CD Review – Sleep: The Dreaming Flute, by Paul Adams

Flute master Paul Adams brings his considerable talents on woodwinds to bear on this grand, sweeping exploration of all the moods that can be achieved by the instruments.

The eleven-track CD is a soothing, relaxing collection of tunes that express everything from somberness and reflection to positive thinking and hopefulness. To achieve this effect, Adams utilizes a different Native American flute on each song.

The result is a sound that is not only calming and reassuring, but also reflective of the various sounds of indigenous culture and tradition.

Listeners looking for music to summon the muses of the world of sleep and take them to the soporific shores of the subconscious will find that Paul Adams’ woodwinds are the flutes that dreams are made of.
