Sean Harkness - "Summer Solstice" from "Aloft".
Windham Hill Records released Harkness's first solo CD after many singles on various compilations. The very first single was Summer Solstice [track #2 here] and was the title track to the first Summer Solstice compilation. Producer Brian Keane was Sean's first guitar teacher in 1978 and they kept in touch over the years... Keane's signature production style created a very [overly?] lush presentation for Harkness's compositions, which were always conceived as trios: two acoustic guitars and bass.
