Review

Acoustic guitarist Eric Tingstad has been working with English horn and oboe player Rumbel since 1985 for the Narada label, and a wide array of their work is collected on this generous 2-program collection. Styles range from Celtic to Spanish to rural Americana, and often touch on the Middle Eastern and exotic in flavor (as in the almost Arabian lilt to "La Fogota"). Conjuring warm emotions and memories, these tracks are all amazing, with the gorgeous and evocative "Empire Builder" being a true highlight. Tingstad's guitar work is so warm and inviting and Rumbel's English horn so sweet and radiant it feels like the sun is shining no matter where one may be listening. "Talk of Angels" opens with a lilting duet of piano and acoustic guitar whispering to each other in sad farewell, until Rumbel comes in like a healing angel. Even fans who already have their Grammy-winning ACOUSTIC GARDEN (from which several of these tracks originate) will want to take the plunge on this, as the discs include tracks culled from solo albums ("Lullabye," "Monangaheela") and old Narada compilations ("Lo Que Tu Quiseras" and "Crow and Weasel").
