Revelation

It’s so easy to form pictures or scenes that ‘take you there’ when I listen to music like this. That happens on ‘SHAMAN’S CAVE’, ‘SEDONA SUNSET’ and ‘THRU THE VALLEY AND OVER THE HILLS’ with its light melody and full arrangement. The saxophone on ‘ECLIPSE’ is played oh so sensitively and I love that slight bounce that makes ‘BOMBAY BOOGIE’ such an enjoyable piece!

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus

Well-known harpist and composer Peter Sterling is definitely in the groove with his latest release, “Sacred Visions.” The recording combines the rhythms of both East and West in a unique alchemy of ancient and contemporary elements. The result is an album of uplifting positive energy tracks that is sure to raise your spirit and get your toe tapping.

On this album Peter displays his prodigious musical talents on electric harp, Guzeng (Chinese harp), piano, keyboards and loops, percussion, ocarina, recorder, and vocals. Peter also enlists the assistance a number of fine musical accompanists such as Bruce Becvar, Robin Miller, and Fitzhugh Jenkins on guitars, William Aura and Craig Dobin of the band 3rd Force on bass and piano respectively, Hans Christian on cello and sarangi, and Richard Hardy on sax, flute, and pennywhistle.

In addition to drawing inspiration for a number of songs from the natural beauty of his home in Sedona, Arizona, where he often leads tours to sacred sites, influences of India and even a bit of Celtic flavor are reflected on the album. Peter and company cover a lot of diverse musical territory on the album. While largely rhythmic, other facets of Peter’s sonic spectrum are reflected as well, providing a perfect showcase for his diverse talents and comfort with a variety of musical modes and the many instruments he plays. One of the things that stand out to me in Peter’s music is the strong sense of spirituality that is expressed. “Sacred Visions” is an inspired blend of various musical and cultural elements that is both earthy and transcendental that makes for a totally enjoyable listening experience.
