Rasull Soon, who performs as BlueMonk, presents us with striking and haunting melodies in his debut CD. BlueMonk delights us with his soft and seductive piano and on certain tracks combines with the wonderful talent of flautist Rajendra Teredesai, whose compositions complement Blue Monk's piano. Mr. Teredesai is a well-known and respected Indian flautist, who provides us with some incredibly beautiful Indian bansuri or Native American flutes. The constant theme is soft, relaxing and mood setting background music to enhance your space. Real Music, the label, has always presented artists whose ethereal music will set the mood for complete calm and relaxation. This CD is no exception. And their choice of piano and flute here is an outstanding example of the kind of material I have come to expect from Real Music. There is a very eastern flavor to many of the pieces and there are some very Native American sounding tracks as well, but the music can still be considered "world music." The piano and flute are combined with electronic enhancements to lend a very otherworldly feel to the music sometimes, while offering some harmonic accompaniment to the composition. As a Reiki practitioner, I am always looking for music to complement my practice. This collection of peaceful and contemplative compositions gives the exact air to the practice room and settles well with my clients. This is a perfect CD for my practice and will be added to my playlist. Stand out tracks on the CD are Alicia's Dream that features the flute work of Mr. Teredesai accompanied by Mr. Soon's piano. The music is very ethereal, very peaceful and an excellent composition. Ancient Wisdom has a Native American feel. The flute work of Mr. Teredesai is exceptional. A beautiful track where east crosses to west with grace and dignity. My favorite pick is the track Eastern Sun. This is an Oriental work, with chirping birds and flowing water, first-rate eastern flute work and electronica that sets a relaxed and stress-free mood. I love how a range of oriental instruments are created and Mr. Soon's piano work compliments the entire presentation. For music to set a peaceful mood at the end of the day, or to complement your environment anytime, this album is a good choice. I recommend it to alternative therapy practitioners to enhance their working space.
