Arranger: Russel Walder.
Oboe player Russel Walder, late of Windham Hill recording duo Stein & Walder, makes his solo debut with an album of heart-opening, mid-tempo instrumentals that lean more toward classical music than toward the jazz-tinged work of his earlier career. The smoky tones of oboe add to but never dominate the material. Walder employs synths, samples, and wordless female vocals to paint panoramas of indigenous New Zealand (where the album was recorded).
Not only is Walder a skilled and expressive oboe player, he is also capable of writing striking compositions like "This Moment Now," a stately canon whose melody strives forward and cycles back like time itself. For all its space and vastness, the music never becomes bombastic. The moderate pace suits meditative endeavors, massage or relaxation.
