Here is a strong new entry with a flute ensemble sound and neo-primitive leanings. Afternoon in Sedona has been an initial hit on the radio, with its intriguing combination of flutes, percussion and synthesizers. Nicholas Gunn plays all the instruments, except for additional guitar heard on "Michelle's Theme," one of the many standout cuts heard. From the lively, tribal beat of the opening track to the relaxed melodies of the closing and title track, Gunn has presented an unusually delightful debut. Each listen reveals pleasing nuances and subtle inspiration, recalling Ciani, Lynch and other seasoned composers. Nicholas Gunn is an artist to be reckoned with, and Afternoon in Sedona is the perfect introduction.
