Music Review by Bill Binkelman : New Age Reporter : October 2006

BODHI
TRANS UKRAINE
Crystal Wind Music (2006)

The last album I heard by Bodhi (who was recording under the name Kevin Setchko at the time) was his minimalist new age tone poem album, CLOUD ETCHINGS. To say that TRANS UKRAINE marks a departure from that release may be the understatement of the year! While Bodhi’s great flute work is still in ample evidence, TRANS UKRAINE is a ramped up blast of superbly chilled electronica (with traces of world fusion now and then), with the artist marrying his flutes (and some piano) to an impressive array of synths, beats, and electronics. This CD is highly recommended if you love chill-out music, regardless of whether you’re a flute fan or not. Production and engineering are textbook as well. Bodhi collaborated with two Ukrainians (Igor Gromadskiy on the track “Crimea” and Dimitris Krist on “Kiev” and “Odessa”) who each play keyboards and Englishman Alex Newman served as producer and arranger and did the final keyboard mixing.

While there is no denying the fact that Bodhi’s flute features prominently throughout the recording, there are some long stretches where it’s not heard at all. Unless you more or less hate flute music, you’re going to like (or even love) this recording if you enjoy chill-out or electronica. Of course, that’s from my perspective and I greatly enjoy flute music, so there’s that to take into consideration as well. Putting it bluntly, TRANS UKRAINE knocked my socks off and I can only hope Bodhi will favor us again sometime down the road with another excursion on the electronica highway.

Notes and Impressions from the journey....

This project was conceived and birthed in Ukraine in September, 2004, when I met Dmitris Krist, a producer living in Kiev. With his wife , Natali Dali, translating (he spoke only Russian) we recorded trax for 2 of the pieces, "Kiev" and "Odessa". Through an unusual series of events I was led to another producer, Igor Gromadskiy, with whom I recorded the 3rd piece, "Crimea". Over the next 2 years the vision was brilliantly realized and completed through the masterful production skills of Alex Newman, an English producer I met in California while he was producing a CD with the world dance electronica band, "Medicine Drum". Finally, the CD cover graphics were done by Brigitte Behr, a German graphic artist, living in Paris, France. This CD is truly the fruit of an international collaborative effort.

Rich, awesome & multi-dimensional
This album blew me away. I expected to like it because I like Bodhi, but it surpassed my expectations. The production is rich and multi-dimensional, a real journey that keeps moving and morphing. I get carried away every time I listen to it. Great for relaxing, meditating or doing yoga. Much more interesting and entertaining than most of the other ambient music I've heard. Fabulous production values, textures and SPIRIT. Well worthy of all the awards it's won.

Tell 'em JR sent you
This is a spectacular production. Period. The artistry is wonderful, the images it conjures up serene and you'll have a tough time finding better music for, you know, than this.

Guru Nam Singh from Spirit Voyage Music

Awesome energy behind this flute playing-Listen to 1st track!
I don't listen to flute music much but this cd is great. Just listen to the first track. It is a journey in itself. The flute is powerful. It brings you to another place. Thank you, Bodhi.

Most soothing, yet invigorating music ever....
I was recently laid up in the hospital recovering from a bad illness and nothing sounded good to me. All I wanted to do was find something to take my mind, spirit and soul away from what I was feeling and enduring. "BODHI's Trans Ukraine" CD was the best thing that ever happened to me! With my headphones on, it took me to another place, where I could forget about my illness, be calm, dream, and feel inspired and hopeful that all would be OK soon. Which it was thank GOD! For anyone else who is recovering from an illness or just wants to transcend to a higher more spiritual place, this is the CD for you! I highly recommend it as therapy or just to listen to a really unique and marvelous piece of music. Thanks BODHI for giving the world this awesome music collection and thanks for being such a big part of my healing through your talents and insights that are reflected in your music!

OMG! Awesome.
I really liked this cd. The music is well balanced and conveys deep emotional energy which I just absolutley get into. Recommened for those that 'think' with their music.

Trans Ukraine
“Trans Ukraine” is my favorite CD of the past few years. I listen to it often, and it continues to intrigue me, taking me to new places, entrancing me. If you enjoy music that takes you on a journey, don’t miss this one. The acoustic balance between instruments, beats, and harmonies is simply superb. I don’t gush easily, but this CD is a must-have in any collection of jazz, ambient, acoustic, trance, or music-to-make-love-by.

Trans Ukraine, transfixing, transformative
When I heard the first few notes through earphones at a new age shop in Vancouver, I immediately knew this was a very special and deep piece. I bought it and have listened to it at least once a week ever since. All the other reviews are spot-on, describing the juxtaposition of the soft yet powerful melodic flute, against a background of rich textures, rhythms, and sub-melodies. The effect of this is that it energizes and inspires, yet simultaneously seems to alter the brain waves into a more harmonic, deep and relaxed/aware state. This is clearly more than ambient music my friends! The person who posted about getting it after 100 listening sessions had a similar experience - as I listen each time, another layer and dimension of this opens up, and amazingly, I keep hearing new things and having a new experience with this music. The really high quality of the production adds to the sensuality and connection (it sounds incredibly present and alive on my hi-fi, great dynamics and the flute is full bodied - nice pun - and warm). This is a must have CD for its music alone. Add to that the ability to use the music as a doorway to spirit, and it is invaluable. With gratitude to BODHI!

It is very soothing
My work is very stressful at times and I need something to listen to in order to decompress from a bad day. When I first heard this music on the Soundscape channel, I had to buy this CD. When the CD finally arrived, I was entranced with the music. I had had an especially trying day, the day this CD arrived and when I listened to it, I could feel all the stress and worry drop away.

Thank you.

Grace Purusha

captivating melody and energy...soul carrying...sensual and deep
When i first heard this CD, I felt taken on a magic ride into my senses. The flute together with the underbeat carried lifted me away. The next day I went to buy it and listened to it the entire day. This CD blends masterfully the heart energy of the flute and the soul of the beat. If you love captivating melody and depth, you will love this.
