On June 7, 2011, the exact lineup of Ancient Future that performed on our 'World Without Walls' recording reunited to perform for the first time in over 15 years at Yoshi's San Francisco and other venues. That same day to celebrate the reunion, Capitol/EMI Records released the first ever digital version of our 1990 'World Without Walls' recording.
As its name suggests, 'World Without Walls' depicts a musical world without borders. The recording features Ancient Future members Matthew Montfort (yours truly: bandleader, guitars), Jim Hurley (violin), Doug McKeehan (keys), and Ian Dogole (percussion), plus special guest performances by world music legend and tabla master Zakir Hussain.
The first video for the release is a live version of my composition '14 Steps,' a jazzy romp with a funky fourteen beat Indian groove. It was recorded on June 7, 2011, at Ancient Future's 'World Without Walls' Reunion Concert at Yoshi's San Francisco.
