Two dreams remembered over the course of four nights - this has to be some kind of record
Tuesday I noted remembering an ocean liner dream from the night before. This morning I woke up and knew I had been dreaming about seeing a concert at the Candlestick Maker, a performance space run by Michael Zerang in the northwest Chicago neighborhood of Albany Park that I described in "Making Candles with Michael Zerang and Fred Lonberg-Holm." A quartet was playing with Peter Brotzmann on reeds and Hamid Drake on drums. I've seen both play at the Candlestick Maker more than once so that part and was listening their intense duo disc The Dried Rat Dog before going to be last night so that part is easy but I find two elements of the dream more difficult to understand, or at least more interesting. Brotzmann and Drake were playing with a bassist and trumpeter but I have no idea who the musicians were. What I do remember is both were tall black men with slender builds and light complexions. The bassist had dreadlocks and was wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. The trumpeter had a green button-up dress shirt on and khaki pants. The other thing that stand out is that I have no idea what the music this quartet was playing in my head sounded like. There just is no sound in my memory.
