Album Notes
"You'll be comforted by Kinderknecht's songs as the entire disc is perfect for leaving in the player for soothing sounds of Native America and worldly rhythms that add percussion and even keyboards to the tracks. Wonderfully mixed and produced." --- Lucky Boyd, MyTexasMusic

Cornell Kinderknecht is an award-winning performer of flutes and other woodwind instruments from around the world. His original compositions and playing have been described as soothing, soaring, haunting, and playful with influences of Native America, the Middle East, India, and the Far East. His musical style draws from his experience in the areas of classical, pop, folk, jazz and world music.

On his CD Returing Home, Cornell plays flutes from many cultures. He presents Native American flute, Bansuri flute from India, bamboo flute, recorder, and ocarina in beautiful and breathtaking musical settings. The flute is sometimes used as a lone solo voice or accompanied by keyboard and percussion. The music ranges from introspective to exotic to all out fun. Cornell's performance on Returning Home placed him as a finalist for "Musician of the Year" at the 2006 Texas Music Awards.

"The flute play is absolutely wonderful, and the variety of musical sounds on this work is rather amazing, with influences of Native America, the orient, and even classical baroque music as part of the mix. The pieces flow well from one to another, with both gentle meditative tracks, and lively, upbeat, tracks in the mix. ... I find the music refreshingly different, engaging, and the style of play simply mesmerizing." --- Rick McDaniel, Heart of the Cedar / Voice of the Wind

I love his spirit!
I always enjoy Cornell's music and and I am thrilled that he has finally made this CD!

The first word that comes to mind is spirit. This covers everything from reflective, joyful, pensive, to just plain fun!

The next is versatile, because he plays with so many fun and unusual instruments and styles. Just when you think you've caught on to what the cd is like, he throws you curve and takes it somewhere new!

I have listened to the CD many times now and always hear something new and enjoyable.

This is a fabulous CD! Quite a variety of sounds from meditative and moody to jazzy and lively. It triggered all my emotions. I went from tears to smiles to dancing!!! This CD has it all and the style is refreshingly different.

Returning Home is an absolutely wonderful experience in listening.
The first time I listened to “Returning Home” it was totally unexpected. I could not easily describe how I felt about it. I enjoyed the pace. The colors were beautiful and I experienced so many moods. Without redundancy, each piece was like stepping into a new world. I could appreciate the newness. It was a wonderful holiday that took me far away and then home again. Thank you Cornell.

Laura Belkin

Other reviews pretty much say it. Pleasantly soothing, but with enough variety to so the album holds up to repeated playing.

Jan Kin

Returning Home frees the listener
Cornell's music is ethereal and broadens the meaning of returning home - the home of mind, soul, and heart. The songs of the flutes give the listener freedom to wonder, wander, and always return home.

This CD is absolutely Beautiful!! One of my very favorites and most played. Everything on this CD was written and performed by Cornell. I has great variety and really touches you. My husband and I drove up to Dallas to hear him perform this CD live. My husband who normally would not listen to this type of music for long, played the entire 3 hour trip back home. It is amazing!

Greg Kinderknecht

Awesome and Inspiring
A combination of musical talent and personal insights that is true poetry; peaceful, relaxing, uplifting, inspiring...but not boring. Cornell seems to find that rare niche in this beautiful offering of all original instrumental works. Written and performed by him, Cornell allows the many different flutes carry the emotion of the thought, giving the listener the passion of the moment. The use of keyboards and percussion in certain selections enhances the power of the flutes, but does not overpower them. It is a must-have for any collection.

Shelly Niebuhr

"Returning Home" is full of wonderful surprises and I highly recommend this CD.

Recommended for all musical tastes!
Cornell plays, with warmth and feeling, a wide selection of world woodwinds on this album. I've listened to it over and over, and always hear something new. An amazing first CD!
