Displaying an abundantly graceful and tranquil atmosphere throughout its dispersive and salutary melodies, all the songs selected here – despite its obvious differences in style and tone – deliver precisely the same substance, and its consistent, peaceful and refulgent gracefulness transpire a homogeneously effervescent emotional rapture, that effectively produces the same effect in the mind of the listener.

With somewhat original and very audacious creative dispositions, a lot of songs on this mix certainly deserves to be deeply appreciated, by the virtuous combination of qualities exposed on them: aggrandizing authenticity, majestic sensibility, proverbial excellence, phenomenal inventiveness, technical proficiency and high standards of dense and complex artistry, certainly showcases the work of serious, skilled and professional musicians, that not only deserves greater recognition, as well as all the compliments by their fantastic conception of an everlasting and disruptive world of sound, that – contrary to this one where we live in –, is imponderable and limitless, with sensibilities in constant motion and horizons in perpetual expansion.
