AllMusic Review by

Ellen McIlwaine is a respected guitarist and singer and has been making albums of scintillating folk/blues since the 1970s. On this 2006 release, she takes her powerful skills and shifts gears, playing acoustic slide guitar on improvisational, Eastern-inflected pieces that are more akin to free jazz than the chiefly blues-based work of her past. Accompanying her on this intriguing journey are Cassius Khan on tablas and Linsey Wellman on sax.
