Hi Ted and all,

Glad you found out about that CD, Ted! I too bought "Grace and 
Gratitude" and I liked it so much that I posted a review at CD Baby. 
Here it is:

A beautiful record! It's named Grace And Gratitude and to me it just 
sounds like that.

This is a record I liked very much from the first time I downloaded 
some mp3's from Steve Lawsons site. I just had to buy the record and 
I'm so happy I did, because it's not easy to find ambient music with 
that kind of soul. Some other stuff I have been listening to, that 
Grace And Gratitude brings to my mind, are Wheather Report (especially 
Jaco Pastorious' wonderful tone, like in the opening and closing melody 
of "A Remark You Made" from Heavy Wheather), Paul Bley (the "silent" 
stuff he recorded with Jimmie Giuffrey and Bill Connors) and finally 
"Hearing Solar Winds" with David Hykes and his Harmonic Choir. Hmmm.. 
eventually a little Durutti Column as well. If any of these releases 
ring a bell with you I can assure you that you will love this disk. 
Chances are you will anyway!
