Gathering Light is a subtle and emotionally affecting jazz-world release from multi-reed man, composer, and education innovator Oran Etkin. Etkin intriguingly interweaves folk melodies and rhythms discovered on his recent concert tours in Indonesia, China, Japan, Israel and Europe, to create a patchwork of original compositions that takes the listener on a truly fascinating, international musical adventure.
