About the Album

Islander's Dilemma is the story of a wandering islander. One who proceeds from many places, yet is errant from all of them. An islander who drowns in the earth, yet breathes freely, relieved, in the sea. The sea that binds him with dreams and at the same time, with chains. The hermit like islander, in the solitude of his island and at the same time a fugitive of the same. Islander's Dilemma is an echo of his experiences and travels, through each of these places, imaginary and real. It is the reflection of a stone carved by different seas. Sometimes drop by drop and at other times by the beating waves.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
