All Music Guide - Robert Taylor
A Thanksgiving recording? That's what the folks at Windham Hill have proposed. Whether or not the theme truly makes sense is quickly made irrelevant by the beautiful performances. Of particular note is the stunning performance of "We Gather Together" by Paul McCandless, Philip Aaberg, and Michael Manring. The entire set is a consistently beautiful listen that can be, and should be, enjoyed year round.

    A Soulful quiet sound...

    This CD really lets your mind rest and wander to all for which you are thankful. Good fall sounds including nice arrangements of the popular Simple Gifts and We Gather Together.
