Christian Artmann plays both flute and alto flute on this sublime album with Laszlo Gardony/p, Johnaes Weidenmueller/b, Jeff Hershfield/dr and vocalist Elena McEntire. Ms. McEntire is featured on three pieces, bopping along with Artmann on the funky “Earthling,” pastoral with Wedenmueller’s bass during “Always Here” and placid along with Gardony’s piano for a contemplative “Amazing Grace.” Artmann makes the woodwinds get fluffy like cirrus clouds on “Tropic of Capricorn” while flexing some muscle for the modal “Quixote” which has the rhythm team bear down with a vengeance. A pretty side is reflected on the cheerfully bopping of the title track and the gracefully galloping “Resilience.” A breezy morning!
