Wind, Water and Stone is the fifth album by acclaimed Native American-style flute player, Randy “Windtalker” Motz. This powerful New Age album features a collection of musically diverse, soul-stirring, and genre-bridging compositions, inspired by ten different National Parks and the Native Americans who once called them home.
The titles of each of the ten songs on this album represent the thematic confluence of the National Parks and their associated tribes, and the ambience of each song paints a musical portrait of Native American history and culture.
Each composition is a blending of soaring, transcendent, epic, sometimes tender and sometimes driving, orchestration that paints a cinematic musical landscape depicting the unique grandeur of these parks. The hauntingly beautiful sound of Native American-style flute in each song establishes the emotional connection to Native Americans.
Says Randy about this CD, “For years, I have been fascinated with the history, cultures, and ceremonies of Native Americans and I have always loved the unique beauty of the National Parks that my wife and I regularly visit as we travel the country in our motorhome. I wanted to meld these two important aspects of my life into an album that people could not only enjoy and relax to, but so they could visualize the unique beauty of each location through the dynamics of music. I believe I have accomplished that with this album.
I am extremely excited about this CD and the reviews have been nothing short of amazing. The album debuted at #16 on the One World Music Radio Top #100 Albums for April, after only three days, and OWMR host, Steve Sheppard, had this to say about the CD:”
“Windtalker, over the years, has honed his skill on the Native American Flute to become one of the finest creators of his time and you only must listen to the opening track to see why. We are, of course, talking about the title offering ‘Wind, Water and Stone,’ with its delicate and dreamy synth pads and utterly idyllic flute…. has to be the best start to any album I have reviewed in years.
Wind, Water and Stone … is an album I can see will be much sort after, not just by lovers of good flute performances, but by connoisseurs of ultra-classy instrumental music… get your hands on a copy of Wind, Water and Stone, you will be utterly blown away.”
