Towner is one of the most diversely talented musicians of the past half-century, having made notable recordings of classical, jazz, folk and world music. Following a classical-conservatory education, studying classical composition and guitar, Towner then joined world music pioneer Paul Winter's Consort ensemble in the late 1960s. Along with band members Paul McCandless, Glen Moore, and Collin Walcott, Towner left the Winter Consort in 1970 to form the group Oregon, which over the course of the 1970s issued a number of highly influential records mixing folk music, Indian classical forms, and avant-garde jazz-influenced free improvisation.
As well as collaborating in concert and/or recording with many artists, Towner has recorded over two-hundred of his instrumental compositions, with works being commissioned and performed by some of the world's leading orchestras.
Available here is the second volume of solo works for guitar, including Always By Your Side, The Hollows, Toledo and more.
