The Dreamers is an album by John Zorn released in 2008 featuring performances by a band which would later become known as The Dreamers.[1] It is viewed as continuation of the Music Romance tradition expressed on his 2001 album The Gift.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars stating "This set is not only a fitting complement to The Gift, which was fantastic in its own right, but is an actual next-step recording: it's focused, tight, humorous, and a gas to listen to from beginning to end".[2]
