Editorial Reviews

Distant peoples and distant places come together in this musical exploration of Native America and Tibet. The sweet voices of the Native American flutes of R. Carlos Nakai and the Tibetan flutes of Nawang Khechog blend together against the rich sonic palette created by the magical harp guitar, lyre and spiral clef guitar of William Eaton and the pulsing world beat percussion of Will Clipman

In A Distant Place is one of the most beautiful and astonishing albums I have ever owned. Every song is unique in its own way and every song title fits the song like a glove. R. Carlos Nakai, Newang Khechog, William Eaton , and Will Clipman unite together forming a cultural masterpiece. Every instrument from the Native American flute (performed by Nakai) to the spiral clef guitar (performed be Eaton) flows fluidly and vividly. The Album starts off with the amazing "A Gathering of Eagles". After hearing this song i knew i was in for a real treat. "My Wild Heart Sings" is one of the best songs I have ever heard. It's so in depth, in fact, that its hard to sit still. William Eaton's guitar playing is also brilliant. "Prayer For the New Millenium" is one of the most beautiful and relaxing songs i have ever heard. Nakai's chanting flows perfecty with the percussion and flute. "Riding the Wind" is a dead-on jam. I think this album was made for everyone and I think a majority of people from all over the world will love this album. This is incredible music.

Blend the Native American flute of Nakai with the Tibetan flutes of Khechog along with guitar and harp and you have a 'best of both worlds' effect which is original and haunting. The music comes alive and crosses cultures in a group which takes its ethnic roots a step further in a cross-cultural blend.

Nakai, Eaton, Clipman usually bring a chemistry that consistently spells musical enjoyment and creative substance. In this outing Tibetan flute player, Nawang Khechog joins to add some eastern flavor. For the most part, this CD delivers. The creativity and artistry are evident throughout. The only thing that detracts (at least for my tastes) is Khechog's chanting. It is not the chanting per se, but Khechog's delivery that bugs me. Nakai has employed this technique as well throughout his career, but his chanting seems to always be appropriately subdued and rhythmical. I can tolerate it to a point, but Khechog just seems to overdo it at times and thus the music takes a back seat. Other than that minor negative, this CD is a valuable addition to the collection. There are even a few tracks that are right up there with my favorite Nakai, Eaton, Clipman work, "Feather, Stone & Light".

Bottom line, to some the chanting will not be bothersome. To others, it may cause some distraction from the otherwise very creative and enjoyable music. Without Nhechog's chanting, this would be a solid 4 star effort.

Offered as my humble opinions,

In this cd you have the influence of two of the most spiritual cultures of the world, the Tibetans and the Indians of North America. Tibetan usually focus more in their inner peace, while The Indians try to be in harmony with Nature. Both things are actually the same. This two aspects are transmitted in the cd "In a Distant Place" through Nawang and Nakai.

Some of the best music ever made. Bridges all gaps.
Check out Ancient brotherhood. You WILL like them too.
"An Aztec harpist in Asia" is extra special.
