Peter Kater & R. Carlos Nakai - Migration (1992)

A collaboration between Native American musician R. Carlos Nakai and jazz pianist Peter Kater. Tranquil, meditative, piano-based compositions with cello (courtesy of David Darling), flute, saxophone, bone whistle, and some gorgeous vocal embellishments. Gets a bit syrupy at times, but highlights like "Stating Intention" are chill-inducing.
