Darshan Ambient - Dream in Blue (cd)

Michael Allison, who records as Darshan Ambient, has had a widely
varied career, from playing in rock bands with the likes of Richard
Hell to knocking out 80s post-punk pop to crafting melodic New Age and
ambient music. Now, with Dream in Blue, he sets his sights on his jazz
influences, notably Miles Davis and John Coltrane, and creates a
soft-edged fusion CD that's quite simply one of the best releases of
2011. Allison warms up the listener with "Upon Reflection," which
starts off feeling like it would be at home on previous releases like
A Day Within Days or Autumn's Apple–a cool downtempo groove with
twinkling keys and what sound like electronic drums. As you listen,
though, the drumbeats begin to change, becoming analog and picking up
more of a shuffle-and-crash affair with an unmistakable jazz pedigree.
It's a "welcome to Dream in Blue" moment that gets reinforced as soon
as the trumpet kicks in on the next track, "When Will My Someday
Come?" (A nod to the classic Miles version of "Someday My Prince Will
Come.") This is a straight-up jazz track with a live-combo feel that
belies the fact that everything here is played by Allison, from from
keys to drums to trumpet to guitar. And let's talk about the guitar,
not just here but through the disc. While on this track it's got a
viable classic jazz tone, mathematically perfect runs picking out the
melody, work your way toward "Sahara Sun" to hear Allison unleash his
six-stringed beast across drumwork that would do Art Blakey proud. The
track works even more due to the quiet, pastoral melody ambling
innocently along in the back as the guitar builds to a wild, fuzzy
howl that drops out at exactly the right time. He shows his guitar's
soulful side as it smoothly dovetails with a classic slow-beat rhythm
section on "As You Were." (The bass here is thick enough to chew–just
the way I like it.) The guitar trades leads with piano, played with
late-night-lounge cool. The piano is at its most stunning on "Silent
Smile (Angelo's Song)." A romantic solo line slowly picks up quiet
strings and bass. Midway, Allison brings in the trumpet, high and
proud, to speak a short phrase that feels weighted with true emotion.
In the last 30 seconds he reverts to solo piano save for one final
chord. An amazing track. I like that Allison also keeps his ambient
side in play here with the meditative "Waiting on a Dead Man's Horse,"
with its long, watery pads and ringing wind chime tones. Dream in Blue
is a high point in the Darshan Ambient story, a tale that's been
growing stronger with every new release. I think it's a shame that
Darshan Ambient is one of those wonderful secrets this genre community
has been keeping to itself. This is a disc with crossover potential,
the potential to expose more people to its cool fusion of styles that,
in the end, simply add up to one very enjoyable, moving and beautiful
CD of instrumental music.
