A review of "Solstice Sketches"

This is very cool ethereal music by Daniel Crommie, delivered through the flute and synthesizer (sic). It is very complex and wonderful music to listen to before sleep, yet it's difficult to describe and really must be experienced. Very dreamy and relaxing, yet mind stimulating. You cannot go wrong here even though it's hard to tell when one song leaves off and another begins. A wonderful addition to anyone's collection of relaxing, tranquil, thinking music. The prolific Crommie comes up with another winner here with Solstice Sketches.

Review of Saturnalia Trio's "Hummingbirds" CD

"This delightfully versatile group’s only problem is arithmetical; it actually consists of four multi-instrumentalists, who play everything from psalteries to synthesizers and darbukkas to dulcimers. They dig deeply into the progressive folk genre, combining medieval and Renaissance music with modern sensibilities. Memorable originals sit comfortably next to songs by John Dowland, and the results form a thoroughly enjoyable pastiche that might remind one of Fairport Convention or the Incredible String Band. This recording will be a smash within a hundred miles of any Renaissance fair." (JW) Here's a link to the full review page.
