Album Description

Dreamchaser by Ancient Future debuted at #2 on the May 1989 Jazziz National Airplay chart. It received a 10 out of 10 rating in CD Review. "This one will sweep you off your feet! Dreamchaser establishes Ancient Future as a world-class music group. A dazzling variety of instruments are heard, from sitars and guitars to violins (acoustic and electric) and keyboards, and percussion instruments from African talking drum to dumbek, gamelan, cymbals and kalimba. This is an exciting album that really moves, and features one cut in the 'spirit of the Andes'." – Heartbeats, Backroads Distribution "Indonesian campus radio listeners picked Gamarock off the Ancient Future album Dreamchaser as the #1 jazz song. Gamarock received 400 points and Edge of a Memory received 125 points out of 2000 points counted weekly for all songs. Trisakti University is the biggest private University in Indonesia and they are critical in jazz and pop songs. When they say they like it....THEY LIKE IT." – Srahreza, Campus Radio DJ, Jakarta, Indonesia

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
