Little Wolf Band is the creation of Native American producer/performer Jim Wilson, a project that means to celebrate Native American songs as living things, as sources and keepers of wisdom, emotion and spirit. Wilson has achieved this with a sterling blend of samples and beats, mixing in some live instruments and live voices to help shape his work. If NA songs are seen as keys to doors to different states of being, states of mind, then this is a collection of keys. Given this, Wilson has crafted an album of fine assists to a trance state, one that bears up well under auto-repeat, even endless shuffle play. The mixtures of samples have an intriguingly hypnotic effect, pleasant and beguiling, mysterious and yet comforting. — Steven McDonald, All Music Guide
