ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Featured in “Ten Albums You Need To Know: July 2019” by Jazziz!

Jeff Coffin is pleased to announce Music In Our Dreams, his latest release with his ensemble Dream Shanti. Dream Shanti is a collaboration between some of the finest musicians to hail from the eastern and western hemispheres. Dream Shanti is due to be released on Ear Up Records on July 22nd, and pre-orders will become available on July 8th.

The innovative compositions on this album flow freely between the Indian classical and jazz traditions in a way that honors the richness of both, and yet seems to create a unique sound of its own. The confluence of these two traditions is expertly delivered by Coffin on saxophone, Subrata Bhattacharya on tabla, Indrajit Banerjee on sitar, fellow Dave Matthews Band band-mates Carter Beauford and Stefan Lessard on drums and bass, Roy “Futureman” Wooten and Jordan Perlson on percussion, Chris Walters on Piano, and Ryoko Suzuki on harmonium. Music In Our Dreams provides listeners with the rare opportunity to hear Coffin, Carter Beauford, and Stefan Lessard in a context very different than Dave Matthews Band, and to hear an ensemble of consummate musicians performing deeply evocative music.

The genesis of this album was a jam session held between Coffin and virtuosic Indian classical musicians Subrata Bhattacharya and Indrajit Banerjee in Coffin’s home studio in Nashville, TN. The musicians each brought in original compositions and taught the pieces to the others by ear. Coffin asked Bela Fleck and the Flecktones percussionist Roy “Futureman” Wooten and New Orleans-born pianist Chris Walters to join the ensemble in recording the final product. “I’ve been making music with both these guys for over 20 years and know they are adaptable and super open to challenging themselves.” Coffin said of Wooten and Walters. Together with Coffin’s Dave Matthews Band co-stars, friend Jordan Perlson on percussion, and Ryoko Suzuki providing harmonium, this album is bursting at the seams with raw, genuine talent.

Mixed by Dave Matthews Band engineer Rob Evans and mastered by Nashville’s Jim DeMain, this recording is a musical wonderland of sonic exploration and groove.
