This has been quite a journey finally arriving at album number 13 in the series of my music collections that features a variety of compositions, presented more or less in the order that they were created.
The title track Away We Fly opens this album with a gentle floating theme, the flying connection being literally flying through space in a kind of dream state. We are brought back down to earth with the bouncy, jazz influenced Open Your Eyes, which is a kind of environmental track asking people to pay attention to what is happening to the world around them.
The Girl Next Door is a relaxed track with a mainly piano theme. Indian Funk is just that – an Indian influenced Funky track with Sitar and Indian Male and Female vocals, an exotic funky adventure. Worth The Weight takes us away again into an atmospheric space with strange sounds all around eventually leading to a very nice orchestral final section. A Problem Shared (is a problem halved) is the theme here with a laid back but solid rhythm carrying a gentle trumpet like melody.
Mystical Worlds is a bit of a departure taking us on a very ambient journey through deep space towards those strange mystical worlds. This one is perhaps not for everyone but is however very relaxing and always interesting, although quite long.
Soul Funk 2 adequately describes this composition and leads us appropriately on to the final track – Take Me Home, with a swing.
