Album Review

On July 4, 1996, Jonn Serrie journeyed to the Nacoochee Valley in the North Georgia Mountains. He staged a concert with John Winterhawk Johnson and Tom Walk in Dreams Goodman. Thus, the concept for Spirit Keepers was born. This is a very deep and inspirational hybrid that bridges two cultures. The project joins Serrie's electronic devices with Goodman and Johnson's acoustics and mysticism. The atmospheres are expansive, the sound design is intense, and the soundscapes are spiritual. This highly emotional set evokes healing powers and cleansing imagery. Deep listeners will enter the shamanic zones of this trio. The CD will appeal to fans of Cornsmoke, Coyote Oldman, R. Carlos Nakai, and Douglas Spotted Eagle. It is essential Native American music.

Off the beaten path for Serrie

I have owned this CD for many many years (I bought it when CD's were fairly ubiquitous).

Serrie's works are normally lush, sweeping keyboard pieces inspired by space themes. His works are normally solo (though there have been some exceptions, such as when he collaborated with flute player Gary Stroutsos). I have a feeling Serrie's fans are a fairly small core of space age music fans - such as myself - who can appreciate the minimalism of his music.

Spirit Keepers makes a giant leap away from his traditional sound and is definitely off the beaten path for Serrie - and to this day is nothing like any of his works either before nor after. Spirit Keepers finds Serrie experimenting with Native American themes - and to great effect. The Native American themes are beautifully expressed through native flutes, whispering voices and drums, while Serrie's trademark keyboard serves as a canvas for these musical elements. The infusion of the two seems extremely natural and the musical styles compliment one another seemlessly. It's hard to suggest specific songs - every song has something to offer.

I would have to say that this is probably one of Serrie's best works. I have never grown tired of this album and am very please I own a copy. Spirit Keepers has a bit more "texture" to Serrie's otherwise lullaby-like keyboard pieces. Even die-hard Serrie purists I think will be pleasantly surprised. Similarly, I believe those who are Native American purists will also find much to enjoy here.

This album will not disappoint. It is one of the best new age CDs I own.

Biography

Genre: New Age

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Leading planetarium composer Serrie has been looking to the heavens for inspiration for over a decade. Coming from a family ensconced in the aviation field, Serrie now soars and glides with his hands on the controls of analog and digital synthesizers. His rhythmic outings often have an understated heroic feel, although he has also done some more pop-oriented instrumentals on his 1990 release Tingri. However, he seems most at home in the longer-form space-music journeys...
