Overview

Woodlands is a CD of largely acoustic soundworlds by Eric Tingstad, Nancy Rumbel, and David Lanz. It is gentle and ambient. The sound design incorporates the finest efforts of these gifted artists. Tingstad's guitars are, as always, smooth; Rumbel's winds are silken; and Lanz's piano is mellow. The combination creates a pastoral soundscape, complete with organic and elegant textures. This CD, while not the best work of Tingstad & Rumbel, is still very strong and enjoyable. It will appeal to fans of Lisa Lynne, Kitaro, Gary Stroutsos, and Jonn Serrie.

How an album can grow on you: I listened to this album for several years before it suddenly hit me what a lovely tune Marigold is - a Tingstad composition for oboe and piano. The less-is-more chamber arrangements are surprisingly full, especially on the rugged Oaks, and on Bamboo (a new arrangement of Tingstad's solo tune Chehalis). Cottonwood and Cypress are also full-bodied tunes full of pleasant surprises. Tingstad and Rumbel's usual evocative, atmospheric sound is handsomely augmented by David Lanz's keyboard skills, and David stands out on his own composition, the closing Madrona. This album is a genuine classic, not just of so-called New Age music, but of all contemporary music. The Tingstad & Rumbel guitar-and-wind sound is actually a modern American version of classical chamber music, more accessible but still built on a rock-solid musical foundation.

Remember when the genre ''New Age'' meant more than ubiquitous, spacey keyboard music? I have owned Woodlands since it came out in vinyl. It is elegant chamber music, yet much more meets the ear when you get to know Tinstad and Rumbel's music. Its a rare thing, in any genre, to have an album that you never grow tired of playing.
