5 stars One of the most elegant and smooth jazz albums i ever hered

Oregon jazz band from USA, created a very unique album in my opinion with a lots of unusual instruments for this kind of music, like Sitar, Tabla, Flugelhorn and Oboe and give a new dimension to the jazz music. Of course there are traditional instruments like giutar or bass, but without drums, only persussions. So, the music is quite calm, but very complex in places, you don't have to play 100 notes per second like Mahavishnu Orchestra, you don't have to had latino or flamenco passages like DiMeola, you don't have to had violins combined with country music like Dixie Dregs to leave something at the highest quality, that doesn't mean i minimalize the bands i mention before, far for me the thought. Despite the calm orentation of the band they are really skillfull and not many quite understand this kind of jazz, ypu have to had a good background to appreciate the quality of this record as this album deserve. I really appreciate this album to the maximum. 5 stars to this treasure of jazz music. It's like a journy to another realm to me. P.S. - Absolute fabulous cover, that describes everything is inside the album. Best tracks all, but one of them is superb Cane Fields.
