EASY LISTENING: Love Songs, CLASSICAL: Orchestral
A CELEBRATION OF SCANDINAVIA
The project "Nordic Dream" was created by the English songwriter, Dave Taylor, who has worked in Scandinavia since the late 1970''s and lived there for many years. It is a musical account of his impressions of Scandinavia, inspired by the various Nordic towns and landscapes, and influenced by the extraordinary music culture. In these light classical compositions can clearly be distinguished the traditional melancholy of the Scandinavian character and music, contrasting severely with the sensitive tranquillity and beauty of the Nordic nature as well as the impetuous seasonal divergence. The 19 recordings featured on this CD represent the inheritance of many years of collaboration between Dave Taylor and Scandinavia and a celebration of the Nordic Countries.

Nordic Dream is a million miles away from what I normally do musically, i.e. Boogie Woogie, Rock & Roll, Big Band Swing etc., and it almost never made it to fruition. I wrote and recorded this album back in 1991. Not knowing quite what to do with it, it sat on my studio shelf for 13 years until one day I made the decision to release it.
Nordic Dream isn''t a collection of songs in the Scandinavian style, but more a collection of memories and thoughts of a time spent in Finland.
