Cornish, Bill: Waking Dreams

Bill Cornish is a name I have been familiar with a few years now having reviewed his solo album Kaleidoscope and some of his work in his fusion band The Odd Get Even. His new disc is titled Waking Dreams and will be a delightful listen for fans of melodic jazz.

The opening track “Zephyr” features only Cornish on piano, synth and percussion. The keyboards float along in tasteful fashion as the sound remains crisp and ultimately relaxing. A Latin feel can be heard on “Palapa” with its rollicking piano and world flavoured percussion. The excellent organ solo is an album highlight. “Catamaran” is another laid back piece, very catchy and featuring some great saxophone courtesy of Nathan East. The funky groove in “Incognito” and its wonderful flute and sax solos, again laid down by East and the mesmerizing cosmic-like “Axial Tilt” where the huge drum sound reminded me of Gabriel’s Security album are more album highlights.

Cornish proves he is an exceptional keyboardist with Waking Dreams. Anyone into the melodic side of jazz would do well to give this one some spins. It will be well worth your time.
