Robert H. Bennett & Damian Coccio - "Spontaneous Wind & Strings Spirit" (self-released 2003, CDR)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: September 2003
This is a live CD featuring Damian on bass guitar and Robert playing mainly American Indian flutes. The music is very meditative and some of it quite beautiful. The duo create some psychedelic textures at times as well. The CD was recorded live and most tracks are quite long, between 7-10 minutes. I really liked the "Dark Forest Journey". Sometimes the bass can sound like a guitar (toned down). Some of the tracks sound a bit haunting but never for too long. Very beautiful music.
Here is a quote from the band, "Our hope is that you gain a sense of well being and tranquility while listening to our music. May we all live in universal peace and harmony. Love and peace be with you and yours".
