Synopsis

Amazon.com
Native American flutist Douglas Spotted Eagle dedicates this album to children as part of his efforts to support the prevention of child abuse. The result is a compilation of Spotted Eagle's strongest material, beginning with the very emotional "The Traveler," a piece the composer wrote after his children were taken from him. Rife with soothing cedar flute, this album sets an expansive, spiritual mood slow in tempo and sparse in instrumentation. Native chant and drums fill out the swaths of long, lush flute, ambient synth, and chiming guitar. "Daddy's Arms," though an emotionally meaningful song for what seems to be divorced and absent fathers, is definitely the odd pick out. Spotted Eagle is not a trained singer, and the tune would have benefited from one, especially since the featured instrumentation is piano à la Jim Brickman. Outside of this small peculiar blip at the CD's end, this album is a respectable collection of beautiful Native flute music that emits a centered, calming energy. --Karen K. Hugg

In touch with ones origan Cherokee and the hungry to learn

"Puts one in touch with spritual being. For I'm part Cherokee and have a hungry to know more and learn more about my people as they are apart of my every day living. To know the past and present."
In my opinion...

"This is about the best music ever put down on a CD. This music is like a door to another world, even if you do not know it. The ethereal sounds on this album that is sure to relax and totally separate your consciousness from a busy world are unparalleled. For those unfamiliar with this sort of music, it is vaguely similar to Enigma (without chanting or hip-hop backbeat and sexual undertones). However, much like the gregorian chants, the rolling rythyms of the flutes and drums carry a well-known emotion that your soul knows if your mind forgot. This is the sort of sound that can wash stress and worry away... leaving you refreshed, calm, and perhaps a bit somber. It rarely spikes or troughs, but manages to rock your mind to a calm like a gently rippling lake. It definitely is a more natural, earthy sound. If you like grating machine noise, synthesized sounds, or anything along those lines, this may not be for you."

"Spotted Eagle has become one of my favorite Native American musicians. I have much of his music. This CD is as good as "Pray," but Spotted Eagle actually sings on "Daddy's Arms." What a great voice he has! In addition, he states he cannot sing. Please Douglas, sing to us some more."
