ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cathy Serrano is an acoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter, who also plays Native American Flute. The flute album is actually taken from some recorded "noodling" sessions which Cathy and producer, Michael Patterson, recorded over a couple of afternoons, initially for use in other artists work, and just for the fun of doing it. Michael encouraged her to turn the sessions into her own album, and here it is! This is Cathy's first attempt at recording the Native Flute although she has played for her own enjoyment, and for her friends for some time.

Quoting Cathy, "I chose this name because to share the wind is to me dual: both a physical and spiritual concept. That seems to tie into the Native American Flute and its music for me, as it is a beautiful instrument physically, yet there is something spiritual about playing it. Likewise, wind is physical in the sense that wind provides us with a constantly renewable source of power and energy; and spiritual in that to share the wind (while playing the flute) feels like you are in tune with a higher spirit, or perhaps you are just re-awakening your own spirit -- either way it is a joy which is also constantly renewable. At least playing the flute has that effect for me."

"The compositions are varied in tempo, melody and mood such that, although you can’t escape the beautifully lonely sound of this instrument, Serrano never loses your attention. She also incorporates a number of Native American drums, jingles and rattles to augment the pieces, such as on the opening “Nakai Tribute,” where a gently shaken rattle accompanies the flute. “Woodlands In The Spring” is more upbeat and about as sprightly as this instrument can get. For “Wind Across The Grass” Serrano plays the somber flute against the steady beat of a lone drum, while subtle reverb and echo add depth to “Grandfather’s Britches” and “Canyon-Sitting.” The poppy “Meadows” applies peppy shakers before Serrano digs in with “Song of Mourning,” adding an amount of grit to her flute styling. The album fittingly ends with “Sunset,” is a joyous flute solo fit to send you on your merry way.

For a relaxing, natural, nostalgic sound, the Native American flute just can’t be beat! To fill your days with this wonderful tone look for this CD at cdbaby.com or wherever Serrano plays one of her live acoustic guitar shows - although I’d be willing to bet that she has a flute tucked away to Share the Wind for special requests."

It's a very pleasant and relaxing 24 minutes of music.
Hi Cathy! I listened to the CD today - Well done! What impresses me is that you and Michael were able to keep all the songs unique, through melodic structure, production, and song order. It's a very pleasant and relaxing 24 minutes of music. They are arranged and performed very well "Grandfathers Britches" had really nice effects. You should be proud of your effort, and thanks for the "Collector's Edition" copy!

Healing
As a healer, I found this CD excellent for massage, reki and other forms of healing as well as meditation. It is also a pleasant background enjoyment at all times. A REAL BLESSING!

LOCAL MUSICIAN CREATES COLLECTION OF NATIVE AMERICAN FLUTE MUSIC reprinted with permission

FORT WAYNE—Over the past few months, singer and songwriter Cathy Serrano has become a fixture in local coffee houses, serving up her own special brand of folksy, acoustic cover versions of a diverse repertoire of popular music. “Share The Wind,” her debut recording release, features 13 tracks of soothing and thoughtful Native American flute music, written and performed by Serrano. On “Share The Wind,” Serrano gets an opportunity to share her own intimate voice on the instrument and her own compositions. The moods move from the stately opening track “Tribute” to the rustic outdoor sounds of “Woodlands in the Spring” to the contemplative “Canyon-sitting” and haunting “Kokopelli’s Answer.”
