Stunning Multi-Instrumental Album from Master Flautist

"This is a splendid CD, and many regard it as Nicholas Gunn's finest collection of original compositions.From the opening notes of the captivating "Moonlight on Havasu Creek," one quickly realises this is going to be a special listening experience. It is a highly complex piece, but has great melodic appeal and perfectly captures the entire spirit of The Grand Canyon. Flute dominates, but is blended with a large assortment of accompanying instruments. Tracks two and three are also highly impressive, and have that rare quality of making you whistle them for days on end. "Flight Over North Rim" is dramatic in its entirety, not least when the helicopter soars over the canyon.More highlights are in abundance. I never tire of this CD. Additional information about The Grand Canyon is included within the CD insert, and 10% from the sale of this album goes directly to the Grand Canyon Association to assist in their efforts to preserve the park.I cannot recommend this CD highly enough. It is beautiful, dramatic, inspiring, uplifting and highly melodic. Appreciate the skills of this English-born musician.... and enjoy."
GREAT MUSIC...BUT WHY THE TALKING???

"I love this CD and play it for dinner parties and in the morning to relax, etc.
However, one of the tracks has extended talking and factual data on the Grand Canyon (some of which is inaccurate by the way), interspersed w/the music. It is a jarring distraction and absolutely not necessary. If there was a way to delete a song from a CD, I'd be all over it.
Less talking, more music, please!!"
Can't get enough of that Nicholas!

"I so love this CD that I have played it so many times I wore it out and had to buy a second replacement CD. I simply cannot get enough of it! Nicholas Gunn is an artist of incredible talent, who's music is stunningly beautiful in my opinion. All three of his albums are of a very high recording quality of course, but Grand Canyon is my personal favorite. If you want to be relaxed, energized, riveted, soothed, moved, touched to tears, amazed, and wrapped in the unique kind of musical embroidery that only pure musicians can weave all in the space of one CD, put on this Grand Canyon CD and prepare to take the journey. This album is going to be in my collection forever. One question though: Nicholas, when are you going to do a CD inspired by the sacred places of the mountains? Either way, I cannot wait for the next Nicholas Gunn journey."
