Producer Chris Orazi’s Avenue C presents the new CD entitled Dream Taxi. The songs and instrumental passages are cinematic in scale. Evolving orchestrations combine pop, experimental harmonic movement, live jazz, orchestral arranging, passionate vocals and electronic colors. The ride will journey you through mysterious beats bedded in ambient guitars; jazz vocalizing dancing to world rhythms; a power horn section over driving guitars, all wrapped in symphonic soundscapes. Dream Taxi is a journey, a listening experience analogous to visiting a magic carnival or watching a surreal dream. The productions take the listener to a place beyond predictable barriers often surrounding us. Avenue C’s Dream Taxi is the vehicle to take you there again and again.
