A little different Mickey - but still very good
on November 8, 2007
As a percussionist and a Mickey Hart fan, I didn't need to listen to the sound clips to know I was going to buy & like this new CD.
This album has a slightly more updated, new-agey/spacey vibe to it than Mickey's earlier projects; Planet Drum and At The Edge. (And I'm totally cool with that.) I think it sounds better, a better mix, better production.... something I can't put my finger on..than Planet Drum or At the Edge.
I've been buying many different CD's in this genre as of late, and in listening to Global Drum Project, I heard pieces that were reminiscent of Jim DiSpirito's "Big Silence," Glen Velez's "Rhythm of the Chakra's," and Jim Donovan's "Drum the Ecstatic." Amazingly, I also caught a hint of Pink Floyd on the song "Under one Groove."
Highly recommended to anyone that appreciates world percussion music.
My only beef is that it's not an ultra long album. It definitely left me wanting for more.
