AllMusic Review by

A collaboration between keyboards player Cole and trumpet player Centorino, this is a very warm, friendly album of instrumental music -- okay, so it could fall under the new age label, so what? Cole's writing and playing are meditative, allowing her to incorporate ambient sound into the opening "Restless Spirit." The smallest disappointment is that the album is dominated by Cole's keyboards, despite Centorino's contributions to the compositional side, and the trumpet is all too rarely evident. It's a pleasant album, though, with some interesting musical textures that place it a cut above many of the characterless releases in this field.
