. . . and Spring will Return . . . With Her Usual Flair. . .







*************************************************************************

The long intro took us, the listeners on a long trip into the places of wind dreams all over the Universe . . . . some places exotic and some familiar . . .  Beautiful! The wind blows through the entire album . . . measuring our reactions to these sentimental melodies . . . giving us the freedom to feel joy and peace.




********************************************************

Piano improvisation is always so expressive and emotional . . . a voice that speaks from the soul of the musician . . . always a treat and always unique.  These pieces were no exception. Extraordinary!



***********************************************************
SoLaRiS always writes such beautiful, dreamy music . . . it's like being IN a "Sanctuary" . . . a place of hope, dreams and safety. Always wonderful music to play in the backdrop of life .. . let it flow around you like swirls of cool water . . .. full of bubbles and life . . .




************************************************************

Quiet and dense . . . the music leaves spaces in its wake with feelings of sublimity. . .  psychedelic and drifting slowly, it ebbs and flows like a tranquil tide of ether . . . rolling across the languid infinity of our minds . . . and an extraordinary guitar chatter . . . awakens our visions.




************************************************************

Smoothly energizing, this music flows from one end of the album to the other, encompassing the Universe with the vital capacity of an ethereal spirit . . . and driving the listener into the far reaches of their dreams.




*************************************************************

Music and video by Dom the Bear: (Alpha Wolf wolfpack park inside Mercantour mountains. Musics copyright Dom The Bear "Living life for good " and "Landing off the ground ")

The video and music are relaxing . . . Whilst you watch the wolves contentedly romp around or relax, the music seeks to guide the emotions, delving into the spirit with thoughtfulness, and the listener begins to feel at one with the wolves.

Walking in the Mist . . .

At the Oregon Coast

********************************************************************************

The kind of chill that gives you wings and frees your tears to be raindrops as you fly . . . Smooth and delicate with an inner power that fills your hollow heart with hope . . .




********************************************************************************

This is a Jamendo popular pop . . . nice electronic dubstep . . . which I am enjoying. Great vocals and flow to the music . .  uplifting and dreamy . . . these guys could be very well loved if presented on a stage . . . Wonderful!



********************************************************************************


This is quite nice for traveling music . . . or dreaming about traveling . . . where ever you wish . . . into space or down the road . ..  move your legs, or your spaceship . . . This music is chill/jazzy and very nice.



*********************************************************************************


The music, while electronic, has interesting quirks, lifts and swirls, which pulls the listener into the realm of the exotic dream . .. relaxing or adventurous . . . Peaceful and flying high. The singers leave a captivating imprint through the music and help intertwine the mental visuals with a touch of enticing sensuality . . . This music is downtempo, exotic, dreamy and compelling . . . with poetic lyrics weaving in and out of the sound stream.  The artist has left us a generous album to explore . . . allowing the music to fill our environment, guiding us in our own artistic endeavors, flowing like life through our souls . . .




********************************************************************************


Bringing original rock, to the listening ears . . . with creativity and some sense of the world lighting the way, Avi Rosenfeld has created a masterpiece . . . Loved the album cover which is a new style of presentation for this artist and his group. The album sounds professional with exceptional mastering and the wonderful music is full of life with an exciting collection of loud rocking instruments, expressive and an overall effect redolent of talent and applied knowledge. The vocals are admirably articulate, sometimes intimate in the listening ears and other times shouting, screaming from a distance. 




*******************************************************************************

Un-melodic and sonorous, sizzling, glitchy . . . flowing with the ripple of bells sparkling in the deep pool of sound . . . this album is full of surprises, like a treasure box of sound . . . The elements of the tracks take the listener places . . . into the depths of a cave or the furthest galaxy . . . into the heavens or a city alley . . . echoing with lost dreams and fantasies of life . . . amazingly enticing, frightening, enjoyable, dark and bright . .  very creative!



********************************************************************************

Beautifully composed, with the warm honeyed tones of an emotional guitar predominating . . . Click on the title of the album and go to the page where there is a description of the naming and creating of this lovely little, altogether too short, album.  But, mostly, lay back and enjoy the feeling of the music, as it peacefully washes over you . . .

Season of Dreams

Dreaming in the Sun
*******************************************************

Deeply atmospheric and dreamy . . . this well chilled music keeps you energized yet has that cool flow which envelopes the mind with strokes of color and shape . . . music for the creative, or as background to soften the edges of life . . .




*******************************************************


Bell-like and light . .  full of glints and reverberation . . . uplifting yet relaxing at the same time . . . like sunglow and starlight this music is visionary. . . Some pieces subtly diverge into the Orient . . . with a restrained dance . . . The music inspires. My only complaint is that they are too short . . . oh well, I take what I can get . . .



*******************************************************


These pieces take you on down by the water's edges . . . the lights glint and dance from the heavens. Drops of rain like fire or fairies . .  rising and falling, dimpling the receptive surfaces of the water . . . a certain magic exposes itself within the luminosity or darkness of the music . ..  like still water, quiet and peaceful, yet dynamic.



*********************************************************


Great flows and beats in this wonderful electronic house . .. I either found myself dreaming or dancing to these peaceful pieces . . . Enjoyed tremendously.



********************************************************


Loved the name of this artist so much, I just had to listen to the whisperings of this ambient wind, as it sorted out my thoughts and lifted up my wings so I could flow and float in the peacefulness and dream . . . 



************************************************************

Calming and peaceful . .  Like the gentle talk of voices as you drift off to sleep . . . connecting with the great being . . . and feeling loved . . . These pieces feature meditative vocals, the viola and guitar . . . which play well together . . . bell-like sounds dancing, gently, around in the center . . . like a heart beat . . . like a warm fire . . .

Paris, 2010 from my hotel window





********************************

Great rock beats here . ..  . play for your background energies . .. or parties. Brings back fond memories of the dance bands and rock groups from my days . . . when we would dance the night away . . . the strength and passion of the ages.





*********************************

This piece has a nice long flow, taking the listener on a pleasant journey. It's great as background, with a little energy, yet with a day-dreamy appeal.




*********************************
This music has so much power . ..  great listening . ..  beautiful chill.
Using everything from the celestial harp, to the rocking electric guitar . ..  to the whispering flute . . I find the music in this album, creative enough touch all emotions . . . to energize the spirit and

*********************************


From chill to electric guitar . . . somehow it all flows together . . . like space and time . . . like water across the face of the earth . . . like dreams from one soul to another . . . Music that fills the heart and flies to Heaven.

Music for My Heart


LadyBug on SeedPods






***********************************

The piano always thrills my heart . ..  giving me the chance to rise up on the wings of joy, passion . .  peace . . . NICOCO has offered the listener and exceptionally well done album . . . Listen and listen and listen . .  your heart will open . . .




**********************************

The delicious hang drum dominates these pieces . . . keeping our attention, yet letting our dreams fly on the breezes of the melodies . . .




***********************************

The music of Sonic Mystery = Magic . . . beautiful and relaxing . . . a certain flow that brings in whiffs of dreams and instrumental sounds drifting in and out . ..  beautiful!




***********************************

Like a poem about the ticking away of time . . . 
this music is creative and generous
with moments which are timeless
and times . . . momentous . . .





**********************************

So sensitive and tender towards the angst of the day . . . this music is quiet,
peaceful and thoughtful.  Beautiful music which calms the ravaged soul.




***************************************

Love these triphop beats . . . really captivating . . . catchy . . .
I'm especially attracted to the beats and the rhythm . . . 
and sometimes the chants reminded me of distant ancestral
dreams and songs . . Ethereal sometimes . . . strength beneath
the wistful voices . . .  WOW . .  I really like this album! I just wish
it were longer . . .



***************************************

Abstract music . .  sounds . . . from vitality to draining . .. 
perhaps depending on the mood of the listener. . . 
or the droning voyage into the darkest regions of space . . 
a universe enlightened by a stunning ring of glowing gaseous balls
like gems on a string . .  they beg for understanding . . 
enveloping us in vaguely understood dreams . .  hazy with
ancient memories . . .




***************************************

Very nice electronic music . . .  foot tapping worthy and basically a bright
experience . . great vocal placements . . . The music gives a wide range
of feelings . . . from energized to dreamy . . . from wistfully sentimental to
happy, joyous . . .




***************************************

Mystical and dreamy . . . I find myself floating through an unknown land ... ...
a place of fantasy, echoing passages . . . 
a distant place of hope and fear . . . a misty place to be alone
and contemplate the graciousness of existence . .. 
(I found ancient, deserted castles and forests in my dream . . . 
with an ocean steaming gently against the shores, I believe
I was on an island on a distant planet . . . a far away galaxy.

Magical Times







***********************************
A tinge of the East mixed with a little folk style, perhaps a little jazziness creeps in . . . interesting instruments, flashy percussion and dreamy tunes . .. The music is so animated it creates mental visions of brightly costumed dancers . . . energizing, unique, and happy making . . . a lot of thought and creativity was put into this album to make it so lovely, including the artwork.





*************************************

Such beautifully chilled music to calm us down and relax . .  set as background and
find yourself smiling on occasion.





*************************************

Avi Rosenfeld has a magnificent rock and roll band . . . a fullness of music
and excellent lyrics. . . the vocalist with  a bluesy sound . . . strong appeal to
get those feet tapping . . . 




*************************************
The spirit of the falling leaf
as it dances over the breezes . . . 
the sun warms the colors even more,
shining through . . .  creating pleasant tapestries
and cathedrals through the trees . . .
The music takes me there
as I waft in the cool gusts of music
and swirl lazily with my dreams . . .





***************************************

Wavering pathways, littered with stone 
and crevasses;
smooth is the way . ..  jagged at times
and steep . . .
a walk through the music
full of peace and passion . . .
trauma . . . and endings . .. 
ancient youth . . .
our heart beats with each pluck
of the thread . . 




****************************************

So beautiful . . . like the poetic end of a lovely film . . 
dreamy and meaningful . . . yet romantic and full of charm.
These pieces are long and full of wistful dreams and celestial visions . .. 



**************************************

Ramp it up a bit with these "Communications" .. .. fast moving
and alien in sound . ..  interesting, unique and energizing.

Sing Like There is No Tomorrow .. ..

Yard ornament


*************************************************

Super electronic music .  .  . driving my energies and my mood until I feel
like a shining light . .  Cool sounds . . . great flow and perfect balance.




***********************************

Aufklarung is an iconic favorite on Jamendo, and this album will answer
why . . . Follow the emotions, flavors, temperaments, dreams, and vision
of his music, 18 tracks, as you listen . . .



*********************************

Love these bluesy tunes with the vocals, a rough whisky male voice, giving an atmosphere of a smoky club, and an amiable gathering of souls shrouded in darkness and warm chatter. The band's soul gives off a foot tapping energy. . . the electric guitar and drums so entwined. The lyrics are melancholic, perfect for these edgy melodies. Overall an excellent listen.




*********************************

Rune visits the dark side with an ease, slipping sideways into the unknown places of
quietness, introspection and dreams . . . Though dark, his visions have hope, fantasy and
brilliant shafts of light, plummeting like angels into the obscure, shadowy worlds he creates
through music and the scratchy ephemeral sounds of old records covered in dusty dreams.



**********************************

Easy listening, bluesy, relaxing . . . perfect for background sounds to ease the tensions
of the day yet invigorate the senses.





**********************************

Drones and mutters, sounds like thunder . . . whispering music
receding . . . conceding .  .  . this kind of music is perfect for
headaches and dreams . . . Paint a picture or write a poem as you
listen . . . the music flows through like spirits in sunshine . . .

Traveler






***********************************
A bit of minimalistic wind to soothe your hot brain as you struggle through this life . . . wondering where the pathway is leading and when it will end . . . sounds that drone and moan and whisper like the gods of the heavens and the stars . . . Dreams of flying through space . . . naked and warm.



**********************************************

A dance, a trance . . . a dreamy mood . . . alive and endless are the sounds from Dom the Bear . . . his albums always full of drama and tenderness and he tells the story of his art through words and electronic vibrations.



**********************************************

Don't know which tune I loved best . . .  expressive and creative, they are all good! Give "Bodies of Mind" a listen.



*********************************************


Chill and peaceful . . . this music comes to calm your mood, yet makes you smile.




*********************************************

This concerto would be perfect featured in an intense movie . . . 
The music is deeply passionate, yet restrained. I particularly loved the piano's provisions which take the listener through the depths and heights of this mental adventure like gentle or mighty steps through the Universe just out the door . . . 




**********************************************

A long trip, across the Universe, would sound like this . . . long, sustained and full of restrained 
wildness .  .  . Dreamy and cooling . . . like water rippling down to the sea . . . while stars sing
and the heart shatters .  .   . Lovely . . . There are depths to space .  . like falling into a bottomless ocean . . . a buoyancy . .  lifting and cradling.




*********************************************

Abundant in drama and imagined long travels to exotic lands . . . the music is expressive and creative, varying in style and energies . . . Overall a beauty.



**********************************************

I've been listening to this album for days. . . it suits my needs to having something soothing . . . a balm to the ragged edges of my soul . . . I love it! I set it to play in my classroom and the atmosphere becomes like calming waters . . . flowing like liquid over the rugged ground . . .

Going Places . . .



Detail from: Chihuly Garden and Glass



************************
Life is but a dream
our days are scattered stars;
our pathways wander and
like tears do flow
down deep and endless cliffs . . .
waterfalls
disappearing into the salty sea . .

*************************
This beautiful tune . . .
Probably one of the best  yet by our graciously generous GingerTom . . .
Poems and stories of his, renown, 
and his gorgeous music
the best in town.




***********************

My heart is a tempest
soothed by mighty winds
the colors of the rainbow sets
the knowledge of my destiny . . .
to follow the fragile butterfly
as she creates an eternal breeze .. .

Distant memories,
bright like campfires
on the edges of the sea. . .
redolent
of smokey cedar
drifted in from exotic worlds
a memory of their own

************************
Acoustic guitar, so warm and melodic
an enticing dream . . . resounding
as sound waves swirl around the listener's ears




***********************

My heart is tempted
to bleed for the lost and lonely
and then finds itself
vested in drama and dreams
not of my own making . . . 
following the pathway of
the storyteller . . .


**********************

These are great sounds for film and movies. Dramatic and
smooth . . . full of emotion and quest . . . beauty and peace.
Some of these pieces were quite heart touching . . .
sentimental and divine.




***********************

Beauty like bells 
redolent of sunshine and
dreams . . .
magnified joy
and tears unrefined . . .
music embellishes 
like embroidery
on the edges of my mind.

***********************
These beautiful Kalimba sounds are so endearing
and relaxing . . . simple melodies
that let the brain dream




************************


Dear sweet piano . . . with a voice so mellow
and holding so much depth
of character . . 
always so enticing and full of mood . . .
dreamy
and insightful . . .

Let's Listen . . .


Item featured in Kennedy School, Portland Oregon





***************

Let's listen to Miss Lucy . . . quiet, almost minimalistic; sometimes ethereal and dreamy . . . sometimes warm and deep . . . but always something passionate in the spirit of the music . . . Here is her entire playlist on Jamendo which includes two albums: "Oldies 2011-2014" and  "Intrusion EP." We hope to hear more from her.





*******************************

Let's listen to the various styles of rock, as articulated by the instrumentals and guitars of Autoandimat (an interesting but impersonal name). The music has a variety of flavors: from the sublimely exotic, to the dramatic film themes, to some delightful bluesy rocking guitar. As of today, the artist has installed five albums on Jamendo. 






******************************

Let's listen to some French Celtic NewAge Folk . . . I love the vocals here . . . sentimental and warm. Very beautiful! This artist has several albums on Jamendo and this is just the latest. He specializes in the Celtic Harp sounds . . . and his harp is divine . . . perhaps he is an angel among us.



******************************

Let's listen to the compelling, unique sounds of Septi . . . as this artist unravels our emotions and dreams within the music . . . There are more albums to explore . . . hop on over to his page and find them there, on Jamendo.

Breath in the Music . . .



Two fisherment talking on a bench by Christian Krohg


*********************************************

Soothing and sentimental . . . this music is like honey to the soul . . . a balm to the excesses of life. Gorgeous music for relaxation or something to let the brain think and be . . . to read and dream. 



****************************

Art Owens is one of my favorite jazzists . . . with such a handle on his trumpet and the other instruments he plays that it just takes me away . . . as I listen. He still has a few bits on Jamendo, but is using Soundcloud, now, as his way to share his new music and collaborations. Extraordinarily wonderful stuff!







******************************

A new favorite of mine, Olexa Kabanov, prepares some beautiful music for us. It alternates between worldly, exotic and ambiental . . . dreamy and often incorporating the instruments of the Orient bringing along the flavors of exotic regions and long ago stories that come to mind.
Let yourself float over the glassy seas as your soul flies through the brilliant skies . . . feel healed and whole . . . Here are three, nine track albums . . . enjoy!

Alive and New . . .


Street in Venice by John Singer Sargent



******************************************************************


The light shines through . . . even in the dark of night . . .  
in the heart and the active mind . . . the music leads
and guides . . . and takes us on a voyage of adventure
and dreams . . . 




***********************


As much as I love the music, here I love the story more . . . the tale is the thing so the listener must go read the story, while listening to the music . . . it's like a movie of the mind! Quite clever!:

https://www.jamendo.com/en/list/a138701/arthur-and-the-quest-for-the-dragon-s-breath


*****************************************************************************

Jazzy . . . smooth and dreamy with a lift of life,
and the dancing feet of the piano
. . . Roberto Daglio gives the listener's environment
a whiff of cool breath and a tang of underlying steam 
with a bit
of snappiness . . . 
tap tap tapping to the beat . . .
Funky and bluesy . . . 




*****************************************************


Electronic explorative environments . . . driven by the beat of a mechanized vibe,

acidic with vision, and empowered by intuitive offshoots of sound . . . the music flashes with
light and sound . . . deep and magical. . . . inspiring.







******************************************************


Alive and well . . . Atomic Cat leads me to the heights of trance . . . and the dance

invades my soul . . . The music can be wild or chilled . . . swirling around the listening ear . . .
it envelopes the heart with energy and life. The only reason I ever came to love trance was because of Atomic Cat . . . Brilliant!






Set to play and watch your day come alive . . .. or your night . . . divine . . .

Dragonflies and Music . . .




A dragonfly I happened to meet . . . 


*********************************************

This composition, by Cloudjumper, grows as it progresses . . . from the smallest tinkling of bells, breathing quietly into the atmosphere, as if it were a child busy at dreaming . . . eventually flying and accumulating deep emotion as it becomes a dramatic orchestral creation.




**********************************************

Pierre-Marie dreams of Ireland . . . it's beautiful landscapes and especially the people
. . .  and his visions and the depths of his soul's light comes through his gorgeous music . . . a lovingly composed piece . . . beautiful, passionate and graceful!




And this jazzy piece is exquisite with drama and angst floating along with a bluesy undertone. . .
alive with sentiment, peace and love:


There are several exciting new pieces by Pierre-Marie, one of my favorite artists on Jamendo . .  better go check out his stuff:  https://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/338935/coedes-pierre-marie

***********************************************

Esther's music is graceful and sentimental, with an elegance of artistry which is remarkable
in this talented young woman's music. These compositions are great for background or would be wonderful in a film or dramatic play. Although a variety of styles and instruments are used, there is a consistency and flow to the entire album as there is to each piece. My favorite was "Red Desert" which was quite unique . .  flutes with a musical sound like water and the passing of a train like entity . .  made me think of Native American songs . . . dreamlike quality and mystical.  Very creative!






************************************************

Be ready to dance . . . or fill your wings with the wild breezes of the bear . . . and fly . . . Dom the Bear is taking us into the mountains with him . . . Sharing his vision and expertise and talent as his music sails past our ears . . and we soar with his care and guidance. The mountains have their own voices as this music tries to express the glory and wonder of the heights of this world, scraping the edges of the eternal sky. I especially liked the exotic bells of "Strange Bells." In the end we can rest as we picnic in the grass, listen to the birds and dream that we are there . . . Nice work Dom!

The Quiet Mind Listens . . .

Tea Leaves By William McGregor Paxton



******************************

So nice . . . set to play and enjoy this easy-listening, smooth flowing yet danceable music . . . 
Rich, 
like the rippling water of a cool lake at the end of a long day . . . 
reflective and gentle, 
yet full of life just
beneath the surface . . . 
Watch the dance of the dragonfly
tap your feet to the music . . . 
and the sparks of the fire
as they reach the sky . . .



******************************

I have raved about Julien Boulier so often that I won't say much about this album . .  One of his latest, except that I love it as much as I do the others.  I find that the spaces he leaves in each piece is like
a window
through which the spirit can fly . . .
or the dreamer can perceive the depths
of the sky . . . 
where one can find the meaning
of the soul . . .
where love abounds . . . 
where life lives . . .



******************************

Sean sings and Yvalain plays his rocking guitar . . . so hot . . 
so alive . . . Takes me back to those old days when the blues
were folding into electric guitar rock music . . . So exciting and
so intoxicating. 



**********************************************

This is simply beautiful . . . the delicate piano, guitar and vocals . . . 
like most folk music, were peaceful and gentle . . . full of tender sentiment and romance.
These recordings were live and thus sometimes were heard some external sounds, but the
music, compositions and melodies are meritorious and this album is definitely well worth a listen.
These singers have voices like balm to the heart . . .




**********************************************

Dark, droning and ambient .  .  . sounds that are barely there . . .
otherworldly, yet temporal . .  striking . . . and dramatic . . .
 . . . the flesh cries in the burning darkness . . 
remission . . . redemption . . . and lostness . . .
somewhere in the direction we seek . . . 





***********************************************

Dramatic and visual . . . this music is easy on the ears and the spirit . . .
I think it could also be used in a film or video as background music.
These pieces were created with thoughtfulness and creativity.



************************************************

I love Jorisma's music . . . it just sweeps me away with that clear,
crystal clean electronic energy . .. You can dance . .  you can work . . 
your brain is alive and you feel connected to the vision  . .. to the
dream . . . There is also the possibility that it could heal the brokenness
in the listener . . . so give it a try . . . let the music help you fly . . .

Alone in the Music . . .



"Automat" by Edward Hopper


****************************

From relaxing casual, to jazzy/ bluesy rock, or wistfully classical . . . This electronic music, especially that expressive guitar,  made my rainy day a delightful one.






****************************

This artist always posts such beautiful music, commanding, talented and articulate . .. A piano quietly comments, gently and with atmospheric sounds . . .  the vocals and other instruments dream and expound in their special ways to add to each brush stroke, each colorful nuance as the music progresses. These compositions are like classical paintings . . . always so much to note and so emotional, full of life and color  . . . with beauty rampant. . . It is important to note that though Julien Boulier publishes so much music, he puts great care and creativity into each unique piece.



************************************************

Wonderful sounds . . . sometimes experimental and interesting; wild or calming; expressive and unique .. .  but always a really wonderful listen.  I especially love the acoustic guitar, as in the last track, with its mellow voice and peaceful jazzy melody . . . 




************************************************

I was happy as I listened to these piano pieces . . . so sublime and whimsical . ..  with delightful images and heart touching fervor and sentiment . . . they found a place in my permanent piano collection . . . 



******************************

As I listened to this long artistic soft rock piece .. .. the clouds began to part and a few golden rays touched my environment and warmed my spaces . . . but the music feels exotic and mysterious, dark and quiet . . . a dreamy pace with visions of quiet rain touching the flesh and flowing into the sea . . . This was beautiful and made me want to listen to more from this musician. 



*******************************

Popping and upbeat . . . this music got right to the heart of the matter . . . dance through your rainy days . . . dance through the dark . . . and give voice to the joys of the rain as it beats to the tempo  . . .
