Fiona's Comments

Dextrous dashing from magic mallets Rackipov. With an amazing vibes/sax duet feature and a popping candy eruption of grooves. Top level wonderment.

About the Album

The music of "Distant Dreams" is a continuation of the journey the Bulgarian vibraphonist began with his debut recording, "Pictures from a Train Window," where many of the compositions are influenced by the rhythms and melodies of Eastern European folk music, but viewed through modern jazz aesthetics. Mentored and influenced by vibes icons Gary Burton and Ed Saindon, Rackipov's rich eclecticism and life experiences provided him the platform for defining his own space in the elite mallet performance world. "This is a group to be enjoyed for years and years. The right personalities and skill-sets and talents have coalesced into one of the finest debut albums of recent memory." -Travis Rogers, Jr.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
