London-based musician Greg Foat comes through with a brand new album titled The Dreaming Jewels. The talented artist has been able to create interesting and eclectic bodies of work such as The Mage, and this new release titled The Dreaming Jewels comes as a pleasant surprise to me.
It’s an 8 track album with soothing and soulful compositions. The keys on the opener “Sapphire Dreams” are gorgeous, as they are backed by rhythmic drumming, basslines and gorgeous horns that add a jazzy, cool touch to the record. Throughout the album, you get tracks like “The Door into Summer,” “Lake Kussharo” and “This Is Not Necessarily My Answer, But,” which all feature stunning Rhodes keys, beautiful and harmonious melodies that are reflective and almost introspective. It’s a subdued and moody album, just like his previous work. The ethereal and atmospheric quality of the closing track “The Dreaming Jewels” is absolutely stunning, as the album really ends on a soft and beautiful note. Overall, Greg Foat brings together some beautifully composed records in a cohesive and free-flowing album. The Dreaming Jewels is a gorgeous release that perfectly captures the essence and aura of his music.
