Joaquin Lievano waited nine years to fulfill the promise of his solo debut, One Mind, but Ecologie was worth the wait. Currently the guitarist with New Age band Zazen, Lievano has played with Yanni, Jean-Luc Ponty, and many other instrumental music stalwarts, but none of that prepares you for the gorgeous melodies in "Asia," "Himalayan Sunset," and "Rainforest Dance." Lievano's lyricism draws you into Ecologie, but it's his meticulous arrangements and the broad tonal palette he gets from his guitars that let you sink deeply into this music.
