Perfect medicine from a strict traditionalist

While many new age composers have adapted and shaped their compositions using sampling and digital production, Goodall remains more of a traditionalist. Eschewing the strategy of using samples of actual indigenous musics, he favors keyboard-heavy passages that approximate the sounds of ethnic instruments like the Andean flute. If you're looking for innovation, look elsewhere. However, if you're a fan of Goodall's amiable style, this is the perfect medicine.
