AllMusic Review by

Part of a series issued by Pure & Simple on the four elements, this album features a number of their artists, including Christopher Peacock, Richard Palalay, Manfred, Gene Nery, and Maia. Perhaps more than any of the other volumes of this series, the music here really does embody a sense of water, with its flowing melodies coupled with the light touch of the musicians. Christopher Peacock's "Island Time," which starts out the album, sets the mood nicely with its piano/soprano sax duet. Other highlights include Maia's "The Music Room" and Richard Palalay's "Solitude Bay."
