Frank LaRue Owen There is a faint line where music crosses over into ritual; where rhythm, initially, destabilizes the usual parameters of mind (so often firmly-affixed to ordinary reality), relaxes them, and eventually ushers the listener into new dimensions and levels of experience. The album does that. It is a creativity-kindler, a stress-reliever, a dream-conjurer. This music is medicine. Ride the Smoky Rainbow.
