"It is written on the arched blue sky; it looks out from every star. It is the poetry of Nature; it is that which uplifts the spirit within us."
"A very great vision is needed and the man who has it must follow it as the eagle seeks the deepest blue of the sky"
- Crazy Horse, Oglala Lakota Sioux (circa 1840-1877)
Have you ever been out west and experienced the vastness of the open sky? Seeing the expansive vistas of the empty prairies of North Dakota or looking east across the miles of flatlands from the foothills of the Rockies in Colorado is overwhelming. The stark seemingly endless panorama of emptiness is mind-boggling and reminds you that you are merely just an insignificant speck in an infinite universe.
This is more of a jazz fusion tune than Native American but that's the uniqueness of it! Heavy on the echo and reverb, the Native American Bass Flute really takes on a whole new persona. Moogish bass, electric piano, a really cool D-50 patch ("Energy") as well as a smattering of frame drums give jazz fusion a distinctive new flavor.
