Hello AutumnThe New Season!
Once we hit September, we begin to feel it in the air: the change of seasons.  We lament the shortening of the days, the cooling of the earth and sea.  But the fall brings its own simple pleasures, from walking in leaves to viewing the filtered sunlight.  And it’s not cold yet; that time will come.  For now, it’s pumpkins and harvest festivals and the new season of TV.

We are especially enamored with this year’s crop of autumn albums, so many that they threaten to overload our News page!  We hope that you’ll check out our Fall Music Preview for short descriptions, but for a vast selection of upcoming music, stay right here ~ you’re sure to find something good!

We’re only able to review a fraction of what we receive, so this page is our way of helping listeners to preview as many albums as possible in a short period of time.  A huge thank you to all of the labels, artists and readers who support instrumental music.  May your next favorite album be right around the corner!
