to write a review


I simply love the way this makes me feel. Here is something to listen to, something to cradle. The dark current and lyricism take me to a cool place, where I'm caught in a trancelike vibe and held, almost hypnotized. Everything is original, especially "Skin to Skin"--the last and my favorite track--which seems to come out of left field, beginning with a wild, hiccuping pygmy flute, played by a virtuoso, that melds perfectly with what flows after. This is the real deal; you can hear everything. The musicianship is outstanding.

Exciting and Eclectic
We loved this exciting eclectic mix of songs--from self-revelatory to wryly witty to phantasmagoric. "Gypsy Bed" offers intimate vocals and imaginative instrumental settings created by Godfrey Nelson and played by outstanding musicians. "I Lived Once" and "Skin to Skin" are our personal favorites.
