Man in the Moon

Randall Avers, composer, guitarist, and educator, became a protege of Towner’s, when he was granted a two-year stipend by the Norwegian government to study Towner’s music, and make this recording.

Guitarist and composer Ralph Towner has made an indelible imprint on the American musical landscape in a way that few contemporary musicians have been able to. Though the legacy of his compositional influence has almost developed subliminally during the enduring march of his career, history has rightfully begun to acknowledge the incredible breadth and depth of his artistic contributions to both classical and jazz idioms.

Among Ralph Towner’s many honors (including a 2001 Grammy nomination for best instrumental composition "The Templars"), the Apollo 15 astronauts named two lunar craters after his compositions, Icarus and Ghostbeads which inspired the title of the album.
