The release of Stained Glass Memories, by Windham Hill pianist/composer Scott Cossu, caps one of the most remarkable stories of personal triumph in contemporary music. Consistent with Cossu's popular and distinctively melodic blend of jazz, classical and ethnic influences, the new music evokes a panorama of deep emotions. Stained Glass Memories, recorded with previous Cosuu collaborators guitarist Van Manakas, flutist Dave Valentin, bassist Mark Egan, and drummer Robbie Armeen, is a joyous celebration of recovery from a traumatic car accident Cossu suffered in 1989. It is powerful evidence of his recovery and the full majesty of his musical language.
