“Talking Stick” Album by Bill Leyden Released August, 2011

"Talking Stick" Album Art

If the Native American style flute puts you in another world, this album will guide you to another universe! In the spirit of the Talking Stick, I decided you use the flute and include close harmonies using the 4th, 5th and 6th notes of the scale of the individual flute. The result on the listener seems to cause a drifting feeling, where memories and plans can come together.

About the flutes that I used:

Lately I have been drawn to flutes in keys below middle E.
