In Praise of Dreams
ECM 1880 LP
Warning: Last items in stock!
Following a six-year break from recording, with only a guest appearance on bassist Miroslav Vitous' "Universal Syncopations" ('03) and "A Rarum compilation" ('02), Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek returns with his first album of new material since" Rites" ('98). "In Praise of Dreams" continues along the path established by such recordings as " Legend of the Seven Dreams" , "I Took Up The Runes" , and " Visible World". But while Garbarek demonstrates the same penchant for deceptively simple pieces with almost anthem-like themes, his collaboration with violist Kim Kashkashian and drummer Manu Katche results in something richer, something deeper than what has come before.
Recorded March and June 2003 at Blue Jay Recording Studio, Carlisle, MA
