After the 'A New Dawn' and 'Wings Of Eagles' albums the Indiana-based flautist now releases a self-written and self-produced album of music that is at once gentle, vivid and passionate. From the opening hauntingly wordless call to prayer, this hour-long journey leads the listener through a peaceful melodic landscape that is both restful and vibrant with life and meaning. Andrew strikes notes from the Celtic, ambient and classical canons without losing his signature fluidity of sound. In an industry well-nigh waterlogged with wallpaper-paste pap masquerading as "inspiration", this is the real thing. A rarity to savour.
