New Age/World Instrumental Review: Joseph L Young- Ethereum

Release Date: October 2, 2016
Label: Independent

I listened to Joseph L Young’s Ethereum several times and in different ways. Joseph is a world master with the flute and he plays keyboards as well. To say he is multi-talented is the proper explanation to be sure. 


I was very intrigued while listening to this music through my speakers however once I heard it through my iPod and ear buds the effects were more impactful. This is new age and world music intersecting to become one powerful entity.
I felt as if I was right inside this beautiful space that the artist had created with his music. There are several factors that come into existence when you are in this frame of mind. On a personal level, I was going through some emotional and physical pain and I needed some relief. The opportunity to take another road presented itself and I took it.


Ethereum opened the gateway to healing and a meditative state where all my difficulties no longer existed. It was like a higher power focused in on me and waved a hand to change everything. The earthy tones that emanate from the native wooden flute and layers of gentle synthesizer, is like taking the best of the old and new worlds to another level. I think Mr. Young found a level of magnificence that comes by being tuned in to your surroundings and a strong spiritual connection. This I believe is an energy source that drives and inspires you. I have found this to be realized in many different stages of life and in my own personal development. In this case, it was relating to music which can be a most useful tool to open a door to get to the other side.

If you seek a better space, a different mindset or just casual relaxation through sounds then I would highly recommend Ethereum. The trade-off is more than fair; your complete undivided attention to the music and the gift of enlightenment is received.

Artists such as Joseph L Young know how to do it all. The process of writing, recording and producing an entire album is major accomplishment. If you have a multitude of abilities that you bring to the party to reach that goal, well that is just amazing. 


Listen to the sounds of the magical and mystical flute provided by one of the best, bliss is guaranteed.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
