"Obo is very talented guitar player and this instrumental album displays his love of Latin/Flamenco sounds. The production is very clean and focused on his fluid style. Overall, an enjoyable listen - but to be honest - Olas Suaves is nothing ground breaking. But, sometimes it is nice just to let an album be on - still very much worth a listen for instrumental music enthusiasts."

"On CD sleeve: Let yourself float on the waves of the Pacific Ocean as the sea swells with its own natural rhythm, first rushing towards tropical Hawaiian beaches, then sweeping onto the rugged shores of the Pacific Northwest. Original compositions by Chuck Lange blend with the surging waves on Ocean Music, creating a mystical and serene musical experience.
Listerner's review: Again, I'm impressed with the label- Northsound - and their amazing field technicians (Keith Griswold & Josh Baldwin) capturing the varying sounds of the ocean. Lange let's the natural rhythm of the ocean guide his lulling new age keyboard melodies."

"The World Flutes Collection is a two-disc anthology from Lifescapes, whose name always means calming, relaxing music. Here the focus is on flute-like instruments from around the world.
This note is included on the back:
"Take this global journey and find your place of peace and relaxation. Ancient flutes of bamboo, bone and stone give voice to melodic tradition from the heart of history and soothe the mind, body and soul."
Fans of Lifescapes recording artists will recognize contributors John August, Timothy Franzich, guitarist Dean Magraw, Wayne Jones, Jeff Victor, Dan Schwartz and Laura MacKenzie. The 5th Element and Fiction also appear. Of special note here is the name of Kavin Hoo, whose work always stands out as especially beautiful.
The packaging is elegantly designed, as suits the music. The two-disc set is contained within in a kind of "trifold digipak" that folds out left and right with a tray for each disc.
29 tracks, and over 100 minutes of music."

"On CD Sleeve: "Classical Loon is an artful blending of music in the classical style with the haunting calls of the loon".
Listener Review: When I first put this CD on my wife and I had a laughing fit. But, we actually ended up enjoying the blend of classical music with the loon calls - it is relaxing back round music and my son went to sleep right away with it playing (good thing? bad thing?). The production is superb and the playing is playful and the loon calls are mixed in well as a whole. Bob Baldwin is the audio artist who recorded the loon calls live in their natural world - which is quite astounding that they turned out so well."

"Review from AllMusic: Having enjoyed a successful career as a producer, composer/arranger in Hollywood studios, Lex decided to make music to his own satisfaction. Mountains is music straight from the heart, inspired by his love of the Utah Wasatch Mountains. His keyboard compostions combine cuts of touching intimacy with a more driving, sophisticated, jazz orientation. Azevedo's piano and synthesizer work is complemented by violin, sax, cello, percussion, flute and clarinet.
Review from listener: A very pleasant care-free listen. New Age instrumentals - that will work in any environment (deep meditation, or relaxing back round music while reading or working at the office). The linear notes contain stories about how each song was inspired - which are interesting to read while listening to the music. The production on the album is really well down - you can feel all the nuances of what Lex De Azevedo was going for.

"The second album by Czech-born singer/songwriter Sui Vesan is perhaps best described as the point of triangulation between Yma Sumac's transcendently odd jazz exotica, the art pop of Björk or Kate Bush, and the crosscultural vocal experiments of Anglo-Indian singer Sheila Chandra. Vesan sings in her own made-up language, "Tatlanina," and at times her vocals recall Chandra's vocal percussion technique.
The arrangements, built on acoustic guitar lines played by Vesan's mono-named husband Rado, incorporate kalimba (the African thumb piano), South American-style wooden flutes, Middle Eastern rhythms, and other world music signifiers. However, Vesan is such a singular talent as a singer and arranger that Merging with the Brook doesn't come off as a mishmash of stolen ideas the way so many similar "worldbeat" albums do: rather than merely draping exotic skins over a basic framework of Anglo-American pop,
Vesan twists pop conventions to her own end on bizarrely catchy songs like "Running Through the Hollow Tree." Merging with the Brook is a vivid example of unique creativity and an endlessly fascinating listen.
"This 2-disc 2006 Canadian set combines some well-known

"Very interesting and a very solid find for the world music collection. I have enjoyed the didgeridoo as an element of World and experimental works and wanted some undiluted real. This is solid without ornamentation for effects. If your tastes run to the elemental components of hypnotic movement and percussive, great stuff.....if a studio polish type looking a for a taste of World , start with Ravi and the Sitar. Want some fun?, mix a little sitar, bagpipe , and didgeridoo, a fallen empire sampler."

"Toughest kind of review, content very good, just not what I expected. This is first and foremost a chorale selection regards British Folk Songs. The production its well done if contrary to "folk" , too much polish. If I was familiar with the song diction of British folk songs the lyrical content would have been more clear to me. A practiced ear for choral will enjoy since quite good."
"This British group from the 1970s had two top 20
American hits, both in 1974: "Wild Thing," the Troggs/Hendrix
classic, hit #14, and the follow-up, an original called "Touch Me,"
reached #19. The two hits racked up a combined 27 weeks on the
Hot 100. The band were essentially UK studio musicians fronted by
singer Annie Kavanagh. This is a reissue of the group's first LP,
issued here in the USA on Big Tree records at the time. Like many
Collectables reissues, this one is minus any meaningful liner notes,
etc. You get the music but not much more.
Besides the hits, the original "Between the Devil and Me" sounds a
lot like Brit pop from about eight years later...think Bow Wow Wow or
Adam & the Ants. And there's a worthwhile version of the Leiber/Stoller
oldie "I'm a Woman" (Peggy Lee, 1963 & Maria Muldaur, 1975). Kavanagh's
vampy vocals and some serious guitar work make the overall effort
convincing more often than not. In 1989, the track "Feel Good" was sampled
by the Beastie Boys on "Paul's Boutique."
Oddly, Fancy didn't chart anything at all in their native England.
One additional LP was released but it yielded no further hits and that
was it. Guess that makes them a "two-hit wonder.""

"Reading the review from the guy below claiming these guys are better than Hate breed is blasphemy and laughable!!! Where is "Life In Your Way" today? Where are "Hatebreed"? Do you want to compare the 2 bands resumes? That's what I thought.
Life in your way is exactly that. In the way. Glad they pulled over and let the good bands pass them by."
