Likely, the best value for yoga music you'll ever find.


I have used this album in its entirety since 2002 for many, many hatha yoga classes. It remains my favorite album for yoga. Tracks from it are on every playlist I've made for yoga. Many class participants have asked me for the album/artist's name. This music never gets old. Track eight, Morning, is perfect for relaxation at class's end, to set the tone at the beginning of class, or both. With any track on Cello Blue, you can't miss.

Perfect companion to a Fall's day walk in the woods.


This whole album has a fantastic ambient quality about it. I find that it is the perfect companion to a crisp Ohio Fall day. The mood setting power is quite amazing. Darling has blended the perfect combination of dark and heavy overtones with those that are also light and almost whimsical and free. I pull this album out every Fall. There is nothing like sitting by the fireplace with a hot cup of tea and watching the leaves fall out the window while listening to Cello Blue. This is an album that you feel as much with your soul as you listen with your ears. Highly recommended.

About David Darling

Eclectic composer/cellist David Darling incorporates jazz, classical, country, pop, and new age music into his playing and compositions. Starting as a child, Darling displayed facility with many different instruments and styles of music; he began with piano at age four, moved to cello six years later, and played string bass in his high school band (while also serving as bandleader). After finishing his studies in classical cello at Indiana State College in 1965, Darling stayed on as an instructor for four more years.

In the '70s, Darling divided his time between working in Nashville, working as a studio musician with country artists including Johnny Cash, and touring the world with the Paul Winter Consort as a soloist, composer, and singer until 1978. 1979 saw his solo debut as well as the beginning of his collaboration with Ralph Towner, with whom Darling founded the chamber jazz group Gallery.

After Gallery ended in the mid-'80s, Darling went on to work with artists as diverse as Glen Moore, John Clark, Spyro Gyra, and Bobby McFerrin. During those years, he also collaborated with ECM producer Manfred Eicher in a series of dark, introspective works. The '90s found Darling continuing to challenge musical boundaries. His score for the 1992 Wim Wenders movie Until the End of the World drew great acclaim, as did his solo recordings of that decade, including 1993's The Tao of Cello and Dark Wood, which feature Darling's renowned improvisational skills. At the turn of the century, Darling did two albums for Relaxation Music's Musical Massage series: Musical Massage: In Tune and Musical Massage: Balance. He also recorded Cello Blue for Hearts of Space in 2001. ~ Heather Phares
