John Huling fashions the original compositions that make up SPIRITLANDS around Native American legends and the landscapes of the Southwest. As a result, each track is a panorama of sound featuring flute, pan flutes, drums and enough synthesizer to provide lush and full music. In the backdrop are whispering winds, gentle rains, thunder, running brooks, coyotes and other animals. In some cases, the songs are energizing, driven by strong drum beats and on others, Huling's flute floats meditatively above a gentle underlying melody. This album is sure to fill any listener with warmth and emotion.
