Dreamin’ is Q-Some Big Band’s debut album and contains an hour of homegrown music: 10 sparkling new compositions by the Q-Some Composer Hub. There is great variation and at the same time a clear common line: there are no more boxes. These are musical painters swimming through many waters, skilfully playing and writing, with a brush, painting knife and everything else they can get hold of.
