Vollenweider's "Book of Roses" album was the most elaborate work of this Swiss artist, usually considered as one of the best new age musicians ever. That's why I put in my little blog this song, titled "In Doga Gamee" and featuring many progressive elements. First of all, there are sweet and airy melodies, then a very rich choice of sounds and clever arrangements, including vocal harmonies and a great deal of instruments.
"Book of Roses" was the eighth studio album by Vollenweider.
Dozens of musicians were involved in the making of this album, building up kind of a flexible orchestra with a rich wind section and some ethnic instruments beautifully employed by Vollenweider. In this track I also appreciate the rythm solutions and, of course, Andreas' arp, the most known trademark of this eclectic artist. That's why this is definitely more than new age...
