February 28, 2013 – Bruce Mitchell came out of the gate as a Narada artist back in 1987. That was when New Age was fairly new and exciting. Since then many of those big labels have been sold or, simply, folded but New Age is far from deceased. Just like the related genre of Smooth Jazz most of the terrestrial radio stations have flipped formats only to be reborn on internet radio. I played Mitchell's two Narada albums on Terrestrial radio in the late 80's and now he's found a home on our very own New-Age/Smooth Jazz combo station WhatsInvisible.com.
On this follow up to 2009's 'New Earth Goddess' Mitchell proves why he's a deserving artist that has survived what could have been an Armageddon of a format. In fact, it's because of acts like him that this genre is still relevant. Mitchell is a spiritual musician in every sense of the word. His music will not only make ones mood climb but his intent is clearly to make our experience better.
The opening track 'Opus of Compassion' is a soft whisper of a song. Treading lightly with a unstrained tone of positivity. It's a gorgeous piece.
The title track follows the same tip-toe angelic whimsical feel. It's one of those gentle songs to encourage your shoulders to lower and unwind.
'Aeracura' is an Enya-like little ditty. We've all heard of those great driving tunes, well, this is the opposite. Perfect for stressful moments or mediation.
'Water Spirit' is another great visit to that supportive spiritual well. It's another reminder of the intent of the project.
As in previous CD's Ron Korb handles bass, flute and whistle while Mitchell's piano playing serves as the projects main force. These two have tapped into an incredible synchronistic vibe. - by John Beaudin
