"Twenty years of Discovery" - Nicholas Gunn with thirteen tracks from his best selling albums plus two unreleased bonus tracks.
Once in a while a rare talent emerges in the competitive arena of contemporary instrumental music. Recording artist Nicholas Gunn has planted himself firmly in the forefront of remarkable talent. Nicholas Gunn's formal training was as a student of the Royal School of Music in Rochester, England, Gunn's birthplace. It was there that he studied the flute and learned basic theory and music appreciation. When Gunn moved to Southern California, he began writing, producing and performing his own material from his at-home, state-of-the-art production facility.

Many try, but few artists create music so rife with imagery that you are transported to an entirely fresh geographical plane. No one tours the Southwest like Nicholas Gunn, the flute/synth whiz whose The Music of the Grand Canyon was the most compelling tribute to the park in recent years. With this release, he finds himself at a new Crossroads, which for all intents and purposes is best described as the rocky but clear-skied region around the Four Corners. His spiritual excursion again draws on Native American history to build percussive red rock themes around crisp Southwestern architecture that can withstand both intense sunlight and heavy thunderstorms. Gunn's flute is always at the forefront, played either like a percussion instrument or a launching point for soaring orchestral ideas…
"Return to Grand Canyon" is the sequel to Nicholas Gunn's breakthrough 1995 hit "The Music of the Grand Canyon" which peaked at #10, spending 32 weeks on the Billboard New Age Chart. This recording is centered around Gunn's flute, keyboard and percussion and features guest performances by acoustic guitarist Govi, violinist Karen Briggs, cellist Sachi Patitucci with wife and fellow artist Cheryl Gunn.
This 1999 release precedes the excellent new recording from perennial prog-rockers King Crimson, titled The ConstruKction of Light. Yet with The Repercussions of Angelic Behavior, electric guitarist and Crimson founder Robert Fripp, touch bassist Trey Gunn and hard hitting drummer Bill Rieflin mesh gears for some truly energetic interplay! Spearheaded by Fripp’s signature style attack consisting of loops, EFX, and sinuous lead soloing along with a keen (if not legendary) sense of the dynamic, the trio pursues booming, driving rhythms and abstract themes amid fiery improvisation and otherworldly effects. Throughout, touch bassist Trey Gunn displays the synergy and intuitiveness exhibited on recent collaborations with Fripp in King Crimson and elsewhere.
Contemporaries of the Beatles, along with other Liverpudlian rockers like Gerry & the Pacemakers and Rory Storm & the Hurricanes, the Remo Four were lost to the darkest corners of Merseybeat history, with only See for Miles' 1992 compilation The Best of Tommy Quickly, Johnny Sandon, Gregory Phillips & the Remo Four – a disc featuring singers the group backed, along with a handful of their tracks – being the only reissue to surface until Bear Family's 2010 Smile!, Peter Gunn…And More. Only one of the songs on that 1992 disc – a cover of “Peter Gunn” – is on this 2010 CD, which contains the entirety of their 1967 LP Smile!, released only in Germany, and singles surrounding the album.
Classically trained, and with a reputation as one of the world's best selling flutists, Nicholas Gunn is in the upper echelon of contemporary instrumentalists. Having released over thirteen solo projects and selling over two million copies he is a double platinum artist. His music can best be described as a fusion of Native American and ambient/world music. He masterfully employs the guitar, piano, and percussion and infuses his beloved flute and other wind instruments extensively in most of his songs. Beautifully rhythmic, it deeply touches the heart, mind, and soul. Longing, nostalgia, and sentimentality are triggered by Gunn’s passion and respect for Native Americans and a purer and simpler way of life.
