“Starlite” by Russ Jones

Single Review by New Age CD and New Age Notes Radio Staff

I think we can all agree there is something supremely mystical about the Native American flute. It has a special way of transporting us to whole other realms.

Russ Jones is an award-winning, self-taught flutist and composer known for his captivating flute music, played mostly on the Native American flute, which he started playing in 2011.  He creates enchanting flute compositions that resonate with listeners worldwide. His unique style and virtuosity have earned him critical acclaim and a loyal following.

The song, “Starlite,” contains rich and emotive qualities and here we feel a wide range of emotions through Russ’ instrument – the Mohave flute – such as joy, melancholy, and deep tranquility. “Starlite” has that truly mesmerizing, meditative quality that totally relaxes the mind, body, and spirit without effort.

“Starlite” begins with delicate, breathy flute notes that float gently in the air, mirroring the twinkling of stars in the night sky. The soft and soothing tones instantly capture the listener’s attention, creating a serene atmosphere. As the song progresses, Russ skillfully weaves intricate patterns, effortlessly moving between higher and lower registers of the flute, creating a sense of movement and exploration.

The composition unfolds with a sense of grace and fluidity, as if the listener is embarking on a celestial journey through a vast expanse of stardust. The melody expands and contracts, rising and falling like cosmic waves, while the subtle nuances in Russ’ playing add depth and expressiveness to the piece.

With each note, he manages to convey a profound sense of beauty and utter serenity. The composition’s dynamic range allows the listener to experience both the intimate whispers and the grandeur of the celestial landscape, which is “out there” but also within. When the song ends, we are brought gently back to Earth feeing refreshed and invigorated. This is a great song for deep meditation and introspection or just simple relaxation.
