Great Review of Dean Evenson’s Dream Space

Review by Bill Binkelman, Retailing Insight Magazine
Dream SpaceHaving explored (musically) the rainforest, the desert, the sea, and many more environments, it was natural for Dean Evenson (flutes, keyboards) to turn his attention to the cosmos. On Dream Space, he’s joined by wife Dudley (harps, Tibetan bowls, tamboura) and violist Phil Heaven, as the trio traverse the vast reaches of outer space. Space for Evenson is friendly, warm, and inviting, albeit expansive and awe-inducing. Phil Heaven’s viola playing (similar in sound to space-music pioneer Kevin Braheny’s electronic wind instrument stylings) infuses ethereal beauty in these spacy soundscapes, while Evenson invigorates the genre by bringing his expert flutes to the forefront. This is surely one of the Evenson’s most soothing and peaceful albums.
