Two years after releasing his highly acclaimed 2015 album, Natural Perception (ENJA Records), Tobias Meinhart returns with his ponderous and compelling sophomore release, Silent Dreamer.



This album is decidedly darker than his debut, both in tone and in subject matter, as Tobias makes use of a tonal palette more familiar to brooding alternative and popular music. Lumbering straight-8th grooves, synthesizers, effects pedals, Rhodes and electric bass all coalesce underneath Tobias’s melodic modern jazz sensibility to form a single sound that is at once engaging, grating and cathartic.

As implied by the album’s title, Silent Dreamer is intended to recapture the essence of the unconscious imagination: He seeks to represent both ethereal daydreams and bitter nightmares, as well as all the invisible worlds that live between the two. Tobias says about his new album: “When improvising and composing, I like to think of myself as a ‘SOUND-PAINTER’ adding strokes to a canvas and bringing it to life.”

Tobias cites Wayne Shorter and Carla Bley as influences for the compositions on Silent Dreamer, but with the addition of band members Charles Altura (Chick Corea, Terence Blanchard) and bassist Orlando le Fleming (Kurt Rosenwinkel and Branford Marsalis), this band can easily be seen as not only influenced by great masters, but as touched by their direct lineage.

Silent Dreamer’s core is Tobias’s two long-term collaborators, pianist Yago Vázquez and drummer Jesse Simpson. Jesse is a long-time friend and collaborator, and Yago shares an apartment with Tobias in Brooklyn, putting the two musicians in an ideal position to practice together and form a unique bond and a cohesive aesthetic.
