This album, perhaps more than any other in Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel's career, demonstrates the magic of live performance. Onstage, the range and depth of their compositions is all the more amazing in that it originates from the two of them alone. Their skillful combination of a single guitar and solo oboe--or ocarina-- produces music that is both intimate and grand in scope.
