Afternoon in Sedona is the debut release from flutist/multi-instrumentalist Nicholas Gunn, the hottest new name in contemporary instrumental music. With an album that is at once tribally powerful and inwardly serene, Gunn’s rich full sound takes us on an incredible global journey. Through his mastery of the flute, synthesizer and percussion and inspired by the environmental issues that challenge today’s world, Nicholas takes us to the great American southwest in a way that you will never forget.
The parting of a summer mist, a loved one’s tender touch, the fragrance of a rose… memories of The Unforgetting Heart. Complemented by the flutes of Tim Wheater, along with viola, Michael Hoppé’s sensitive and moving piano melodies lift the veil to a place where love awaits.
With flute melodies floating like clouds on a whispering wind, tribal rhythms intense as lightening showers on a hot summer night, Passion in My Heart embraces with a sound enticingly seductive. A piece of Nicholas’ heart lives in this grand and mystical land where his flute captures an ancient breath and his spirit dances to an ageless melody.
After the phenomenal success of his debut album Olympus, Australian composer/keyboardist Mars Lasar brings us 16 bold new songs — over 70 minutes of music — dedicated to hope for a world in crisis. From the soaring “Universe in Time” and “Corroboree” to the poignant “Hold On” and “Children of the World,” to the sensational title track, “The Eleventh Hour,” this is powerful music with a powerful message — there’s still time for change — listen closely.
Soft rhythms of liquid, mystical motion blending Chinese and electro-acoustic harps, congas, flutes, didgeridoo, guitars, violin, penny whistle. While Native American, Tibetan and Hawaiian voices sweep you off to a blissful escape.
