    E_L_B [Erskine/L/Benita]: Michel Benita (bass instrument); Nguyn L (electric guitar); Peter Erskine (drums, timpani, percussion).
    Additional personnel: Stphane Guillaume (soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone).
    Nguyn L's guitar playing recalls John Abercrombie's more liquid moments on this 2008 release (his seventh), as he leads drummer extraordinaire Peter Erskine and bassist Michel Benita through a set of dream-like but never gauzy tracks. Le's songs are compelling and complex, as on the standout "Plan 9," which suggests the majestic wide-open frontier of space as well as the shambolic goofiness of the movie of the same name. Saxophonist Stephane Guillaume guests on a few numbers.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.77) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "DREAM FLIGHT offers a balance between dreams and flying, mood pieces alternating with rockers and the occasional swinger....This is well-played music performed by top-flight musicians..."
    JazzTimes (pp.98-99) - "Erskine's briskly swinging 'Twelve,' highlighted by outstanding solos from Benita, Guillaume on tenor and Le on warm-toned, reverb-soaked guitar, serves a virtual clinic in the art of brushwork."
    Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.46) - "The album opens with the whimsical title track, composed by Benita, who allows ample room for his cohorts to make their own brush marks on the song's languid chord changes."
