I'm a person who listens to a variety of music: classical to hard rock, new age to jazz. I had a good feeling about this collaboration before I bought the disc - never even heard a note from it until I brought it home. And I was definitely not disappointed! Each song is a perfect representation of fine musical talent, arrangement, and production. From the tasty swell of guitars and keyboards in the intro of "Riders of the Ancient Winds", to the playful, wistful manner of "From the Redwoods to the Rockies (Acoustic Reprise)", the entire collection takes me to the ocean, then to a log cabin in a mountain meadow, and back again to a seaside forest. It's more than just great tunes, it is truly an experience that caresses the ears. I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't enjoy this album. Highly, highly recommended - I'd give it 10 stars.
