On June 7, 2011, the exact lineup of Ancient Future that performed on
the band's influential 'World Without Walls' and Asian Fusion
recordings reunited to perform for the first time in over 15 years at
Yoshi's San Francisco and other venues. That same day to celebrate
the reunion, Capitol/EMI Records released the first ever digital
version of Ancient Future's classic 1990 'World Without Walls'
recording. It is available now for download purchase at all major
digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon.com MP3 Store.
As its name suggests, 'World Without Walls' by Ancient Future depicts
a musical world without borders. This classic 1990 recording features
Ancient Future members Matthew Montfort (bandleader, guitars), Jim
Hurley (violin), Doug McKeehan (keys), and Ian Dogole (percussion),
plus special guest performances by world music legend and tabla
master Zakir Hussain. The inviting melodies and ingenious use of
ethnic textures make 'World Without Walls' one of Ancient Future's
most accessible and broadly appealing releases ever.
The first video for the release is a live version of Montfort's '14
Steps,' a jazzy romp with a funky fourteen beat Indian groove. It was
recorded on June 7, 2011, at Ancient Future's 'World Without Walls'
Reunion Concert at Yoshi's San Francisco, and is available for
