5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime and Delightful November 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This music for expanded awareness compiled by radio luminary Roy Tuckman is a feast of sounds, all different, complex, simple, and sublime. I love that an image of Xad Xiadg, the protector of musicians, graces the front of this CD. He sets the spirit for music, as a freedom and a healing power,to be expressed. As you listen, open your heart and all your energy to these tones that will heal. (I'm especially moved by the selection Zen Moments.) I gave a copy of this CD to a friend undergoing chemotherapy to listen to on her headset in the hospital. You're in for an adventure. Let Roy Tuckman's celebration of sound sweep you away.

5.0 out of 5 stars A COMPANION TO MEDITATION AND CELEBRATION April 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The name of this CD (and of the first selection) is Fiesta. A fiesta is a celebration...in this instance obviously a celebration of the Divine within Nature and within us.
The title track immediately sets one to thinking of a great gothic cathedral with Handel or Bach being performed on one of those gigantic organs. (At least, this is the effect it has on me). And from this one's inner vision almost naturally flows out from the concept of a cathedral built by human hands to "nature's cathedrals": the mountains. And especially, perhaps, the mountains at dawn as the rising sun first begins to illuminate the sweeping vistas around and below.
But I am not going to discuss each and every selection...I would not be so self-centered as to believe that you really care how the music affected me.
But I must just say a word about the final piece "Earth Vision". This was the first composition I ever heard by Mr. Tuckman. I first heard it about eleven years ago now...as background to an excerpt from a talk by Alan Watts. This was on an FM radio station in LA California. KPFK, to be precise. Where Roy hosted the all night program "Something's Happening" from Midnight to Six AM Monday through Thursday Nights. (He's still there and still doing that, by the way). And whatever else "Earth Vision" may mean to me I only know that for me it exemplifies the composer himself...his gentle spirit and insightful vision.
Would I recommend this CD? Yes, I would. And I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Music for the Planet November 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I highly recommend this CD for addition to any collection.
Majestic - Pure - a serious work that any lovers of Classical
and electronic music should appreciate. The fact that Roy Tuckman composed and recorded this almost 3 decades ago and that it should finally be released now will definitely add the heading of "Timeless" to this deep and sincere effort.
Also a feat in it's production was the use of synthesisers and sequencers at a time when both were in infant stages compared to today's technology.
I only hope we don't have to wait as long for the follow up !

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and ethereal December 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
unique and ethereal, this cd is for the meditative moments in your week when
you decompress and let your thoughts go. this music is not for the
analytical or structured moments in your life; don't expect to be awed by it
the way symphonic pieces may affect you, or appreciate its nuances as in
chamber music, or be moved by the beat of rock or jazz; let it flow and fade
in and out of your consciousness as you drift. enjoy it in the times you
just want to be.
