A long and profound relationship between two radical improvisors has transformed into a multiverse of sound in three pieces.
On a curious day in Paris, John Butcher fell into his saxophone and ventured deep into its farthest corners. At the same time Rhodri Davies and his harp slowly merged into an otherwise unknown creature. As always John and Rhodri were adventurously exploring their respective instruments, and in its own singular fashion ‘Drunk on Dreams’ shows that ferocity and delicacy, odd individual outbreaks and deep connections doesn’t have to be opposites.

Not your average free improv blow-out, this is lyrical, inventive & intelligent. Mellow and beautiful enough to appeal to a wide range of ears. The recording is fantastic with a lovely room ambience. Rory C

Total mastery of patience, time, and drama create a constantly engaging journey that never gets tiresome or same-y: in fact the harder you listen the better it gets! Somehow Sorey et al. find a way to combine the deep listening and spontaneous interaction of the best jazz with the sense of every tone and sound being worth a universe of listening, which could be equally from Cage and Feldman or the accompaniment to an ancient ritual.
The recording/engineering is absolutely perfect as well. Giles
