Randy Wood
My Heart And Soul
Canyon

By Chris Heim

Published April 24, 2007

With one Juno and two Grammy nominations and a Nammy (Native American Music Award) to his credit, Randy Wood has emerged as one of the true leaders of contemporary Native American music. His fifth album, My Heart And Soul, bears all the hallmarks of his style—a warm and flexible voice, original compositions rooted in tradition but with contemporary and personal touches, sweet melodies and positive messages (“Don’t let the world get you down/There’s peace and love still around” from “For The Horses”). Wood’s vocals and pow-wow drum are augmented by a host of global percussion instruments played by Will Clipman, who has appeared on some 50 albums with R. Carlos Nakai, Robert Tree Cody, William Eaton and others. With roots in jazz and world music, he adds varied rhythms, sounds and textures here, giving My Heart a richness and depth that discs with only voice and percussion seldom offer.
