Shadowfax 25//1991

Review

Shadowfax paved the way for many of today's popular world music groups. Beyond their basic instrumentation of lyricon, guitar, violin, bass and drums, there was always a wondrous variety of percussion instruments, usually indigenous to the various cultures that the music attempted to imply. Their latest release is a carefully considered best-of, with three cuts from each of their four Windham Hill releases, in chronological order, and it spans their full range of styles, from fusion/electric to off-center vocal pieces (like the title cut) to cross-rhythmic multi-cultural rave-ups. Musically, Chuck Greenberg's sterling lyricon playing always seems to stand out, and the successive violinists were often brilliant as well. Guitarist G.E. Stinson contributed the more unusual compositions, and captured a comfortable niche in each song with his instrumental prowess. From all we can tell, the music of Shadowfax is going to keep "comin' around" for years to come. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats
