Dream, The Jon Anderson/Kitaro Collaboration (1992)

Studying Kitaro’s discography over the weekend has guided me to the collaborative music project, Dream released in 1992. It was an ideal discovery with a renewed focus on Jon Anderson’s creativity curve plus the affinity I possess for Kitaro’s music these past 40+ years.

Take  some time to dream along with Kitaro and Jon Anderson by giving a listen to their musical effort.

Two giants in contemporary music have joined forces to create one of the most awe-inspiring albums of the ’90s. Kitaro has taken his signature style into a new dimension of orchestral drama with three tracks featuring the breathtaking vocals of Jon Anderson, from Yes. Anderson, a longtime Kitaro fan, showed up on Kitaro’s Japanese mountaintop and hung out for a month. Their ensuing “marriage” of vocals and music is the result. Kitaro composed the music while Anderson wrote the lyrics. The songs revolve around the eternal theme of love, as in the transcendental romanticism of “Lady of Dreams” and the ecstasy of spiritual liberation in “Agreement”….This is a special album full of soaring emotion and spiritual upliftment. – Source: All Music
