Album Notes
A global sampler of contemporary instrumental and world-beat jazz. The CD features an intelligent, spirited range of music including warm coastal jazz, torrential eastern melodies, and American heartland guitar.


"Spirit contains tasty echoes of south American, Leo Kottke and other 'American primitives' such as George Benson and the FM 'smooth jazz' crowd. The disc also offers some savory, ear-grabbing world-beat stew. River East is a jolting gem."
Tom Surowicz, The Twin Cities Reader

"Fresh and inventive, Glen Helgeson's guitar artistry has developed a growing legion of fans who dig his music from radio to live...easily one of the most creative and underrated instrumentalists from the Twin Cities."
Rob Moore, Programming Director, The Cafe KCFE FM Radio

"Spirit of the Wood provides listeners with a vivid portrayal of the artist's across-the-board musical sensibilities. It boasts touches of jazz, folk, classical and soft rock, with ethnic flavors ranging from Latin to Mediterranean to African."
Andrew Bacskai, St. Cloud Times
