To “Keep the Dream Up” is advice my wife Madeleine gave me. The subject of dreams became a part of this project. For starters, it has always been my dream to record with Joe. We have played gigs for years in trios and quartets but a record had yet to be made until now. I chose the name for the recording but hadn’t told the guys yet when Joe said it was “a dream given form.” A marvelous coincidence? One band member wrote to me right after “pinch me, did that just happen?” and another said he felt like he was floating for hours after.
