Only Trust Your Heart is Diana's critically acclaimed debut on the GRP label and marks her first collaboration with GRAMMY-winning producer Tommy LiPuma.

(from the liner notes) Diana Krall recalls her first conversation with the great composer/arranger, Johnny Mandel, she told him that she was both a singer and a pianist. Mr. Mandel replied, "Oh, so you're a hyphenate! Are you a singer-pianist or a painist-singer?" Diana the singer needs Diana the pianist as an accompianist; but Diana the pianist wants to play. And they're both...I mean, she's both...that is, Diana Krall is an extraordinary new artist whether singing or plating or...both!

Live recordings of this intercultural ensemble consisting of the Sagami Traditional Music Trio and the Ron Hadley Quintet.

The Eloquent Fish Ensemble -- This unique ensemble came into being in Tokyo in the spring of 1990 when shakuhachi virtuoso Toshiya Mizukawa and jazz pianist Ron Hadley organized the group to perform Mr. Hadley's compositions and to continue intercultural projects on which they had been collaborating since the summer of 1989. The ensemble is an amalgamation of the Sagami Traditional Music Trio (koto, shamisen and shakuhachi) and the Ron Hadley Quintet (piano, bass, drums saxophones and voice). In addition to presenting original compositions and arrangements of traditional pieces, ensemble members perform authentic Hogaku as well as material drawn from the standard jazz repertoire. Workshops and lecture/demonstrations dealing with the two fields of Japanese music and jazz (as well as how these fields might be combined) are an important part of the group's schedule.

(All songs--except Kuro Kami, which is from the traditional Nagauta repertoire--are Copyright 1990 by Ron Hadley)

Personnel: Toshiya Mizukawa: shakuhachi; Mieko Noguchi: shamisen, kotsuzumi & voice; Nahoko Ohata: koto; Ron Hadley: piano & keyboards; Gail Heavilin: voice; Jim Cameron: saxophones; Bob Neale: bass; Ray Brunelle: drums & sound samples

Eric Benson Close the Door

Recently, one of Eric's songs from this CD was picked up by Neil Young  and put on his website "Living With War Today". It's called "Writings of Holy Men".

Shortly after its release in 1997, Eric Benson’s first CD “Close the Door”, gained accolades from veterans in the music world, and received airplay on FM, college radio and AM stations here in BC, and on budding internet radio stations and music sites worldwide. The “Door” is actually a window into the soul of this gifted artist. Eric is known for his ability to put pure emotions onto paper, and capture an audience within the songs striking melodies, and his soothing vocals. He has shared the stage with music icons Amanda Marshall, Ian Tyson, Juice Newton, Valdy, Queen of slide guitars Ellen McIllwain, and Roy Clark, to name a few.

Now, come and experience Eric’s latest mix of truly heartfelt and stirring songs on the “Eric Benson and Urban Legend White Horse” album. Released to an audience of over 200 who braved the only snowstorm of the year in Campbell River to hear not only the new songs, but also the music of his new band, “Urban Legend”. With the sultry vocals of Cathy Kalyniuk on harmony and taking the lead in some songs, and the smooth angelic vocals of back up singer Johanne Abbis, each of Eric’s songs was and continues to be showstoppers. From the medieval settings of both “The Rain God” and “White Horse”, the incredibly beautiful love ballads, “More” and “Just One More Time”, to the haunting reflections of “Angel in Mid Flight”, you will want to play this CD over and over again. Eric’s first appearance in Nanaimo at the Lighthouse Pub Songwriter’s Circle in May was nothing short of electric, and everyone waiting for his return.

Valdy meet Gary Fjellgaard; Gary Fjellgaard, this is ValdyOf Course, introductions are unnecessary - these two guys have known each other far too long for any kind of formality. Now, with their first album together, Contenders, on the leading Canadian roots music record label, Stony Plain - and a national tour underway, they make the most logical duo in Canadian music.Consider, if you will, what they share. They\'re both family men. They both live on small islands off the coast of British Columbia. They\'re both singer-songwriters with an eye for memorable tunes and finely-honed images. They\'re both road warriors who tour, and tour, and tour.They\'re both committed Canadians, and, more particularly, committed Western Canadians. And their music draws on all the aspects of life in the west. \"Western roots\" they call it. It\'s music that, in every note, echoes the mountains and the sea, the cowboys and the fishermen, the oil well roustabouts and the loggers, the sunsets and the rain, the streak of rugged independence and contrariness that so many display, and the generosity and warmth that make Westerners so welcoming to all. Valdy, born Valdemar Horsdal in Ottawa, has been part of the fabric of Canadian pop and folk music for years. A man with a thousand friends, from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island, he\'s a songwriter who catches the small but telling moments that make up life.Still remembered for Play Me a Rock and Roll Song, his bitter-sweet memory of finding himself, a relaxed and amiable story-teller, facing a rambunctious audience at a rock festival, Valdy has sold almost half a million copies of his 13 albums, and has two Juno Awards (a total of seven Juno nominations), and four Gold albums to his credit.Along the way, he\'s taken his music to a dozen different countries, from Denmark to Australia, been an invited performer for five years in a row at the prestigious Kerrville Festival in Texas, and even played a lead role in an episode of The Beachcombers.Today, he\'s based on Salt Spring Island, where he lives with his wife, three dogs and a cat (the three grown-up \"kids\" are all now living in other parts of British Columbia). Gary Fjellgaard has been described as a \"national treasure\" and one writer summed up his music this way: \"It is so rich that his art is free of bitterness, whining, self-pity, and manufactured pathos. He is the poet of the extravagantly good side of the human spirit; breathtakingly humane and compassionate.\"Like Valdy, Fjellgaard came to the Gulf Islands (he lives with his wife on Gabriola Island) well into his 25-year career. The island’s peaceful calm (not to mention the view from his living room window) makes it hard for him, sometimes, to leave. It is not only a haven from the road, and a different geography than the one he knew growing up in Saskatchewan, but a place to write the sort of songs that lovingly recall the past, take an affectionate view of the present and look optimistically into the future.He has a stubborn streak, which is why he\'s never changed his Norwegian name so people who don\'t know him could spell and pronounce it properly; now nearly everyone knows it\'s pronounced Fell-Gard. As a songwriter, he\'s a storyteller - and the stories he tells come from his two decades in the logging industry, his annual stints as a trail-riding cowboy, and his travels back and forth across Canada.His reputation has been earned in the country music field, and if his songs bear little resemblance to the \"hot new country\" that fills the airwaves today, he has had more than his share of successes - and has a shelf-full of awards to prove it. Together, Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard are a near-perfect team. The songs they\'ve written for Contenders touch their common ground with the familiarity and warmth only old friends can share. They are both experienced entertainers who know how to earn the respect of their audiences, and deliver shows, night after night, that send people home with smiles and the feeling that they\'ve experienced something special and heartwarming.The pair are in the midst of a national tour to support Contenders, and to bring the songs to audiences across the country. No spotlights. No stacks of heavy-duty speakers and power amplifiers. No all-star backup band. Just two guys, two guitars, and two dozen songs or more that tell where they\'ve been, where they are and where they\'re going.

A new decade really needs the old verities more than ever before, and these contenders prove the point.
