During his boyhood in Europe, Hart's ear developed around Gregorian chant, classical, and Irish music. Later, in America, blues, jazz, rock, country, bluegrass, and other indigenous styles melded into his musical vocabulary as he continued to experiment with sound, color, rhythm, and melody.
From the beginning, Journey Dance projects a spatial quality reminiscent of new age music. But soon its rhythmic complexity and constant timbral and textural changes bring it closer to its classical and folk roots. And Hart's unpretentious vocalization adds warmth to the acoustic ensemble.
Journey Dance is a fresh, unaffected landscape of melded folk, classical, and jazz.
