CD Review – Mesa Verde Soundscapes, by Jill Haley

The majesty and grandeur of the Colorado U.S. National Park served as a most welcome muse for oboe and piano player Jill Haley on her third album celebrating America's treasures.

As with the previous two entries, this record is a family affair, with Haley's husband David Cullen on bass and guitar, daughter Dana on horn, son Graham on cello, and daughter Risa on viola.

In addition to the stirring music that perfectly captures the beautiful lyricism of the park, the package includes a glossy, high-quality photo booklet featuring breathtaking images of Mesa Verde in all its glory.

The result is an album that is both a fitting musical tribute and an inspiring travelogue.
