" I made my first flute in the summer of 1977," Joseph Fire Crow begins the liner notes to his surprisingly textured and haunting collection of Northern Cheyenne flute songs, "Fire Crow." Few, if any, of contemporary music's most sincere performers-from Bob Dylan to Lucinda Williams and whomever else-can boast of the summer when they twined the strings along their first self-made guitars. This speaks to the heart of Fire Crow's achievement, as each song resounds with the urgency of a confession to the universe. There are no neon hairdos or flashy synthesizers gunning for pop-chart glory here. This is music made with a man's hands and residing within him, a music of the sort of honesty and integrity that eludes the vast majority of listeners in modern western culture.
"Image is everything in this game," Mick Jagger suggested in a recent launch.com story. Well, if Fire Crow's austere instrumental ruminations attest to anything, it is that this is no game, and that though we are listeners bound by an age in which image seems to routinely trump substance, still there are artists for whom music has never been about anything less than the blood, the bones, and an open wound from which to speak. That is not to say that all good music derives from affliction, and certainly Fire Crow has its many moments of rapture and awe, but nothing could be closer to the truth in the case of Mr. Fire Crow, a member of the "Lame Deer" tribe of Northern Cheyenne Native Americans whose affection for music arose from so much penury and loss.
"The music was beautiful to my ears, yet it scared me," Fire Crow recalls from the war dances of his childhood, "There was much poverty and depression at the time. The sound of the flute touched my heart where there was much pain and uncertainty.

Native American flute music has become quite trendy over the past ten years or so, and a lot of it has been almost mass-produced to satisfy the demand of the 'world music' crowd. However, Joseph Fire Crow can't be stereotyped and he stays true to his traditions; these are some very powerful works. I don't think there are any single pieces that can be called 'the best' here, they're meant to be listened to together as a whole.

Joseph Fire Crow is the best among all Native American Flute players. The flute becomes a living matter. Never heard a flute that is so lively like dancing all the time. Very organic and energetic ! A must have collectible CD.

Joseph Fire Crow has tapped into the native flute traditions, but he does not exploit native traditions. The flute gives an almost haunting effect and calls to mind the indigenous peoples' long and horrifying experience with white contact, yet these songs preserve the reliance on music and prayer. They are positive and peaceful, but they can be sad at the same time. Fire Crow has mixed the emotions to create a haunting tale of native existence. Excellent music!!

This music has changed my life. It is a direct connection to the universe we inhabit. The vocal work is excellent and the overall feel of the album is elemental. I think no one who hears this album can fail to be moved.
