Editorial Reviews

The Musical Massage Series features instrumental works that immerse the listener in an ambiance of relaxation, deep healing and rejuvenation. This is music that was created to be heard, felt and absorbed. A sonic massage for the mind, body and soul.

Jorge Alfano and his World Ensemble play flutes, guitar, sitar, mbira, saxophone, fretless bass, violin, zither, didgeridoo and Tibetan bowls to create universal music that crosses all borders and musical styles. Drawing on the musical traditions of South America, Africa, Tibet, Japan, India and Australia, Alfano and friends create an inspiring global soundscape that eases stress and quiets the mind.

Jorge Alfano has been a professional musician for more than thirty years. A clinical hypnotherapist, Metaphysical Minister, and founder of the Sacred Sounds Institute, Jorge has appeared on over 400 recordings, including soundtracks for The Discovery Channel and National Geographic. He has performed with Astor Piazzolla, Mercedes Sosa, Richie Havens, Reuben Blades, Glen Velez, Steven Halpern, and many others. Jorge recently performed for His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Track List
1. Tibetan Moon (15:10)
An ethereal piece featuring Tibetan bowls, sitar, didgeridoo and flute that form a soothing environment for deep relaxation.
2. Siesta (15:30)
Latin-flavored guitar chords complemented by evocative and slowly unfolding melodies on soprano sax and fretless bass.
3. Rivers Of Zimbabwe (13:53)
A multi-dimensional layering of flutes, clarinet, rainstick and African mbiras that summons notions of a soothing waterfall in a lush jungle.
4. Affinity (15:21)
Relaxing zither accented by soothing fretless bass and violin that create a tonal atmosphere of serenity and peace.

Tonight, as a sort of end-of-the-year meditation, I decided to listen carefully to "Resonance" by Jorge Alfano's World Ensemble through headphones. After the last note faded, I felt compelled to write a review to let others know of the power of this music.

I'm an amateur guitar and flute player with a critical ear for "licks" or "riffs" in music that sound overly predictable. What impressed me the most about my listening experience tonight was that my awareness of this gorgeous slow-tempoed but ever-changing musical tapestry was strongly attracted to the sounds of the individual instruments. The concept of musical structure and my ongoing automatic assessment of the predictability of musical notes seemed trite (and all but disappeared) in comparison to the constantly buoyant and pure instrumental sounds that I heard. (For those of you who can't stand free-form style Ambient Music, please note that the music on "Resonance" is extremely well-composed and does indeed have structure. I don't know whether or not "Resonance" actually falls into the Ambient Music category. If it does, it's far more pleasing than any other Ambient Music I've ever heard.)

"Resonance" both showcases and transcends conventional and exotic instruments (bamboo flutes, fretless bass, Spanish and 12-string guitar, sitar, mbiras, rainstick, cymbals, zither, soprano sax, clarinet, violin, Australian didgeridoo, and Tibetan bowls). The music mesmerizes and profoundly calms. Three of the four songs on "Resonance" are approximately 15 minutes long. The shortest song lasts just under 14 minutes.

The producer, Jorge Alfano, plays bamboo flutes and fretless bass on several songs. He is an excellent flute player.

This CD has the same tracks as the "Massage" CD. This was not noticed until after both CDs were received.
