»•  Their 5th CD and their first in over 4 years, Zorn’s most delightful and popular instrumental unit returns with nine compositions inspired by the imaginary worlds of fantasy literature. Featuring some of Zorn’s catchiest hooks and plenty of fiery solos from Ribot, Saft and Wollesen, “Pellucidar blends soul, surf, jazz, minimalism, rumba, tango, samba, exotica and more in classic Dreamers style. Accompanied by a 36–page booklet filled with colorful art by Tzadik’s exclusive designer Chippy, Pellucidar is a long awaited addition to the sparkling Dreamers legacy! Exotic music for the 21st century that is an absolute delight from first note to last.”Description from Wikipedia:
»•  Allmusic said “It’s similar to both The Dreamers and O’o, but the playing of this group never gets old. ...Pellucidar is another great offering from Zorn’s most accessible project”. PopMatters stated “The peculiar thing about Dreamers is that despite the stunning musical acumen of all involved, they aren’t really what one would call a “musician’s band”. Their performances are impressive, but in a subtle way. There are no flights of fancy, just an atmosphere to drape over your senses. When a cozy blanket is covering you, you don’t think about the individual fibers. And when you listen to a Dreamers album, you don’t think about Trevor Dunn’s time in Mr. Bungle. You think about how sweet life is and how having another Dreamers album is now a part of that sweet life.”

»•  Composer John Zorn has been so busy with various projects lately that it’s easy to forget that his Dreamers ensemble hasn’t been active lately. They were certainly off to a stupendous start with their 2008 eponymous album. O’o sprung up the following year and their momentum, at least temporarily, seemed set. Their following release was part of Zorn’s Masada Book Two series, Book of Angels, playing music that, while composed by Zorn, was not composed with that ensemble in mind. Then in 2011 they dropped a Christmas album, which I initially thought was a gag. Nope, it turns out that Jewish musician and composer John Zorn is highly serious about Christmas music and wanted to make his own recording of “Winter Wonderland” along with a handful of Yuletide originals.
