Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"After performing and recording together for over fifteen years as members of various bands, musical genius Daniel Carter, pianist Matthew Putman, and drummer Federico Ughi have come together as a trio for the first time. Whether you recognize them individually, as the core team at 577 Records, or from their involvement in ensembles like the legendary quintet Telepathic Band (which released seven spectacular albums of its own), you've never heard them like you will in their debut album, Stream of a Dream.

Their premiere release is a live recording from their March 2024 performance at Brooklyn's New York Forward Festival. This music-focused arts initiative was established in 2015 and is now bringing its roster to Canale Monterano, Italy and Tangier, Morocco. Always held in eccentric locations, these events flawlessly (and intentionally) capture the intimacy so iconic of this music community. They bring together many gifted musicians from 577 Records' impressive catalog, activities, and recordings, as well as special guests, new friends, and emerging artists from the label's SOF residencies.

Both the magical assembly of this trio and their collaborative avant-garde goodness are characteristic of the New York Forward Festival's innovative vibes. Together, Carter, Putman, and Ughi present essential, abstract music as a full-body experience that one can only describe as the exhilarating chemistry of sound. This live show embodies the mystical and sacred nature of their decades-long friendship that is steeped in a shared passion for creating melodies."-577 Records
