ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"RJ May's writing is vivid, flitting from abstract to detailed and, when paired with Pnapper's music, makes for a provocative listening experience." - The Seattle Times

2003 saw the release of two new WORDBLENDER CDs: Nectar and Tainted Ambrosia. WORDBLENDER has picked up where their debut recording left off and grown exponentially. Why two full length albums at the same time? Apparently the material was abundant, falling into two very different categories. Nectar is the “day” to Tainted Ambrosia's “night”. Yes, the two albums are that different.

Nectar is based loosely on R J May's travels through Central America. Pnapper, the musical force behind WORDBLENDER, has enhanced the lyrical imagery with music that spans a multitude of genres, interweaving a Central American vibe throughout the proceedings. The sights, flavors and colors of Central America burst forth with aplomb. Various guest musicians have added to Nectar's uniqueness. This is "art" for the ears.

Nectar is an hour-long journey into exotic places. Far removed from the bleak landscapes common in R J May's poems/stories, this album is a positive force, one that documents new and unending possibilities for future WORDBLENDER endeavors.

A 16-page full-color booklet with all lyrics is included. The cover alone oozes a tropical breeze and endless summery skies. Check the dictionary: nectar is "the drink of the Gods.”

A quick rundown of Wordblender’s Nectar:
The journey of a flying insect is how the CD begins (“Cross-Pollination”). Flute and a funk groove is the foundation of “Bliss” and finds May intoning, “this is life, a moment, bliss, a lifetime this.” Mysticism and tribal trance carry “Inner Mountain Flute” into dark caves as a shaman leads us into a hallucinogenic trip. There’s a slow build up to the top of Tikal’s “Temple IV” (Guatemala) for a ceremony to meet alien ships in the eye of a hurricane. Humor is the key in “Montezuma,” a true story that takes RJ May from Nicaragua to Montezuma, Costa Rica. The funk is back for the tongue-in-cheek sexual innuendo of “Nectarine”. A slab of psychedelic reggae comes next in the form of “Tracers”. The instrumental “Morpho” precedes an exotic track called, “The Storm” that heats up sex and romance to new poetic heights. The great groove of “Chameleon” takes us to the end: a reading of “Stars and Sand” with only the ocean waves as backdrop (a perfect ending to a delectable album). The creative force of R J May and Pnapper have given the world another enjoyable experience. Nectar offers new discoveries with each listen.

Five Stars
This CD is worth 5 stars as far as I’m concerned. I only give 4 or 5 stars. When I was young my mother said that if you do NOT have anything good to say then don’t say nothing at all. So, if I buy a CD and I am sorry I did that…my response is to not rate it at all. If I am glad I got it I give it 4 stars. If I am overjoyed that I bought that CD it gets 5 stars.

It's not your average Wordblender (if such a thing exists...)
Mezclador de la palabra: Néctar.
This disc is a dreamscape... sounds of tropical breezes and hypnotic seas blend with Spanish guitar, rhythmic drumming, trumpet, saxophone, and chanting. Then the funk guitar, bass, and low-end keys kick in. Strange and beautiful... alternating between atmospheric (The Storm) and funky/groovy (Nectarine), with everything in between... stories and sounds from the Latin cultures south of us, this CD is almost visual in its expression.
Es asombroso!
