Al Jewer and Andy Mitran and Hans Christian
2021 / Twotrees Innerworld
Review by Kathy Parsons
"Emerald" by Al Jewer and Andy Mitran is the duo's second collaborative single with Hans Christian, a multi-instrumentalist best-known as an exceptional cellist. On this piece, Al Jewer's alto flute floats on a cloud, sometimes in the background and sometimes carrying the melody. Andy Mitran plays live marimba as well as keyboards and percussion - all with a very light, magical touch. Hans Christian's cello is bowed in some passages and pizzicato in others, adding to the variety of textures in this beautiful piece. A musical gem in every sense of the word, "Emerald" is truly a collaborative work of art where no one is trying to be the "star." It provides a peaceful, relaxing listening experience and offers an almost-six minute respite from the stress of today's world. Thanks, guys!
"Emerald" is available from Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and other streaming sites. Wonderfully done!
