Product Description & Reviews

Audio CD. Peter Buffett's music for SPIRIT blends the ancient and the modern. During the show's first public performance in Green Bay, Wisconsin, a remarkable fusion took place. Performers from all over the world gathered in song and dance with members of the Oneida and Menominee nations and a local children's choir and, for a moment, a joyous community of the spirit existed. You could be forgiven for imagining that the spirits of the first European settlers and the Native Americans they encountered were also present.
Imagine Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon with a Native American motif and you have a fair gauge of Peter Buffett's intentions on Spirit, a live recording of a 1998 stage production involving more than 80 drummers, dancers, and musicians. (Originally aired on public television, Spirit is now on video.) Most of Buffett's keyboard-driven, percussion-fueled compositions are live renderings of works from his intriguing 1997 release, Spirit Dance, his most recent ode to Native culture. The energized live setting (at times involving a female youth choir, Native American singers, Native American flutist Robert Mirabal, and, impressively, guitarist Peter Maunu) serves Buffett's atmospheric work well as it traces a theme of personal transformation guided by Native spirits. Spirit may not fully match the sustained sensory impact of Pink Floyd's opus, but it offers several riveting moments--the percussion-heavy reworking of "Firedance," his brief contribution to Kevin Costner's film Dances with Wolves, the exultant "Passage," and a lost gem from Buffett's catalog, the plaintive, piano-based "New West." --Terry Wood
