Daytime Dreamer

Daytime Dreamer by Omar Akram

After copping a Grammy for his third record Echoes of Love, Omar is back with a full-on sonic assault to make sure he does it again. Not exactly pop, he does turn it up a notch loading the new age deck with pop and jazz smarts, keeping it buoyant, upbeat and winkingly sassy. This isn’t massage or healing music, this is listening music that anyone with a jazz lite bone in their body will love. Check it out.

AquaEssence: An Ocean of Calm

AquaEssence: An Ocean of Calm

A new age record that sounds like a [Ennio] Morricone soundtrack? Strange but true. If you can imagine Morricone at his most peaceful, impressionistic best, you get what Amberfern’s tribute to the ocean is all about. How’s that for a work around? The multi-instrumentalist delivers the goods here with a set that you would want to slip your massage therapist as a gift when her music shelf needs some updating.

Path of the Divine

Path of the Divine by Rajendra Teredesai

A lot of times, when a soundtrack producer wants something exotic for an underscore, they seem to hint at material like this, but hearing this recording makes you realize by how much they miss the boat. Not a typical new age/healing record, Teredesai transposes ragas for bamboo flute taking them someplace else entirely. With some electronic help to round out the sound, this collection of mind music is the gateway to some faraway place you imagine so it doesn’t matter how accurate your visions are.

Stillness: A Collection

In an increasingly noisy world, can a collection called “Stillness” be over looked? Probably not. A meditative album with cuts pulled from artists new and vintage at the label, it’s a well tracked, themed showcase that has audio getaway stamped all over it. Never drippy or exploitative, this is a set for people serious about getting their equilibrium back after one too many hits in the head, psychic or otherwise. Yep, it’s a spa afternoon for your head.

Sleeping Lotus

Reviver of a neglected art and instrument, this artist plays the kind of simple, background music that you hear in classy Chinese restaurants that play music like this for the rarified atmosphere it provides. A delicate work, the gentle vibe runs throughout delivering a special listening experience that is something pretty much different for Western ears. Arm chair travelers will enjoy this excursion into the real thing.
