  A retrospective album which includes favorites from earlier recordings, while introducing I'lana Cotton's latest improvisation material. Using inspiration from visual and poetic arts, as well as from a longtime affinity for dance and movement, these "Songs for the Journey" are also a unique culmination of a lifetime of listening to, studying and performing music from many traditions. The result is a refreshing, expressive and effortless blending of Western harmonies and structures, with Indian raga, Javanese scales, and other modal languages. Driving, glistening, thoughtful, whimiscal, powerful, quiet. A Journey filled with journeys!
