the most successful independent record labels in history was light-years from anything I could have imagined.  Before long, I found myself the CEO of a large and growing record label with multiple offices around the country and our artists were playing sold out shows in the US, Europe and Japan.
I never envisioned Windham Hill as a corporation, but that’s eventually what we’d become.   The people working for the label were, without exception, bright and creative human beings who loved the music that defined us.   Our hearts were all in the right place.    But on a personal level I missed the simplicity and innocence of the early days and ultimately sold the label to people who I knew would respect what we had created and nurtured.
I took some time off from recording.  A few years passed without any new music from me, then in 2008 I was approached by Target stores to release CDs exclusively for them.  The CDs included earlier pieces of mine along with new compositions. This compilation includes what I think are the best of the new pieces I released post Windham Hill.  
It was fun putting these together on one CD and I hope you’ll enjoy this collection.
