A Gift To My Ears
Thoughts about Tunis Phantom by Carla Crow
The two new items were a treat for the ears. Tunis Phantom really got my attention as I'm also reading Philip Glass' Music Without Words. Was on the chapter about his connection to Ravi Shankar/Alla Rakha when your email arrived. When I got to the "place" in Tunis, where I figured out what you were doing, I heard it as a gift to my ears. The tabla sounds were so fine. I applaud this new work. Then, you turn it around completely with Stars Blossom, so soft and sweet. Music for the night. Keep it coming, Michael. Your art is my pleasure.
