Renowned as both the founder of Windham Hill Records and one of that label's finest artists, guitarist Will Ackerman is well represented on this 16-track mostly instrumental collection. Drawing primarily on his 1980s material, PURE also features several compositions from other stages of Ackerman's career, including "The Impending Death of the Virgin Spirit," a delicate piece from '77, and a beautiful 2004 recording of "Murray's Song." While many of the tracks feature Ackerman solo, he is accompanied by top-notch musicians on a handful of tunes, most notably a gorgeously spare live performance of "Hawk Circle" from '83 with fellow six-string luminary Michael Hedges and pianist George Winston. As an introduction to Ackerman's gentle, relaxing sound, this compilation is ideal.
