Synopsis

Album Description
Let the rhythms of music and nature carry you away in this relaxing voyage above and below the surface of the majestic Pacific Ocean. This compelling ocean odyssey takes you from the coast of California to the depths of the Pacific off Alaska and Hawaii where you will hear the intriguing sounds of the sea recorded over a 10-year span by nature sound expert Bernie Krause. Feel your worries drift away as soft, contemporary compositions by award-winning recording artist Rodney Franklin converge with the soothing sounds of surf and graceful melodies of the deep, including the songs of whales, fish and even delicate, tiny shrimp. The relaxing music of the sea washes worries away as you drift off on an Ocean Odyssey to anywhere. Rodney Franklin's beautiful multi-instrument compositions merge with calming sounds of ocean surf and rare underwater recordings of whales and other ocean denizens for a truly relaxing, truly refreshing experience.

CD Reviews

I'd Give it Ten Stars if I Could! Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!
V. Hines | Detroit, MI United States | 06/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Ocean Odyssey" is truly one of the most beautiful recordings I have ever heard in my life! I searched high and low for this CD for over a year, and finally came across it, and I am so glad I did. It surpassed my expectations, but I know the caliber of Rodney Franklin's music. He is a musical genius -- truly gifted! Each song blends into the next one and takes you on a splendid, life-affirming journey into the infinity of the majestic Pacific Ocean where you hear the wonderful and magnificent denizens of the sea. I am a longtime fan of Rodney Franklin, having listened to him since 1981. He plays the piano so beautifully, I am actually moved to tears sometimes when I listen to him. His music is truly a gift from God. I am also grateful to Bernie Krause for exposing us to the beautiful recordings of these awesome creatures. You truly do forget your worries when you're listening to Ocean Odyssey. All you want to do is to let each note seep into your soul and uplift you, which it is guaranteed to do. My personal favorites are Endless Blue, Bossa Beach and the one that I will have to listen to for the rest of my life -- Into the Deep. Mere words cannot describe the overwhelming beauty of this song. Rodney Franklin has really outdone himself with this project. I challenge anyone to listen to this without feeling affected by it. This is one hauntingly beautiful, ethereal, and spiritually-moving CD. I am in awe every time I am blessed to hear it. Thank you, so much Mr. Krause and Mr. Franklin, for collaborating on this project. You have given your listeners a priceless gift."
