(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a really great CD. It's a good blend of traditional native North American rhythms with modern blues, jazz, and dance. If you're put off by the very traditional but screechy powwow singing, there is little of that here except for the track Powwow Medley. There is no wandering flute music and there is absolutely no silly New Agey stuff (ala Walela). What you will find is modern music tuned for the native ear. Generally the tunes are upbeat and will have you tapping your finger if not out of your chair dancing. The lyrics are positive and touching. If people at raves were dancing to "Before, Now, and After" we would probably live in a very different world. The track "History 101" is a fantastic history lesson for us all. I give the CD 4 stars instead of 5 because there are times when the production quality seems a little off (too much bass here, losing the left track there). Also some of the music seems a bit specific and hard to identify with - e.g., "Silent until Now." This CD is hard to find but very worthwhile. I wish Songcatchers would make more CDs."
