CD Review – Ambient Alchemy, by Steven Halpern and Michael Diamond

New age masters Steven Halpern and Michael Diamond create musical magic with this delightful digital concoction, along with some help from their friend Michael Manring.

The CD contains 14 tracks of tranquil instrumental bliss, with genre pioneer Halpern laying a dense sonic foundation with his Fender Rhodes, keyboards, synthesizers, and crystal bowls, and Diamond weaving his smoldering guitar tones throughout the mystical mix. Manring chimes in on several numbers with his formidable bass.

The result is a flawless record of a dynamic trio that would be a dream to see live.

--Raj Manoharan
