Windows Of Time – I hope that you will check out Wertico Cain & Gray’s 8th album, Windows Of Time. This was a labor of love to transcend regression and fear with hope, love, and peace – through collaboration and creativity. “Cosmic music that refuses to be categorized, adjacent to SunRa, Herbie Hancock, John Cage, but unique unto itself…” ~ Benjamin Lowder, Artist. Available on iTunes, Spotify

Review by Victor Aaron, Something Else Reviews: “You guys do nothing but amazing work.”
