Spirit of Hope feels like the sort of medicine that you look forward to taking. And not just because you have to. May it enter into you and enhance your hopefulness, too. A tremendous album.
A powerful gift, timeless and perfectly well-catered to help any and all listeners find and center themselves – regardless of how complex and confusing the outside world may be.
The skill & clear love for making music transcend the walls of genre & absorb into you as any great work of art should. Gorgeous & impressive to witness.
The genre is not commonly explored with such passion & dedication these days, it’s a pleasure to hear the unforgettable & classic sound of authentic jazz.
The musicianship is phenomenal, always in keeping with the overall mood yet free to roam the halls of creativity without barriers or expectations.
The magic is in the possibility, the freedom of the sound. Donald Wiles brings his musicality & enhances the soundscape in a beautifully natural manner.
Unbelievably smooth, the instrumental performances are fantastic, the way they’ve been mixed has such a delicacy that the skill just floats out around you.
