DreamBridging the often distant worlds of instrumental virtuosity and studio wizardry, guitarist Michael Brook has helped craft this bold, beautiful ambient showcase for Indian electric mandolinist U. Srivinas. Brooks' [sic] sheets of sound enwrap a deep rhythm bed as Srivinas winds his way dreamily through the dark electro-acoustic mix. Infinitely spacious and powerful, this music -- which features performances by percussion-ist / vocalist Nana Vasconcelos and violinist Nigel Kennedy -- grows intoxicating with time.
