The Hidden Land, the first album of new material recorded in the wake of a year off the road, is the logical extension of the Flecktones' recent activities. It makes sense to go back to the basics and start afresh. The Celtic motif that ran through the previous album may be gone, and though no guests appear on the new album, the same integrity that earmarked Little Worlds, with its host of outsiders, remains intact here.
You might criticize the group for not breaking any new ground here, but reinventing themselves is not the point here, reinvigorating themselves is. This group is often plagued by an impersonal distance on stage. However, this newest studio effort finds Bela Fleck and the Flecktones radiating a warm rapport that in turn generates music which is eminently accessible on its surface and endlessly fascinating below.

Fortunately, for those of us who prefer not to constantly bear People Will Say Were In Love - Rita Reys - The Rita Reys Story (Songs Of A Lifetime) (CD) weight of music history upon our shoulders, a spirit of exploration and experiment has come to define a musical tradition in America.
For that, I believe we are most indebted to Henry Cowell. Lineage and succession in music is often painted in broad strokes, describing aesthetic movements. Or else it is traced by the influence of one composer teaching another, as if learning to compose music were an apprenticeship akin to the repair of motor engines or the fabrication of chairs.
For the latter quality, every composer seems to accumulate influences in a different manner, and never so simply as program notes or artist statements might describe. Henry Cowell may have been fascinated by Irish myths, but of the millions of people and thousands of musicians who were familiar with those tales up untilnone had taken the opportunity to tell the story of Manaunaun in quite the way Cowell chose to do so. What brings about these moments of invention?
How does something so elemental as a tone cluster take such a clear artistic form? It is one thing to be influenced by personal contact, in the way that John Cage and Lou Harrison knew Cowell, as students.
Yet there are now four more generations of musicians who have come to know Cowell mostly, if not solely, through his works and publications. Among them are new music icons like Conlon Nancarrow, James Tenney, and Ben Johnston, more recently established composers such as Meredith Monk, Peter Garland and John Luther Adams, and countless aspiring artists, this writer included.
While many composers, over the course of their career, may wander through the use of electronics, draw inspiration from the music of other cultures, or explore unconventional instrumental techniques, very few can be found at the vanguard of so many unusual practices.
This is where Cowell seems always to be: the first of many. Inhe commissioned Leon Theremin to build the Rhythmicon, which would perform very difficult rhythms according to pitch relationships among the overtone series.
The force of those pianistic inventions have bred a shallow reputation for Cowell in historical surveys, as a bombastic inventor who later regressed to neo-Romanticism. But to be challenging, rebellious, or difficult does not in retrospect appear to have been his mindset exactly. As the title of his book, New Musical Resources, and his copious writings make clear, Cowell considered those inventions as mere tools for musical expression.
Later in his career, those specific tools became less prominent, and he focused more on counterpoint, polyharmony, and modal writing. His reputation seems to have suffered, possibly due, in a reflexive way, to his lack of conformity: he failed to parallel his earlier self.
But perhaps equally admirable is that he managed to create a feeling of community, not among like-minded individuals, but among highly individual minds. Cowell repaired that loneliness by articulating over and over again, in his concert programs, New Music Society publications, and journal articles, the importance of musical pioneers.
