Medwyn Goodall: Snows of Kilimanjaro Medwyn Goodall has been a leading new age composer/performer since before my hair started turning gray! (It has been a while. Don't ask!) And in my personal journeys in the new age and e-music communities, I have not really embraced his music. Then I heard Snows of Kilimanjaro! The first thing that impressed me about this CD is an endorsement from Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. I have always admired "Fergie's" rebellious nature, her persistent ability to come back and her style in general. She endorsed the project because it helped to raise 200,000 pounds for"Children in Crisis," a charity that she founded in the early 90's. Then I read Jeff Stewart's liner notes. (Jeff is an executive with New World Music, Medwyn's label.) It is difficult to paraphrase the entire essay so I will not try. In short, Ron Friend organized the expedition to honor his son, Martin Friend. Martin was murdered in Uganda as he was planning his climb up Kilimanjaro. All 20 climbers in Ron's party reached the peak. Finally, I listened to the music! It is delicious! It is a dramatic soundtrack to a dynamic event. Med's cheerful music showcases ethnic influences galore. It also shows divine inspiration. It seems to me that this entire project was in God's hands from the start. This music is bright and uplifting. It is "as refreshing and pure as the snow itself." ~ Jim Brenholts, EER-MUSIC.com
