Dreams So Real

Dreams So Real is an album by vibraphonist Gary Burton featuring compositions by Carla Bley recorded in 1975 and released on the ECM label.[1]The album reached number twenty-five in Billboards Jazz albums charts.[2]


The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 4½ stars stating "Generally regarded as one of Burton's top three recorded dates, it has stood the test of time. Perhaps some day, a complete collection of the vibist playing Carla Bley's many other compositions can be compiled to complement this surface-scratching but very important album".[3]
