The philosopher Joseph Campbell wrote extensively about "following one's bliss." These influential writings form the conceptual basis for Bliss Station, the 13th album of original music by Toronto-based guitarist and composer Eric St-Laurent.
Taylor Ho Bynum's latest release brings together some of the best current players on the circuit to create an album which is both accessible and eccentric in equal measure.
Logan Strosahl is a restless polymath, drawing deeply upon 16th and 17th century classical, contemporary music, international folk forms and jazz. His new trio album brings his considerable skills as a winds player to the fore.
There is also a selection of music featuring Daniel Carter and Silvia Bolognesi and other recent releases.
