CD Review – Inhale Slowly, by Tim White and Joe Paulino

On their latest album, Tim White and Joe Paulino set out to provide a musical environment in which listeners can accomplish the action of the title. The duo’s efforts are right on the target.

Using the ragas of classical Indian music as a starting point, White combines his ethereal bamboo flute, floating acoustic guitar, and evocative Indian instruments including sitar and bowed-stringed esraj with Paulino’s lush synthesizers and majestic grand piano.

The result is a calming and therapeutic expanse of sound that gently removes the noise of hectic daily life and tunes the mind into peace and tranquility.

The compositions, arrangements, and performances are dynamic enough to command artistic merit, yet serene enough for relaxation and cooling down.

--Raj Manoharan
