Album Notes
Nominated as jazz guitarist of the year at the National Jazz Awards, his previous album was nominated for jazz record of the year in the Canadian Independent Music Awards.

Who says the concept album is dead? This is the Dark Side of the Moon for parents of the twenty first century.

In the Future of Your Dream is a five part suite that shimmers with the vibrancy of a newborn and borrows from the beauty of early childhood inspired by and dedicated to Posgate's first born child; Dylan.

The second half of the disc (side 2?) are songs composed with McPhee's poetry that come close to the quirky sounds of Carla Bley or Frank Zappa.

Cd Review

In the Future of Your Dream: Toronto guitarist Tim Posgate celebrates the 10th anniversary of the birth of his label, Guildwood Records, in an entirely appropriate fashion: a project involving another important the birth of his son Dylan. Writing a musical setting for the whimsical and affectionate words of Peter McPhee, Posgate brings together most of his co-conspirators over the years for musical accompaniment. What results is a diverse but cohesive, and most of all, exactingly produced suite of engaging tribute to the wonders of parent-child relationship. As usual, the rhythm section of jean Martin and Rob Clutton kicks, but the little touches of Andrew Downing on bass clarinet, the soulful sax of Quinsin Nachoff and Lina Allemano's perfectly realized trumpet statements add colour to the mix. These are very deliberate and composed songs, not the free flight of Jazzstory, of which Allemano, Clutton and Martin are all parts. The approach to vocals comprises McPhee on recitation and an inventively scored "folk choir" to add harmony and a childlike atmosphere. The second half of the disc are other pieces by McPhee which are just as inventively scored, but with a bit more groove to them. Posgate has achieved an affectionate summary of his musical and parental relationships with this disc, there's lots to listen to before bedtime!
