Review by Kathy Parsons
The folks at Real Music seem to have a real knack for putting together exceptionally good compilations. Cousteau’s Dream contains work from recent releases as well as some early ones (1987 Yanni, 1990 Kitaro), and there is a very international flavor to the album as a whole. A generous portion from the sale of each CD will be donated by Real Music’s non-profit EarthSea Institute to The Cousteau Society and organizations with similar goals of protecting and preserving the earth and its inhabitants. A noble cause, and a great album to help promote it! Several of the contributions are from Real Music artists (Kevin Kern, Tim Wheater, 2002), but most come from other sources such as Vangelis, Yanni, Kitaro, Kenny G, Richard Burmer, Michael Hoppe, Aria, Kamal, and Frederic Delarue. With such a variety of artistic styles, it is amazing that this album is so seamless. Smooth enough to use as a backdrop, but still interesting enough to listen to actively. Highly recommended!
