Land of the Bottom Line

John Gorka

Rock - Released January 1, 1990 | Windham Hill - Legacy

This is a long record filled with a full range of Gorka's romantic and story songs. He states his case as an outsider forced to meet the mainstream with the title cut and confronts his demons on "Raven in the Storm." More sentimental tracks are "The One That Got Away" and "Love Is Our Cross to Bear." "Mean Streak" is gritty and shows that Gorka can howl when he wants to. © Richard Meyer /TiVo

Playlist: The Very Best Of Jim Brickman

Jim Brickman

Pop - Released May 29, 2012 | Windham Hill - Legacy

Playlist: The Very Best of Jim Brickman collects 14 highlights from the prolific pianist/composer. Opening with his signature hit, "Valentine," with Martina McBride, Playlist offers up a nice balance of solo instrumental ("Angel Eyes," "Rocket to the Moon") and contemporary pop hits ("Simple Things," "Hear Me (Tears Into Wine)"), as well as collaborative efforts with Herb Alpert ("Rendezvous"), Dave Koz ("The Love I Found in You"), and Collin Raye ("Peace (Where the Heart Is)"). While it doesn’t compete with the sheer comprehensiveness of 2010's, two-disc Essential Jim Brickman, Playlist provides a clear road map for listeners looking for an entry point into the king of smooth age's impressive body of work. © James Christopher Monger /TiVo

Pure Michael Hedges

Michael Hedges

Classical - Released June 26, 2006 | Windham Hill - Legacy

Though nearly half of the 16 tracks on Pure Michael Hedges are found on another Windham Hill collection, Best of Michael Hedges, the album is still a nice overview of one of the late 20th century's most inventive acoustic guitar players. And as Hedges was predominantly a guitarist, and not a singer, most of the cuts are instrumentals, though the two vocal tracks that do make it on, "The Streamlined Man" (from 1985's Watching My Life Go By) and "I Carry Your Heart" (from 1990s Taproot, with help from Graham Nash and David Crosby), are probably the best examples of how Hedges sounded when he was singing his best. However, it's for the incredible guitar that most people listen to his music, and Pure Michael Hedges doesn't disappoint there at all. Popular pieces like "Bensusan" and "Because It's There" are both included, and are good representations of his unique, intricate style (it often sounds that there's more than one guitar playing, though there never is), and the two songs from the 1999 posthumous release, Torched, "Java Man" and "Ursa Major," show that his skill and innovation were still just developing before his untimely death. The bonus track, a cover of the Beatles "If I Needed Someone," which was originally on the Windham Hill tribute to the Fab Four, Here, There & Everywhere: The Songs of the Beatles, is a nice addition to the already well-rounded set. Perhaps Pure Michael Hedges is not as good as it predecessor, Best of Michael Hedges, but it's still a nice release for someone looking for a comprehensive introduction to the musician. © Marisa Brown /TiVo

Pure Liz Story

Liz Story

Classical - Released June 26, 2006 | Windham Hill - Legacy

Pure Liz Story bypasses piano great Story's late-career artistic wanderings in favor of doing exactly what the title promises: presenting her as an innovator who's most at home seated behind a piano bench alone. Tracks from all her best-loved discs surface here; the first three are from her stunning 1983 debut, Solid Colors, but the rest skip back and forth across her decades-long discography. Traditional songs -- Ellington's "I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)," Weill's "Mack the Knife" -- rub shoulders with original signatures such as "Toy Soldiers" (from Part of Fortune) and "Captain April" (from 17 Seconds to Anywhere), but the most pleasant surprise is saved for last. "Valse D'Amelie," from the film Amelie, is romance run through a well-worn keyboard. It's presented here as a bonus track. © Tammy La Gorce /TiVo

Pure Will Ackerman

Will Ackerman

New Age - Released May 23, 2006 | Windham Hill - Legacy

Windham Hill founder Will Ackerman has released many albums in his 30-year career as a guitarist, and the latest best-of record, Pure Will Ackerman, does its part to remind listeners of his contributions to instrumental and new age music. However, the same thing could probably be said about any of Ackerman's compilations (the previous one, 1993's Windham Hill Retrospective, shares seven songs with this one), so what makes this collection any better than any other of the numerous ones Ackerman has put out is uncertain. Yes, there is a previously unreleased version of "Murray's Song" -- though it's not that different from the one found on Childhood and Memory -- and tracks like "Pacific I" and "Briars Above the Well" do make their first compilation appearance on Pure Will Ackerman, but everything else is pretty much a repeat from records past. This does mean, however, that the album is indicative of all that the musician is and always has been. The songs are warm and mood-setting yet melancholy, and even those with vocals included ("Walk with Me" and the aforementioned "Briars Above the Well") provide atmospheric background rather than a definite, clear message. Pure Will Ackerman won't bring much of anything new to even a moderate fan, but for someone interested in exploring what the guitarist has done, it serves as a good start. © Marisa Brown /TiVo

Pure Tuck & Patti

Tuck & Patti

Pop/Rock - Released May 22, 2006 | Windham Hill - Legacy

The third album on Windham Hill from the husband-and-wife duo Tuck & Patti is yet another collection of some of the best songs from their extensive discography. Culling covers and originals from their 1988 debut, Tears of Joy, as well as from 1995's Learning How to Fly and 2000s Taking the Long Way Home, among others, Pure Tuck & Patti also includes a previously domestically unreleased cover of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven," complete with additional lyrics. For those unfamiliar with the duo's work, Pure Tuck & Patti is a good introduction to them. The songs represent their sound: subtle, descriptive, and delicate, with commanding guitar lines from Tuck Andress (two of the tracks, "Getaway" and "Body and Soul," are instrumentals, and really show the power of his playing) blended perfectly with Patti Cathcart's rich, expressive voice. The timbres of the two instruments practically melt into one another in Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" and Stevie Wonder's "If It's Magic." It's romantic, lush, sentimental music; a fitting release from Windham Hill and a nice overview of Tuck & Patti's career and sound, which seem to show no signs of changing as time passes. © Marisa Brown /TiVo

Pure Jim Brickman

Jim Brickman

Classical - Released May 22, 2006 | Windham Hill - Legacy

Contemporary instrumentalist Jim Brickman take on the new age genre is one of subtlety and gentle, lilting melody. The pianist, composer, and former commercial jingle writer's ten albums for Windham Hill have run the gamut from amorous soundtracks of affection (My Romance: An Evening with Jim Brickman) to children's songs (Disney Songbook). Pure Jim Brickman collects 18 tracks of melodious tranquility that flow together nicely, allowing room for both solo instrumentals and full band workouts to co-exist without ever stepping on each other's toes. Listeners who are new to the genre would do well in giving this fine collection a try. © James Christopher Monger /TiVo

Pure Nightnoise

Nightnoise

Classical - Released May 18, 2006 | Windham Hill - Legacy

Pure Nightnoise, part of Windham Hill/Legacy's thoughtfully assembled Pure series, is less a best-of than an exercise in elevated listening. Skipping through the Irish jazz outfit's discography from its 1984 debut, Nightnoise, to its sixth CD, A Different Shore, released in 1995; these 16 tracks preserve the most memorable moments from the Billy Oskay era while also pointing up Nightnoise's flair for versatility within a consistently melodic, contemplative soundscape -- check the chamber music-like "Fionnghuala" in comparison with the lullaby that is "Night in That Land." No selections from Nightnoise's 1997 disc, The White Horse Sessions, are included, presumably because its live recordings work against the Pure aesthetic. But the disc amounts to an even-handed distillation anyway; a disc to think by. © Tammy La Gorce /TiVo
