This is a classic CD of marimba music by one of the instrument's leading composers -- Alice Gomez. Several of the tunes on the CD are used as in a variety of musical competitions for high school students. The CD is an upbeat word music/jazz tour of the Americas guided by the marimba, an instrument with roots in the rainforest of Central America. Instrumentation includes two marimbas, acoustic guitar, bass and percussion. Musical influences range from Brazil and the Dominical Republic to Mexico and the Andean region of South America. Gomez is an internationally-known composer who has composed several pieces for symphony orchestras throughout the U.S. She has also released several top-selling Native American flute CDs.

"First, I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE the "Flute Dreams" CD of Native American music by Alice Gomez with Madalyn Blanchett & Marilyn Rife. I was particularly impressed with the authenticity of the music and the audio quality of the recordings. I wanted more! I stumbled on Marimba Quest quite by accident when I was searching out more music by Alice Gomez. It turns out that the three talented women who produced Flute Dreams are (or were?) also members of Marimba Quest and that was good enough for ME. I can assure you that the recording quality is top-notch and, if you close your eyes while listening to it, you can FEEL their presence as if they are in the same room with you! "Incidents In Travel" is the first recording I have found to reflect the authentic flavor of the marimba music I enjoyed so much when I lived in Central and South America back in the 1960s, and I am pleased to recommend it to YOU. Listen to the audio snippits provided and I am sure you will agree that the CD is worth buying even if there aren't any other tracks. ("Eagles" is worth the price, by itself!) So, if you like marimba music, this CD deserves a respected place in your collection."
