All Music Guide - Linda Kohanov
Billed as the album of original music created by Americans and Russians together, this album features Halley, Velez, guitarist Oscar Castro-Neves, and cellist Eugene Friesen collaborating on some selections with the Dmitri Pokrovsky Singers, a vocal ensemble rooted in the tradition of Russian village music. Traditional music from throughout Russia is mixed with Winter's Brazilian-influenced sound. There are also some beautiful instrumentals and, true to Winter's style, some natural sounds, most notably the calls of the Alaskan tundra wolf and Russian loon.

    Mesmerizing; sweeps you away!

    The lively, dissonant Russian folk-singing of the Dmitri Pokrovsky Singers is deftly accompanied by saxophonist Paul Winter, keyboardist Paul Halley, cellist Eugen Friesen and guitarist Oscar Castro-Neves, with Russ Landau on bass and Ted Moore and Glen Velez on percussion. The result is a fun, joyful blending of east and west, old and new. The intensity of the Russian tonalities is punctuated by whistles, shouts and even a few wolves and whales (which always sound great in duet with Winter’s fluid soprano sax), while the jazz consort smoothes out the dissonances, yielding to their unique character but blending them into compositions with an undeniably modern flavor. The resulting album is a triumph. Fans of world fusion music and innovative musical arrangement should not miss this one!

    Ancient Russia goes beyond New Age

    How do you hear the sound and spirit of music not compposed? Listen to this incredible album. In each piece you will hear the dramatic energy of ancient Russian folk music. It will lift you off your seat. And then, a magical transition. Paul Winter and his marvelous musicians pull out of Russia hidden sounds seamlessly blended with the powerful voices from time past. It is mind, spirit, and space altering. Close your eyes and enjoy.
