AllMusic Review by

World-renowned maverick cellist David Darling is classically trained. The Tao of Cello--part of the Art of Relaxation series--is 22 improvisations for solo cello celebrating the spontaneous creativity of the human spirit. Each of the selections is titled with an excerpt from passages in the Tao Te Ching, a seminal work by Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu. The serenity of the music and the pensive acoustics perhaps partly derive from the spacious old Connecticut barn in which it was recorded. Listen to Darling's cello and your experiences will flow seamlessly, from thoughtful introspection to playful exuberance.
