“A sublime musical journey into the world of Tarot, Divine Doorways is an exquisite collaboration between Andrea Goodman (vocals) and Gerry Hemingway (drums). Two ancient souls connecting in sound and spirit through the wisdom of Tarot. Both artists so rich musically and emotively ... Gerry's technique is virtuosic and his response to the voice incredibly sensitive. Andrea's voice is powerful, explosive, liberated and also vulnerable, tender, understated, subtle. Amazing. I really felt them as channeling ancient cultures, deities and wisdom. So inspiring. So filling."
Both Andrea and James Wanless (creator of the Voyager Tarot) wrote beautiful poetic notes to each card further deepening the listening experience. For the Fool-Child, Andrea writes: "I take a step into the unknown; something becomes ground for my foot. I step again and farther; it meets me, plays, runs away with me. I dip into the sea of enormous potential; something becomes a boat.
Let this beautiful collaboration hold you in your own boat and help guide you to that personal place of discovery and awareness.” Amazon, August 8, 2010
"As I began listening to it I felt like Bach hearing a glimpse of "Nirvana" and the future of music, a form I did not entirely understand yet could sense the validity of. It is a completely improvised work that struck me as a musical equivalent of abstract expressionism in art and an outgrowth of modern jazz in the unusual and original synthesis of modern drumming and improvisational sounding through which Andrea Goodman's rich, resonant voice accesses and expresses deep collective energies. I listen to it in my studio when I am painting and it is powerful contemplative music that provides a fabulous ambient background to support any type of creative endeavor." — Dicasso
