From "Morning Sun: Adventures with Oboe" by PaulMcCandless with the Paul Winter Consort. The album will be released on September 22, 2017.

"In the summer of 1971, in a rented house by the sea in Marblehead, Massachusetts, the Consort recorded our album Icarus, with producer George Martin.

George had begun his musical career as an oboist, and I’ve always wondered if his interest in recording the Consort had to do with the fact that we had oboe in the band.

Paul McCandless brought this superb new piece to the sessions, and George loved it." - Paul Winter
