Tensile toned guitarist Rotem Sivan mixes trio and solo performances on this collection of originals with a team of Haggai Cohen Milo/b and Colin Stranahan/dr. He has a subtle quietude to his delivery, weaving around Stranahan’s brushes on the suave “Shar” and lyrical “Aloof.” The team gets more assertive with some rock feel on “Sun Song” and “Reconstruction” while vocalist Gracie Terzian gives an indie feel to a hip hoppy “Over the Rainbow.” Milo’s gentle work leads into a soft landing during “Make You Feel My Love” and bows in open spaces during the title track. Solo arias include a fragrant “Rustic Heart,” fragile “Knives and percussive “Bruchim Ha Nimtzam,” making all of the material here feel like impressionist water colors. Rich textures in open fields.
