Hemispheres [Bonus Track]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Since the advent of adult contemporary music, no single release defines the genre's sugary joys better than Dan Siegel's 1987 classic Northern Nights. Gems like "Rhapsody" pretty much set the tone for what instrumental pop music and contemporary jazz are all about, and still get airplay on the diet jazz stations years later. Siegel, who started doing this type of music long before it was en vogue circa 1980, has felt somewhat constrained by all the expectations. Over the years, he's grown disillusioned with the limits of the adult contemporary format, and has longed to expand beyond the fluff and into some true exotica. The result is Hemispheres, one of his most ...

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Since the advent of adult contemporary music, no single release defines the genre's sugary joys better than Dan Siegel's 1987 classic Northern Nights. Gems like "Rhapsody" pretty much set the tone for what instrumental pop music and contemporary jazz are all about, and still get airplay on the diet jazz stations years later. Siegel, who started doing this type of music long before it was en vogue circa 1980, has felt somewhat constrained by all the expectations. Over the years, he's grown disillusioned with the limits of the adult contemporary format, and has longed to expand beyond the fluff and into some true exotica. The result is Hemispheres, one of his most original and intriguing discs. A smorgasbord of world music sounds, beats, and textures, the collection allows the composer to keep a lower profile on the keyboard and keep the focus on some very unique all-star instrumental collaborations, including the title cut's violin Charlie Bisharat, koto Osamu Kitajima, Sitar, and shakuhachi. The smooth, tropical "Homeland" features steel pan Andy Narell, banjo Béla Fleck, and harmonica. Dori Caymmi's sitar, Peter White's accordion, Rick Braun's trumpet, Boney James' sax, and the koto combine on the hypnotic "Ancient Footsteps." "Stix & Stones" finds Siegel in a percussive groove under Narell, Fleck, and Bisharat. There's also an explosive acoustic-meets-electric-string-fusion with Richard Smith, Ottmar Liebert, and a mandolin; and finally, a flute and bagpipe extravaganza. And that doesn't even cover the pleasant vocal track, sung by Kelly Coleman. [The album's bonus track edition included "Rainbow Sky," with vocals by Terri Nunn.]
