I don’t follow March Basketball Madness much, but I do like March Music Madness and it’s been a great month for music on Echoes beginning with our number one CD, In A Time Lapse by Ludovico Einaudi. It was our March CD of the Month. If Ludovico Einaudi represents the best of Ambient Chamber Music, then Sumner McKane represents the best of Ambient Americana this month with Select Visual History, another CD of
music that can best be described as Pink Floyd goes to Nashville. He’s been releasing beautiful albums for a decade now. Somebody sign this guy. And right behind him is our April CD of the Month, Ólafur Arnalds’ For Now I Am Winter. Again, one of the best Ambient Chamber Music albums of the year. Look for a review of it tomorrow.
