Description

This exciting, “wintery” CD from harpist Sharlene Wallace is a testimony to her innovative, virtuostic and gorgeous playing. The album journeys from crisp, winter-inspired original music to hot South American tunes with driving rhythms to a beautiful, naive waltz with harmonica player Carlos del Junco.
A frozen lake is like a chameleon whispering
shades of white and grey,
interjected by sweeping winds
then suspended in an eerie silence
against the booming and cracking
of the ice.    – Sharlene Wallace

Produced by Evelyne Datl

George Koller – double bass
