Today’s guest deejay is Steve Targo, AKA Inner Travels. I met Steve when Soundwave guest deejay Rhucle (listen to his mix here) who he knew who he knew would share a mix with us. He suggested Steve. After listening to today’s show, you’ll hear why. It’s a lovely mix, and by coincidence, it paired well with the rare rainy weather we’ve been having in San Diego for the last week. There were times when I wasn’t sure if what I was hearing was the rain outdoors or Steve’s music indoors. It was a magical experience. If you’d like to hear more music from Steve, be sure to check out his project, Nimbudala. His debut album, Universal Compassion will be released on October 22, and you can pre-order it on Bandcamp as well as listen to a few preview tracks. Steve says while the album still fits in the New Age ambient realm, it also has more acoustic sounds and influences from kosmiche, rock, jazz, and world music. I’m playing the album as I write this, and it’s wonderful. Steve has some words about today’s show below. Before I leave you, I wanted to tell you about a project that I’m launching on January 1, 2022, called Genius and Soul. The show will feature a series of mixes from guest deejays from Jazz and Black Classical Music to today’s scene’s many styles and branches. Our show’s efforts will also include fundraising for the Jazz Foundation of America. Follow us on Twitter for more updates. Join us next week when our guest deejay will be PCM. See you then! Here is, I believe, an excellent primer for those interested in exploring the music of Inner Travels—four songs from four albums released between 2016 and 2019. From trance-inducing synthesizer work to an improvisation led by electric piano and singing bowls, the common theme in this mix is rain. I say “mix,” but really, this feels to me like its own album. Thanks for listening, and Joseph, thanks for asking me to do this!

Haydn's Mass in Time of War is sometimes known as his Paukenmesse because of his prominent use of timpani for dramatic effect. It's one of the best known of his fourteen mass settings, and has been lucky on record. Richard Wigmore talks to Andrew about the work and about the very different approaches performers have brought to it, and settles on the ultimate recording to buy, download or stream.
