ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is Pamela Sklar's debut cd which features her flute playing, along with other talented colleagues on many different instruments. Co-featuring chamber music of mixed styles, this is Pam's tribute to Native American cultures. The spirituality and sheer beauty of Native American flute music and cultures has inspired Pamela to compose and perform this music. Described by The Boston Globe: "Sklar, a master of control and dynamics, conjured up delicious imagery...rich, pure sound", and by The New York Times as "stimulating...engaging...piquant...delightful", Pamela Sklar performs on flute, multiple alto flutes, bass flute & piccolo. She can be heard on recordings for many other artists including Tony Bennett, Paul Simon, Celine Dion, Diana Krall; for feature films and commercials. As solo flutist, she has performed extensively throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico, Morocco, France, Italy and Japan with various artists including French pianist and crossover composer Claude Bolling. Other career highlights include appearances with Dave Brubeck, Alan Hovhaness, Boyz II Men, orchestras for The GRAMMY Awards and Songwriters Hall of Fame Awards. She enjoys collaborating with various other artists and composing for mixed winds, strings, percussion and flutes-from contrabass flute to piccolo. Born into a family of professional musicians Pamela began playing flute when she was five years old. Influenced by family members and other musicians who created and performed classical, jazz, experimental theater and rock music, she first began composing as a child, played classical and rock flute as a teen and became infatuated with playing chamber music in college. She studied at Manhattan School of Music prep division while in high school and received her Bachelor of Music degree with honors from Mannes College/The New School for Music in NYC. Her compositions are commissioned by/written for her colleagues and other groups.
Pamela Sklar's newest original cd Silver Pharaoh (released by MSR Music) features her playing flute & bass flute with colleagues & co-features unusual & unusual combinations of instruments including Egyptian harp, fretless bass, percussion, contrabassoon, viola, bass clarinet & organ.

An emotional ride
After listening to the entire CD I felt a sense of calm and desire to hear more.
The variety of sounds and tones are so well matched yet so unique..
Pam has certainly mastered the art of capturing ones imagination and holding it firmly within her talented grasp.
The wide spectrum of songs blend so well with each other while each envoking a totally different sense of delight.
Well done!!!!!

Exquisite melodies
Pamela Sklar's exquisite melodies have taken me on a true musical journey. The artistry of the unique musical blends in this album is of special note. Sklar's compositions are intricately woven, involving the audience as participants in the listening experience. The melodies provoke vivid imagery, while nourishing the soul. Listening to this album is a pleasure, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be whisked away from the every day.

Cool Original Music
I bought this CD at a concert and will order more! It is a fabulous CD which i can listen to again and again.
Soothing, inspiring and perfect for chilling out, relaxing. From the Land is my favorite but i also enjoy hearing
Remember and Eventually. Hard to choose just one or two from this, as they each have something special worth listening to.

An excellent CD!
Pamela Sklar's new CD is a very inspired and beautiful collection of contemporary original compositions featuring various flutes, clarinet, english horn, guitar, violin, cello, bass, drums and percussion.  Even though Pamela plays with a completely different ensemble on every piece or by herself, the unique Native American-Jazz concept, with it's classical leanings, ties everything together into a cohesive, sonically thematic presentation.  This is very spiritual, deep and sophisticated music.  Pamela displays a very wide range with her composing and playing (piccolo, flute, alto flute and bass flute). An excellent CD!

Pamela Sklar's Original Music is Inspiring
There are three types of flutes on this CD, each played exquisitely. I didn't know that a flute could create so many beautiful sounds! A classical flutist, Pamela also improvises and composes
music which is an interesting blend of Native American, jazz and classical styles. Undoubtedly American, this is
inspiring music with much depth and meaning, yet easy to listen to.
