Scott Cossu and Ann Lindquist on Sept 22, 2002

Scott Cossu, a Windom Hill original pianist and Ann Lindquist, flutist, commanded the stage Sunday evening Sept. 22 . for Seldovia Arts Council’s only Fall season concert. The duo’s performance consisting of original pieces by Scott Cossu, can be described as eclectic, spirit- filled, JOY. Scott’s compositions and arrangements combine elements of jazz, classical , world-beat and boogie- woogie beat piano and have names such as: Fawn Islands, Old Man Mambo, Cajun Kitchen Blues, Sanctuary, Gwenlaise and Deja Blues. When questioned as to whether this music could be classed aso New Age or Smooth Jazz, Scott laughingly renamed it, “Heavy Mental.” The music, however, was anything but heavy.

Ann Linquist who is featured on Scott’s new CD, “Emerald Pathway,” spiced it up with flute solos and dazzled us with her mastery of the unusual base flute. Both extremely talented artists now hail from Washington State where Ann has played electric flute, jazz, classical, folk, Middle Eastern, medieval, renaissance and baroque styles of music for the last twenty years.

The wonderfully matched pair are delightful to watch as their eyes sparkle the musical communication of soul-filled improvisations and their hearts become one with the audience. The show aptly celebrated the release of CD, “When Spirits Fly.” Warm, hospitable and approachable, these two musicians were an absolute treat to get to know AND to listen to. This was an outstanding evening!!!!!!

Special thanks to the Seldovia Arts Council for presenting this event and to the Seldovia Bible Chapel for the use of their beautiful edifice and piano, Thanks also to the Seldovia Rowing Club and to Lynn Corwin for artist accommodations and meals.

We all enjoyed this concert..special events included the microphone stand falling down (via vibrations during one number) and a standing ovation at the end of the concert--and the little dog (see picture in right end box) barked on cue during the final applause!!!! A special treat was hearing a base flute (pictured above) so beautifully played. Photos by Mary Glover
