Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Brewing up a potent mix of Native American flute and an array of percussion, Mr. Nakai and Mr. Clipman set the listener on a musical journey that sounds as if it bubbled up from the earth. Opening "Oasis," Mr. Clipman provides a meaty rhythmic background that includes some palmas against the soaring flute of Mr. Nakai. Moving through stunning tracks like "Kindling the Essence," the dazzling drumming of "Endless Journey" and "First Morning," listeners get a surprise by the quirky "Portal" that almost sounds like an animal lumbering across the landscape.
