Dreamtime - Double Trouble 2 x CDs + DVD

SKU Reel Recordings 018-020
A great performance. Last time ever on this wonderful release from the wonderful, now gone, Reel Recordings label.

Very limited edition of only 500 copies made; Mike says that that's it for this one, so don't wait too long...

"Dreamtime is an international quintet comprised of Welshman Nick Evans, trombone; American ex-pat Jim Dvorak, trumpet; Italian Roberto Bellatalla, bass, and Brits Gary Curson, alto sax; Jim Lebaigue, drums. Their collective musicality is an infectious display of extroverted composition and energetic jazz improvisation, all wrapped up and torn down in the borderless spirit that is Dreamtime. This is a so-called jazz band that reaches for music "beyond the notes" and succeeds with exquisite panache. CD1 presents a stunning set by the quintet before an appreciative audience at the 1984 Bracknell Jazz Festival, as introduced by compere Lol Coxhill. CD2 lets us experience a rare 1991 recording of the Dreamtime quintet doubled up with friends: Paul Rutherford, trombone; Paul Dunmall, tenor, baritone saxophone; Kevin Davy, trumpet; Marcio Mattos, bass, and Mark Sanders, drums. Here is a powerful capture of music-making as back of the neck hair-raising as you would hope. To bring the Dreamtime into a multi-sensory realm, disc 3 is a DVD of a very watchable, 25' amateur film made at London's 100 Club in 2006. Here the sextet, including pianist Keith Tippett, play homage to their late friend, Elton Dean."
