The composition of this track actually began in the middle of the pandemic. One night, after spending a lot of time cooking coq au vin, I sat down at my Oberheim Matrix-12 and began writing this tune. For the longest time I just gave it the title “Coq Au Vin,” staying within the tradition of food titles from my last two albums. But, I ended up changing the title to “Bloom” after it was finished. It’s much more apt for how the song sounds and develops. Hadrien Feraud and Adam Jackson’s playing on the recording is phenomenal. I really love the process of creating mostly electronic music and then bringing in top-tier instrumentalists to bring the whole thing to life. The intersection of electronic and acoustic material is where I find joy these days. The track pays homage to the fusion styles of the 70s but clearly has a strong footing in the present.

Yes! Amazing album. From the first notes of "Welcome," we are transported to a future. One that is new and yet familiar. A journey of sweet sounds and smooth dreams. One listen, and you will agree this has to go in your collection. rahzar
