Weston Woods has created a total and satisfying listening package yet again. A playful poem and accompanying text depict the work of potter Juan Quezada in Mata Ortiz, Mexico. The story is illuminated by the spectacular illustrations of David Diaz and the original music of Otmaro Ruiz. In sum, the biographical journey is as artful as Quezada's pottery. Alfred Molina's narration enhances the experience. His rich voice is thoughtful, gentle, and melodious, and his pacing is as tuned to the flow as the artist is. For the poem Molina adds a light and lilting touch. A listening treat! A.R. 2005 ALA Notable Recording © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
