On Walking on Air, concert harpist and spiritual sound healer Joel Andrews offers a transcendent musical experience. The album begins with a sparkling melody that seems like light playing on water. Andrews then lures the listener to new realms with a series of glissandi, and, as the notes become airy, an angel's voice entices through the stillness. If you listen closely, you'll hear that Andrews uses many exotic keys, harp techniques, and rhapsodic melodies in his music. But listening closely is not the intent; everything about this beautiful music -- even the pure vibration -- encourages the listener to relax, let the body rest, and the spirit soar. Listening to this music makes me feel like I've floated to a temple in heaven.
