There is a great new CD out by Timothy Wenzel called A COALESCENCE OF DREAMS. Every now and then comes along what I call a traditional new age album with all the right ingredients (albums by Tron Syversen last year come to mind) -- relaxing yet invigorating, soft yet interesting, dreamy and spacey, some lovely melodies and a bit of ambience, lots of great synth and synth-sounds, some acoustic instrumentation such as piano and violin, just a great mix.

The background materials says he is inspired by places all over the world -- Sweden, Hawaii, Africa, Germany, Arabia and the United States (Michigan and the Appalachian Mountains). He likes to turn historical tales into musical sounds.

So jump aboard this train and come along for the ride. This is an absolutely beautiful CD with lots of gentle, yet emotional music on it. This is classic stuff.
