Sensuous rhythms lull a paradisal reprieve
maya trace | lopez island | 06/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Daniel Paul's exemplary debut release features a bevy of well-seasoned comrades to create this musical odyssey to Paradise. From Hawai'i to California, musicians such as the fine vocalist Lorellei, world interpretative musician Jai Uttal, and percussion student extraordinaire Michael Pluznick from Marin County, CA., join together with Bruce Becvar, Dean Evenson, Steve Kindler, Raphael, and Glenno Falkenberg to row, glean, and plow a sea of undulating, exhiliarating tropical dreams. Song titles echo the dreamy, swaying rhythm of water lapping, sun and shade dancing, recalling "Neptune's Court", "Oceania", "Rapture", "Moroccan Moon", and "Wave Runner", and the title track, "Rhythms of Paradise". Paul leads a strong pulse on tabla, with taraong, timpani, tamboura and gongs to accompany. Harmonium, flute, guitar, keyboards, violin, harps, and dulcimer, along with plenty of crisp djembe, driving djun djun, congas, bongos, and shakere round out the sensuous, hypnotic musical reverie. Like the movement of tides, or the light of the moon on water, the effect upon listening is relaxing, subtle and all-pervasive."
