sample the album:
"With her debut solo album, Dreamsing, saxophonist Rachel Musson deepens her improvisational practice and sharpens her unique sound. Recorded in London, Musson's studio session for this album was scheduled at the precipice of the pandemic last year, and the resulting project is emblematic of that deeply uncertain era. It's a record full of gestures and thoughts that preoccupied her creative practice before and during an unpredictable time.
Apart from a scattered handful of words used as prompts, the album was improvised entirely on tenor saxophone; and like some of her previous work, it's a unique interplay between spoken word poetry alongside texturally lush saxophone.
This album follows Musson's I Went This Way (577 Records, October 2020), and shares similarly meta-analytical themes about the improvisational process. Musson also features on other 577 Records albums, including the two Shifa LPs, alongside Pat Thomas and Mark Sanders, and a feature on Federico Ughi's Transoceanico LP."-577 Records
