“Dreamwalker” is the collaborative effort of Pati Pellerito and Mark Holland, who’ve created one of the most rewarding meditative albums I’ve heard in a while. Recorded in the moment while in the studio, just as they do during live performances, the album serves as a continuous sound healing journey which has been divided into nine tracks, spanning seventy-three minutes total. Pati showcases an array of exotic, mostly Far-Eastern musical instruments, including Tibetan singing bowls, quartz crystal bowls, planet gongs, handmade accent gongs, wind gong, Kaizen drum, Shruthi, Kochi chime, bells and tingshas. Mark plays a variety of Native American style flutes, Bansuri flutes, Anasazi flute and Buffalo Horn flute.

Jim Ottaway is an electronic music composer from Australia, whose album “Invisible Vortex” was created using an impressive array of electronic music gear and equipment, including several different keyboards and synthesizers. Dedicated in part to the memory of Tangerine Dream founder, Edgar Froese (1944-2015), notable influences of musical styles spanning several decades are evident, in particular, 80s-era European electronic music, 90s-era trance-techno, modern electronica, chill-out and a touch of progressive rock.

Jeffrey Seeman picked up the guitar at the age of eight, having been influenced by a variety of musical styles growing up and playing in a few bands. His album, “Everything In Between”, was produced by Will Ackerman, co-produced, mixed and mastered by Tom Eaton, and recorded at Imaginary Road studios in Vermont. Jeffrey is joined on this album by a handful of musicians who lend instruments such as cello, violin, viola, saxophone, bass, percussion and Hammond organ to various compositions.

“Signature-Synchronicity” is the highly anticipated album by Fiona Joy, an award-winning pianist, composer and vocalist from Australia. Recorded at Imaginary Road Studios in Vermont, the album was produced by Will Ackerman, Tom Eaton (who also mixed the recording) and James Englund. As the sequel to her “Signature-Solo” album, “Signature-Synchronicity” features piano ensemble arrangements of its predecessor’s solo compositions.

“Dividing the Darkness” is pianist and composer Steve Rivera’s second album, this one having been produced by Windham Hill founder and guitarist Will Ackerman, and recorded at Will’s Imaginary Road Studios. Tom Eaton also co-produced and mastered the album, as well as plays keyboards, percussion, electric guitar and bass on various tracks. In addition to Steve’s dynamic and poised piano playing throughout, he is also joined by other musicians who lend varying instruments to eight of the nine tracks total...

“Trialogue” is the collaborative effort of award-wining multi-flutist, Sherry Finzer, guitarist, Darin Mahoney (who plays both self-built koa and cedar guitars), and Grammy-nominated global percussionist, Will Clipman. This proficient and talented musical trio has crafted a diverse album centered on variants of three main instruments, which is mostly evocative of American landscape and the scenic Southwest, although the compositions occasionally traverse along more exotic terrain.

Ann Sweeten is a pianist, composer, Steinway artist and poet, who released her first album, "Prism", in 1997. Inspired by themes of nature and, specifically, the butterfly, “Where Butterflies Dance” dually captures the essence of human emotion and life’s experiences, conveyed by the butterfly’s universal symbolism of beauty, love, hope, death, rebirth and transformation.

“Time and Again” is acoustic guitarist Bob Kilgore’s fifth album, joined throughout by his brother Bear on keyboards and percussion, and Sarah Dean on cello. As the inventor of a device called the harmonic capo, Bob kept his invention to himself for many years until he introduced it to the world in 2007. Combining elements of world, jazz, classical, solo acoustic and contemporary instrumental, Bob has crafted a dynamic and edgy, yet sophisticated album, full of intricate detail and vivid, colorful tones.

Following a seven year hiatus since her 2008 album, “And Winter Came”, Enya returns with the long-waited, “Dark Sky Island”, which is named after the island of Sark in the English channel where the absence of light pollution allows for naked-eye astronomy. As if to pick up where she left off twenty years prior, I can honestly say this is easily the best album the beloved Irish singer has put forth since “The Memory of Trees”.
