Jorge Alfano is a multi-talented and diverse shaman. Musical Massage: Resonance is a disc of gentle acoustic minimalism designed to take listeners to deeper states of subconsciousness. Alfano's virtuosity on ethnic bowls, bells, gongs, strings, reeds, and percussion allows him to explore those states of being without fear. This is one of the best CDs of this nature. The Relaxation Co. has dozens of albums in dozens of series directed at healing. The power of this CD is evident only to deep listeners. It fits Brian Eno's definition of ambience and is interesting and innocuous at the same time. This CD will appeal to fans of Life in Balance, Klaus Wiese, and Jim Cole.
