Thanks to Young’s masterful compositions, spotless arrangements and usual saxophone and flute brilliance, the land beyond the horizon is, to quote one of the titles, within reach.

I’m once again amazed by Joseph Young’s vibrant and dynamic storytelling, which makes this musical odyssey not only deeply compelling – but also highly inspirational.
