Lucette Bourdin and Phillip Wilkerson - Coast to Coast
Their new release, entitled "Coast to Coast", contains a broad variety of lush and exotic electronic ambient music. Pieces with sleek and semi-rhythmic tapestries evolve dramatically into intense dynamic textural passages, and then recede again into exquisite lightness and repose. The depth and breadth of the kinds of music that these two artists have created here simply astonishes us. The music hits on all cylinders; immediately approachable, fascinatingly diverse, evocative enough for profound contemplation, and composed beautifully. This is the kind of album that listeners will want to hear again and again, just to make out all the new details that can be heard on each successive listen. Just an amazing piece of art.
