You cannot go wrong with a new EP by Marika Takeuchi. Her vision of piano-based new age music is enchanting and thrilling at the same time. How about a new long-player?
Favorite track: Endless Thoughts.
This is one of five long-term members of my wishlist, which I was able to promote into my collection all at once thanks to a generous name-your-price promotion granted by the fine "bigo & twigetti" label. Fiona Brice is a name you will bump into several times while flipping through the label's catalog. Her breathtaking 1st String Quartet in three movements is an exciting contribution to contemporary classical chamber music. Sven B. Schreiber (sbs)
There is a presence to Perkins' music that is so very attentive to its listener. He makes sure you feel the emotions he's trying to express, but not in an overbearing way, but one that leaves you eager to feel more of it. This cup, whether happy or sad is definitely overflowing. Lost Tribe Sound
The horns and other woodwinds on this album are so intense. A perfect mix of beauty and tension. Anytime I hear artists experimenting with woodwinds like this, it always peaks my interest, and this album does a wonderful job of sounding raw and unscripted, yet calculated at the same time.
