“… And many more beautiful dreams come true” is the dedication that Kosyo and Sashko Wladigeroff gave me their latest album Dreaming of Dreams with. Describing it as a “soundtrack for the listener’s fantasy”, they give it flesh with memories and emotions – experiences, sounds heard, pictures seen, intimacy felt. Dreaming of Dreams is one of those personal albums that make you dream of colours and worlds that Wladigeroff Brothers and their partners in music so pleasantly tell us about. The hens of Havana that noisily woke them up at 4 a.m., the music of Jeff Lorber that so strongly inspired them, and most of all – what they have been through with people very dear to their hearts – their mother, sister and friend who passed away Kalin Nikolov. Dreaming of Dreams is sometimes light-hearted, sometimes meditative – warm, humane, friendly. As we live.
Dreaming of Dreams is Wladigeroff Brothers’ third album, following the 2007 Wanderer in Love and the 2011 For the Greatest Little Things. Underlining the three is the same impulsive spontaneity that Alexander and Konstantin communicate with, only the horizon is further, the strokes of the brush – wider. Expressive in different genres – funk, fusion, classic jazz, world music; electronic and acoustic; vocal and instrumental – Dreaming of Dreams, just as its moods, is colourful and rich. As life is.
The compositions, all of them by Konstantin Wladigeroff, are brilliantly performed by him, his brother and the guest musicians, among which are the favourites of the Bulgarian audience – Irenia Vazquez, Stoyan Yankoulov, Kiril Valeri, Dimitar Karamfilov, Roberto Quintero, Alexander Kunchev “Sani”, Juan García-Herreros “The Snow Owl”, Victor Benev. The lyrics are by Ben Cross, Ivo Ovcharov “Ombre”, Marta Pulido, Kiril Valeri. All of them – friends, sharing with words and music that come from their hearts. As we communicate.
Release Date: 24 May 2014 from Wladigeroff Brothers
