ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE MUSIC :: http://trevordickband.com

New World is interesting, experimental, and improvisational. It is complex music, yet accessible to the average listener. We plan to perform this music internationally at Folk, Jazz, Blues and World Music Festivals.

We were fortunate to be able to record the bed tracks of this album live off the floor at Noble Street Studios, a renowned state of the art space in Toronto, Canada.

Overdubs were tracked later in our home studios. The project was engineered, mixed and co-produced by Richard Cleaver. He has also served as a Judge with the Canadian Juno awards and has built a reputation for doing whatever it takes to capture sound with excellence. Finally, it was mastered by Juno Award winning Engineer, George Seara

Amazing, fresh, exciting things can happen when collaborating fully as a team. We saw this with New World as we worked together at a deeper level and pooled our ideas, musical skills and experience. The project was a long 3-year journey. The process, however, proved to be as fulfilling as the final product.

The music on this album also represents that sense of excitement, adventure, vision and sacrifice – when our forefathers and mothers left the “Old World,” got on a ship and sailed into the unknown, in faith and discovered the New World. That’s what this album is all about – that longing for adventure, that sense of creativity, the drive to explore new territories with reckless abandon.

We live in an incredible World, full of wonder, beauty, ugliness, sanctity, mystery, complexity and brokenness.

Deep down, this music also comes from a place of faith and hope of a new, restored World.

THE TREVOR DICK BAND :: http://trevordickband.com

Award-winning instrumentalist Trevor Dick and his long-time band-mates have entered new territory with the introduction of the Trevor Dick Band’s debut album, New World, a world/jazz/folk fusion with classical and modern pop/rock underpinning that takes you from Africa to Latin America to Europe and North America, erasing all borders.

As a solo artist, Trevor’s five previous albums were in the gospel/sacred vein. 2010’s Yahweh won two GMA Covenant Awards including instrumental album of the year. Trevor helmed those recordings, but the combination and arranging contribution of all five seasoned musicians — Brad Toews (keys); Tony Lind (guitar); Will Jarvis (bass); Steve Heathcote (drums); and Trevor (violin, viola) — to the songwriting took the Ontario-based group in a new creative direction.

“I was born in Nigeria, Africa, so I have a love for African music, especially Western African,” says Trevor, “and another band member, Will, is a specialist in Latin American music — Cuban and Brazilian — so we were feeling fairly restricted creatively in the music that we were doing. We were ready for something brand new.”

Produced by the Trevor Dick Band, along with co-producer/engineer/mixer Richard Cleaver, at Toronto’s state-of-the-art Noble Street Studios and various home studios, the quintet spent a year in pre-production, writing and arranging such songs as “Bourbon Street Carnival,” “East of Sinai,” “Perpetuum” and “Ifriqiya,” and another year recording. Cellist Kevin Fox is the only guest on the 15-song album for the “Schindler’s List” and “New World” tracks.

“On most of our previous projects, I did the majority of the writing and just pitched that material to the band to rehearse and arrange,” says Trevor. “This was the most collaborative effort we’ve had as a band where everyone played a much more significant role in the writing and arrangements. Amazing, fresh and exciting things can happen when collaborating fully as a team. We saw this with New World as we worked together at a deeper level and pooled our ideas, musical skills and experience.”

“Bourbon St. Carnival” was written by Tony whose style is quirky and experimental, resulting in a fun, groovy blues tune that conjures up a New Orleans’ party vibe. “East of Sinai,” one of Trevor’s compositions, is a turbulent, dramatic “spy song”, reflecting the unrest in the Middle East. Trevor’s “Perpetuum,” with its repetitive motif, represents the constant revolution of the earth, passage of time, changing seasons and cycle of life and his “Ifriqiya” — North African for ‘sunny place’ — is a cheerful rhythmical number exploring the beauty of humanity and diversity, despite the hardships.

The title-track is a medley of “What A Wonderful World,” popularized by Louis Armstrong, and the main theme of Anton Dvořák’s “New World Symphony,” and the combination of the two are significant to The Trevor Dick Band.

“‘New World Symphony’ was written when Dvořák saw the new world [North America] for the first time and was inspired by the African and Native American people and music,” says Trevor. “For this reason, we felt a pairing with ‘What A Wonderful World,’ was appropriate. The song embodies the spirit of adventure, risk, vision, exploring new worlds. We chose it as the title track to this album because of the new direction we have taken with this project.

“The music on this album also represents that sense of excitement, adventure, vision and sacrifice when our forefathers and mothers left the Old World, got on a ship and sailed into the unknown, in faith, and discovered the New World.  That’s what this album is all about — that longing for adventure, that sense of creativity, the drive to explore new territories with reckless abandon.”
