As many of you might already know, the new portal is finally open!!!!! I am so sorry that it has taken so long to happen, but I do hope you find it worth the wait. Some of the new features you will be able to enjoy are being able to message any member & being able to post your own favorites. There will also be a forum added so that requests and such can be made there. Eventually hope to in essence mirror this blog there and of course have new content available. The new music available should be substantially more than here as there will be multiple people posting =-). Please stop by and join your NEW home for QuietMusic – www.quietmelodies.com!

Michael Jones & David Darling – Amber
MP3 @ 192 Kbps | 43:24 min | 1987 | 65 MB | 10% Recovery Record
Both pianist Michael Jones and cellist David Darling are master improvisers, and on Amber they form a perfect team. Jones plays the piano with a delicate touch, sensitive to the patterns of nature; Darling adds dimensions of abstractions; both are in tune with the soul’s inner musings. “Rainfall” is perfectly titled, as Jones is the plink to Darling’s plunk. Darling’s warm chords support the piece like a warm fire adds comfort to the storm. “Wu Wei” is bittersweet, an inventive syncopation with layers of cello (some electrified); the piece is like a carefree walk where you notice this and that. It reminds me of how a puppy frolics to investigate every leaf and bumblebee. The sequences slow to a drunken crawl, almost a race to see who can come in last. “After the Sun” is an inky and introspective solo by Jones, somber yet at peace. Sparkles of hope then come out in bright contrast to the edge of night. The eleven-and-a-half minute “Dreamlight” balances between a lullaby and space music. Darling offers broad plains of electrified organlike tones that create the sensation of floating in space. Both Jones and Darling fill out the musical space with tones that simulate starlight. The album ends with “Shadows of the Moon,” a lighthearted piece that reminds me of the bounce of fireflies. The progression through the album is wonderful.
