After only one listening to "Between Green And Blue" by David Helpling, I realized both the musical creativity and the unlimited popular appeal in the album. "Between..." is one of the freshest albums to enter the instrumental scene this year. Helpling uses mostly keyboards, various percussion and bass to deliver a moody, sometimes brooding, yet beautiful album. One will recognize similarities to Patrick O'Hearn, but will later determine Helpling's very apparent individuality in this album. Programmers will have effort in selecting tracks pertinent for their shows. "Between Green and Blue" conjures an exploration into vast landscapes, the mind and space. "Worlds," "The Blue Sun," and "Emeralds" are my favorites, yet do not discount the other tracks. Helpling has created a consistent, friendly, intricate, and emotional array of soundtracks which will please any listener. One of my favorites of 1996.
