Conceived by McAnany and long time friend and colleague Philippe Saisse, Tribe fuses the authentic performances of the best Native American artists with Saisse' tasteful, emotional and sensual arrangements. What started as a simple conversation between two friends, two acclaimed and successful record producers, has become possibly the most compelling commercial musical expression of the Native American experience ever made available for the masses.
Rollin' Like Thunder CD by Douglas Blue Feather and Danny Voris offers Native American guitar and flute music.
The haunting melodies of the Native American flute evoke the flow and cadences of breathing while the pulsing rhythms of the drum evoke the beating of the heart. Heart of the Wind brings together these two very primal and human instruments in a collection of new and transforming compositions by two award-winning artists, Robert Tree Cody (Maricopa-Dakota) and Will Clipman.
Ritual CD by Native American Flutist R Carlos Nakai and Pianist/Composer, Peter Kater, offers new age music and instrumental music for yoga music. Twice Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling pianist, Peter Kater has written the music for over seventy television and film programs including eleven On and Off-Broadway dramatic plays. His more than 30 critically acclaimed CD releases in 20 years range from Contemporary Jazz, World Fusion and Native American collaborations to full orchestrations and of course, his signature solo piano recordings. His PIANO recording, released in October of 2003 was just nominated for the Best New Age Album of 2004 Grammy Award. Receiving extensive world-wide airplay on a diverse array of radio formats, Katerâ€™s broad creative stroke has touched millions of hearts. Over the last few years his music was heard in the NBC broadcast of the 2000 & 2004 Summer Olympics; he collaborated with Kenny Loggins on his December CD and performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The majority of his albums have appeared in the Top 10 of National Airplay charts and in the Top 20 of Billboardâ€™s New Age and Contemporary Jazz charts. Of German birth and descent, Peter moved to New Jersey from Munich, Germany at the age of four and began studying the piano, at his motherâ€™s demand, when he was seven. Seven years of classical training led into playing Rock & Roll and Top 40 bands around New Jersey and New York while studying contemporary improvisation. Moving to Boulder, Colorado at the age of eighteen, he began a six-year period of playing only improvisationally in clubs throughout the Rocky Mountain region. â€œI didnâ€™t want to play anything the same way twice, being in the moment and spontaneous was very important to me, both musically and personallyâ€, said Kater. Since then he's recorded and performed nationally and internationally with some of the worlds most talented and accomplished musicians, actors, directors and authors.

Talisman celebrates the 25th anniversary of R. Carlos Nakai's first release, Changes, and returns to the pure, haunting sound of the Native American flute, unaccompanied by other instruments. Talisman is a continuous soundscape as Nakai alternates songs for one flute and songs for two flutes in a rich tapestry of music 'so soothing, it unwrinkles mind and soul . . .'
