Golden Spiral

Golden Spiral

Dean Evenson and Scott Huckabay with Phil Heaven

Soundings of the Planet

Dean Evenson (flute and keyboards) joins with guitarist Scott Huckabay, violist Phil Heaven, and bassist/percussionist Jeffrei Willson to weave a mesmerizing sonic web that leads the listener to a place of quiet rejuvenation and serene contentment on Golden Spiral. Liner notes address the album’s theme, which involves the concept of the Golden Mean (a universal sense of beauty). I’m not much of a scientist, so I can’t explain how that translates into music, but I can tell you the results are quite beautiful. While the overall mood is tranquil, subtle drama comes into play at times. Taken as a whole, this is another great massage and relaxation album from Evenson and company.
