Dream Waters

Dream Waters Cover

A truly passionate reflective solo album by veteran Chapman Grand Stick player Leo A. Gosselin. Gosselin’s sensitivity to this remarkably innovative stringed instrument is captured in all its splendor and clarity—a beautiful soothing instrumental work. Leo’s love for the beautiful melody is apparent in his playing style and his selection of pieces. “Dream Waters” opens with a soulful rendition of Chick Corea’s “Crystal Silence”. On this piece, Gosselin blends the sweet melody and chordal work together such that the two sides of the Stick become one. Also scattered throughout this work are Stick arrangements of traditional Celtic folksongs as well as a single Leo Gosselin composition titled “Spanish Circles” which carries on the lyrical qualities of his other selections. “The selections on this album were compiled in the hopes that they would convey a sense of serenity, peace and quiet contemplation to the listener. The images on the front and back covers were taken in the early morning along a New Mexico highway. The water was a welcoming delight beckoning me to stop and behold it—even if only for a minute—enough time to capture its ephemeral beauty before it would transform itself, leaving no trace behind in these arid flatlands. Enough time to look in awe, to think quiet thoughts, to breathe life in deeply...and give thanks”
