Synopsis

Amazon.com
Nakai continues on his eclectic path in this collaboration with guitarist/composer/instrument-maker William Eaton and multi-percussionist Will Clipman, who has an impressive resume in the jazz, reggae, rock, and world music fields. Each of the three players are impressive musicians, and although the tunes are all based on spontaneous group interactions, there's seldom if ever any grandstanding. Each instrument floats comfortably in the sea created by the group's improvisations. Eaton's playing on the harp-guitar produces bass and sitar like tones by running the instrument through a synthesizer, and Clipman's work on tabla and talking drum is particularly impressive, while Nakai's flute flutters in an out of the mix like a hummingbird drunk on the nectar of a thousand wildflowers. --j. poet

"The combination of flute, drums and strings transport you in an inspirational ambient, and allow you relax and feel music in your body."

"This music is poetry. The combination of these instruments and the path of the music speaks to ones soul."
An album with an identity
Andy Agree | Omaha, NE | 05/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What are the elusive qualities that give an album a distinct identity? 1) Having its own sound, not quite like any other album. 2) A consistent, cohesive sound from the first track to the last, and 3) Giving the listener a unique feeling, a particular kind of enjoyment that they won't find anywhere else (even on other output by the same artists - in this case "Feather Stone and Light"). This is such an album. People have called Red Wind "desert music" or "southwest music" and we might as well accept these terms to describe the land of high skies, steep canyon walls, long shadows, sudden heat and coolness, bright sun, patches of shady green, magical twilight and black night that this album seems designed to evoke, where man is a small player with a big, observant spirit. William Eaton's guitars (quite varied in sound) seem to be nature herself, including rocks, wind and animals. Will Clipman's drumming could be man's activity, including his work, rituals and celebrations. And Carlos Nakkai's Native American flute could represent man's thoughts and feelings as he observes nature and ponders his place in it. Your own interpretations might be different, but this is beautiful music that slows down your internal chatter to a point where you can find your own place in it, and your own interpretation."
