The Nightingale Trio Steven Hobert's original music amazingly captures the electric, energizing, enthralling vibe of the many world music traditions he takes as influence. Middle Eastern, Indian, Balkan, Cajun/Zydeco, along with sound samples from daily life -- all work their way into this album and the band's live performances. Totally magic! Favorite track: Moonlight.

Track Name: Matches
faith is the bird that feels the light
and sings while the dawn's yet dark
always with matches 'neath its wings
whene'er there's a gust of wind

and I'm my own master thief
who comes to take that glint of hope away
all for the fear of tearing
this old fabric long-past due

peering down from mountain top
at endless sea of clouds
spirits wait in joyful peace
for others to surmount,
they drop their blessings with the rain
to nourish aimless souls
who once they've opened up their gates
will start to feel the pull

I can't wait to see the world
as it was meant to be seen,
I feel my rusted eyelids now
unlatching from the dream
Track Name: Ballet
soft white light
flooding through the window
heeding prayer of a candid cry,
cotton flakes
hover by the thousands
snow of Spring covering the sky

she twirls between them
fluid and formless
leaps from illness
glowing with divine

in a hospital bed
groggy from medicine
arms reach out trying to grasp the light,
one cotton flake
drifts on through the window screen
blows inside, right into her hand

she swirls above the bed
fluid and formless
holding seed of divine
Track Name: Unknown
I'm smitten with the way that I dream of us dancing.
We dash among the lamposts
and cars awaiting green lights
with lovin' abandoned.
And even 'mongst the skyscrapers
blocking out the sunshine
I still feel warm.

When I wake and step into this mad world,
I cry out as you dissipate to nothingness.
Here so hollow,
so I must follow
your scent into the unknown . . .

With every waltz and tango
our tangled limbs fuse
to form a spinning moon.
Whirling 'tween the asteroids,
never thoughts of crashing,
I and Thou as one.
Our telepathic wiring
is surging and the universe is e'er expanding.
