All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
On keyboardist/flutist Nicholas Gunn's debut album, you spend an Afternoon in Sedona exploring the spirit of the magnificent Southwestern desert landscape.

    One of the Best Ever

    All of Nicholas Gunn's 9 CD's are outstanding. It is difficult to favor one over another, but Sacred Fire is close to being the best. It is a must add to your Nicholas Gunn collection. To hear Nicholas play the flute is an uplifting experience. If you ever get the chance to hear a live performance, do so. His CD's are outstanding, but to hear him in person is even better. Until you get so lucky, make sure you add Sacred Fire and all his other CD's to your collection. You will not be sorry.
