World renowned jazz pianist, composer, arranger, and flutist Scott Cossu is bringing his groundbreaking style to Rainshadow Recording. One of the prominent artists on the Windham Hill label for thirteen years (1981 - 1994), Scott's music is a unique blend of jazz, classical and world music styles. An ethnomusicologist who has studied with musicians from around the world, Cossu brings a wealth of experience to his music that makes him difficult to classify. Cossu was up front when New Age was just beginning over 30 years ago. He was one of the first Windham Hill Artists to join with founder Will Ackerman and Alex Degrassi, in their new label out of Palo Alto, California. Scott would affectionately call his music Heavy Mental or Cosmic National Geographic. Considered to be one of the grandfathers of the New Age scene; he was labeled a "jazz luminary of the future", by Billboard Magazine. Much of Scott's work exhibits departures from the New Age field and includes a melodic blend of jazz, classical and ethnic influences.
