Among whales the humpback is the acknowledged virtuoso performer, and among humpback whale recordings this album remains unequalled for clarity, variety and lack of extraneous noise.

Its purpose is not clear, though it may have a role in mating, found in oceans and seas around the world, humpback whales typically migrate up to 25,000 km each year. Humpbacks feed in polar waters, and migrate.

Humpback whale song fit the bill perfectly. From high wails to deep growls to rhythmic scratches to tearful moans, it encompasses the full range of emotions in the longest song performed by any animal, a tune that can go on for nearly 24 hours at a time. People are often moved to tears on their first exposure to such intensity. David Rothenberg's compilation New Songs Of The Humpback Whale is due out on Important Records later this year.
