Soul Burst, the New Singing Bowls CD by Ron Esposito

It’s always a good thing when one of your friends finds some success in the music world, and I’m happy to report that lately singing-bowl artist Ron Esposito has done exactly that.

Recent TV shows on which Esposito’s recordings have been heard include Hawaii 5-0, Nashville, Touch, Common Law and Ray Donovan, and his music has also been heard on John Diliberto’s Echoes.

Meanwhile Esposito has continued to record new material, and his third CD, Soul Burst, should focus more attention on his unique talent. “The world is too much with us,” Wordsworth wrote, and if you agree with that, consider this a remedy. Quiet, dreamy and introspective, Soul Burst is a soothing blend of World and Indian music that includes sitar, tablas, bansuri, harmonium, and a mixture of brass bowls and quartz crystal singing bowls. Fans of ECM and Windham Hill will enjoy it, and it seems so appropriate for New World Bookshop that I think they should re-open it just to give it a spin. Singing Bowls is music you can meditate to, but you can also become fully immersed in the soundscape, as with Dark Side of the Moon.

You can hear clips from, and purchase, Soul Burst on the following link:

You can also purchase the CD locally at Shake-It Records and Everybody’s Records.

Ron gigs around town, and he picks some interesting venues, including the Contemporary Arts Center, where he performed with Johnny Rusza:
