Valerie Andrews CD REVIEW (Recording artist, pianist and author of "A Passion for this Earth") "The new Starlings CD by the Murmurations Duo is a lush meditative offering from two virtuoso improvisers, Suellen Primost on cello and Jeremy Marais on clarinet, saxophone and balafon with friends on vocals, keyboard, drums, bansuri, uttar, tabla and crystal bowls. In the tradition of world music, this album draws on sounds from different cultures. It also tells a story, describing the experience of meeting the Beloved and drawing closer to one’s spiritual home. I’ve been playing Starlings almost continuously for the past week, following its flight from a soft mindfulness, through an interplay of notes and silence, to a dance of longing and fulfillment, each song embodying the fierce, gentle passion you find in a Rumi poem. If physicians prescribed music for our general health and wellbeing, this CD would be #1 on our playlist. Listeners will feel supported, centered, enchanted and refreshed--and closer to their own creativity. Thank you, Suellen and Jeremy!"
