Like his frequent collaborator Keith Jarrett, Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek never stands still for long. Straight-ahead jazz with Miroslav Vitous (the fine UNIVERSAL SYNCOPATIONS), medieval music with the Hilliard Ensemble, film music, impressionistic jazz flavored by his homeland's folk and classical music--Garbarek has excelled at these and more. On IN PRAISE OF DREAMS, he's convened a typically atypical group to perform his vivid, intense compositions--classical violist Kim Kashkashian and rock/jazz drummer Manu Katche.
Garbarek's saxophone sound eerily conveys the essences of both Arctic windswept landscapes and radiant winter sunshine, while Kashkashian's beautifully warm viola, rich with vocal- and horn-like sonorities, provides cushioning and counterpoint. Katche delicately but firmly anchors the proceedings with his subtle, pattern-oriented drumming. Garbarek's compositions are haunting, atmospheric, and elegiac, not to mention concise--certainly not early-morning music, but for times of deep contemplation or relaxation, DREAMS is an ideal soundtrack.
