Steve Kindler's music is a bit difficult to place but easy to listen to. Some of the tunes are catchy while others primarily set introspective moods. Most of the music is upbeat and Kindler's violin is quite attractive; he is also heard in spots on guitar and synthesizer. The personnel changes constantly throughout the program, yet there is a unity to the music as one piece flows naturally into the next. The music could be called light fusion with straight-ahead and new age sections or even superior background music, but in general it is beyond simple classification. This CD from the defunct Global Pacific label will be difficult to locate, but is worth searching for due to Steve Kindler's violin.
