If Darshan Ambient never released a CD before this nor after this CD – it would be enough, that is, enough to say – Wow! This is a very special man with a very special way to bring peace and serenity across time and space and into the eternal soul. It overflows with gentle flowing ambient sunshine and haze, warmth and cool mists – in the form of sound – melodic sound, a very Eno-driven sound. Allison takes sonic simplicity and dresses her in a way that she shimmers and shines. Her natural melody and flow of aural body line preserved, her tender smile with innocence overwhelming – the beauty is pristine. You listen in awe and you realize Allison has been to heavenly places in the heart that where we all deserve to be guests. Pavilions of alabaster and streets of pearl seem to appear at the edge of the listener’s consciousness. When temples of the future are built to honor the sacredness of dreams, this music will waft its magic there . . . I can write no more. I must close my eyes and leave this cold world of computer and endless typing of code. Thank you, Michael, thank you for these visions and the healing. Ahhhhh . . .
I love jazz because next to my kids, it's the love of my life.
I was first exposed to jazz by Joe Rico from a tiny station in Niagara Falls in 1954 when I was 13.
The best show I ever attended was Maynard Ferguson who blew the roof off Massey Hall in the late 50s.
My advice to new listeners is to listen to everything you can and then listen again.
