Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Kenny Wessel (acoustic guitar, electric guitar); Brahim Fribgane (oud, cajon drums, bendir); Ned Rothenberg (flute, bass flute, shakuhachi, bass clarinet, alto saxophone); Graham Haynes (slide whistle, cornet, flugelhorn); Shanir Blumenkrantz (acoustic bass); Hamid Drake (drum set, frame drum); Steve Gorn (bansuri, pennywhistle, clarinet, oboe); Adam Rudolph.
The shifting line-up of composer and percussionist Adam Rudolph's ensemble Moving Pictures has always, over the last 15 years, featured a high caliber of musicians, but the group that plays on DREAM GARDEN truly dazzles. Multi-instrumentalist Graham Haynes, reedist Steve Gorn, and percussionist Hamid Drake are only a few of the luminaries on this set. In addition to the musical chops on tap, DREAM GARDEN also folds in a dizzying array of world music styles, drawing North African, Afro-Cuban, Indian, and Middle Eastern flavors structured under the guidance of a near-telepathic avant garde jazz sensibility. Lyrical, challenging, and thoroughly absorbing, DREAM GARDEN is one of the most noteworthy jazz fusion recordings of 2008.
Artist Overview
As a teen, composer/percussionist Adam Rudolph was mentored by the likes of Don Cherry, Fred Anderson, and Maulawi Nururdin. In 1977 he traveled to Ghana and met the famed griot Foday Musa Suso; a year later they formed the Mandingo Griot Society, pioneering a fusion of African music with jazz and R&B. In addition to appearing on sessions by Herbie Hancock and Jon Hassell, Rudolph collaborated extensively with Yusef Lateef. He debuted his own group, Moving Pictures, with a 1992 LP. In 1995, he premiered his first opera, The Dreamer. Rudolph issued two albums in 2010: Y?y¡ (with Ralph Jones) and Towards the Unknown (with Lateef). Rudolph was also a founding member of the multigenerational collective Build an Ark. ~ Jason Ankeny
