Synopsis

Amazon.com
Imagine Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon with a Native American motif and you have a fair gauge of Peter Buffett's intentions on Spirit, a live recording of a 1998 stage production involving more than 80 drummers, dancers, and musicians. (Originally aired on public television, Spirit is now on video.) Most of Buffett's keyboard-driven, percussion-fueled compositions are live renderings of works from his intriguing 1997 release, Spirit Dance, his most recent ode to Native culture. The energized live setting (at times involving a female youth choir, Native American singers, Native American flutist Robert Mirabal, and, impressively, guitarist Peter Maunu) serves Buffett's atmospheric work well as it traces a theme of personal transformation guided by Native spirits. Spirit may not fully match the sustained sensory impact of Pink Floyd's opus, but it offers several riveting moments--the percussion-heavy reworking of "Firedance," his brief contribution to Kevin Costner's film Dances with Wolves, the exultant "Passage," and a lost gem from Buffett's catalog, the plaintive, piano-based "New West." --Terry Wood

CD Reviews

Feel the 'Spirit' Move Within You ...
Patrick K. Rigg-Aiex | Canton, GA USA | 08/21/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"... whether or not you're of Native American blood. Peter Buffett has done a remarkable job of blending traditional Native American drumming and chant with cutting-edge pop sensibilities. You will feel the rhythms and melodies call to you as no other music does. When you watch the video, and hear the voiceover done by Chief Hawk Pope that translates the native speech, you will believe the message that the CD and video send: we are all one people. As it says in the video: "Speak your spirit. Dance.""
