Rykodisc's A Day on Cape Cod series charts the sounds of a typical day in the evocative seaside area, beginning with Early Cape Morning. The uninterrupted, 60-minute track is a soothing mix of light breezes, lapping water, and chirping bird songs. But as simplistic as it is, the album is incredibly effective, proving that sound can be as suggestive as vision. The slate calm water and early dawn sky of Early Cape Morning's cover comes alive, and the steaming coffee warms your hand. Careful, don't trip over that driftwood.
