CD Reviews

Drums can make you crazy.
William J. Finn | Sarasota Florida | 01/08/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Marylin Rife was the percussionist for the first handful of recordings by Alice Gomez, from "Flute Dreams" to "Obsidian Butterfly". Her tympani beats helped center the keyboard harmonies and the flutes of Madalyn Blanchett.

This CD emphasized the percussion work much more than the others, but still it is a work of three extremely talented musicians.

If you enjoyed any of Alice Gomez or Madalyn Blanchett recordings, such as "Flute Dreams", then this one will give you equal pleasure.

It is difficult for me to believe that after 10 years, this is the first review of this CD on Amazon. Buy this if you enjoyed "Flute Dreams" or any other early Alice Gomez recordings."
