The title track of the new Paul McCandless anthology, "Morning Sun" was originally the finale of the Consort's album Miho: Journey to the Mountain, the culmination of this evocation of the mythical "Shangri-La." Paul improvised a sublime and serene solo over an exquisite harmonic journey provided by Don Grusin on keyboard, I then came in on soprano sax, and finally Eugene Friesen on cello.
