"Ascensionism" is Richard Bone's tribute to
the Ascension Schools and the beat poets. It
is a smooth ride of soft rhythms and quirky
instrumentation. The gentle soundscape is
perfect for grooving, laying back and drifting
into a coffeehouse. It is also excellent for
meditating on a lazy day and, perhaps,
contemplating the state of the mind or of the
soul. Richard has always been in the "cool"
zone. On this CD, he goes "cooler than cool"
and remains in the "can do no wrong"
