In September of 2002, Rudy Adrian performed several live concerts throughout the continental United States. Upon returning home to New Zealand, Rudy went into the studio and recreated each track he had performed on the tour. Concerts In The USA contains these definitive studio versions of the pieces he performed live – arranged in a continuous flow perfect for album length listening.

Each track is from a different concert, defining location through a musical study of indigenous locales, as in the flutish portrait of “Rock and Junipers” from the Arches National Park in Utah; the same life-changing visit to the American southwest that was also the inspiration for Rudy’s recent release, Desert Realms.
