Listening to the music of Amberfern is like traveling the world visiting secret gardens and enchanting forests.” —Bette Timm about Amberfern’s Quiescence: A World At Peace
The gentle and mesmerising feeling of the sea drifts through this peaceful tapestry of smooth, liquid soundscapes. Close your eyes and sail with the music across wide, sunlit oceans to warm sandy shores, quiet harbors and even deep underwater to visit beautiful coral reefs.
With this, the second in his Elements series, Amberfern focuses on the ocean, musically capturing the fluidity of the seas that embrace our beautiful blue planet.

With its strong Contemporary Jazz feel, In Search of the Magic is pianist/compsers/arranger Jim Chappell's most rhythmic album to date. It was recorded “live” in the studio utilizing his touring band (sax, bass, and drums) with the addition of percussion and electric and acoustic guitars. The trademark Chappell melodies remain intact: In Search of the Magic makes a strong statement once again about his continually evolving talents.
