ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The second official release from DTM follows up on their first with a sampling of improvised compositions that are diverse yet focused. Ambient Jazz Fusion would one appropriate label to describe the sound of this album. These cinematic landscapes reveal the creativity of seasoned players comfortable enough to take chances with each other and follow where the imagination may wander.

Deep Tree Mantra (“dTM”) is a collective of musicians from varying styles and backgrounds. Their common ground is a shared vision of music as a spontaneous expression of the human spirit. dTM offers listeners improvised music rooted in the fundamental belief that Music is Prayer. The sound is continuously evolving and expanding into new directions. dTM plays with a mutual respect for each voice expressing an honest reflection and inquiry into our current divisive branches & common roots. Welcome to the world of dTM. Please make yourself comfortable. And don't be a stranger.

Bob Hornsby

Soothing tones for a harried world
With the Tea Party threatening to bring down the US Economy, unemployment persistently high, another case of pinkeye going around at your kids' preschool, and another heat wave on the horizon, sometimes you just wish you could be a tree, or a cactus, or some kind of plant, close your eyes, breathe through your leaves, and find some peace. Deep Tree Mantra's Music for Plants is the next best thing ... I've been listening for the past week on the house system, on my headphones, even on the laptop speakers, and find something new in each listen. The inspirations are varied, and these guys play together and play off each other seamlessly and beautifully. Given his recent tragic death, David Hartley's guitar has for me a particularly haunting and melancholy quality that grounds the lighter flights of Robert Hitz's piano and Buzz Conway's flute and trumpet. The Hornsby/Cooper rhythm section pulses gently but convincingly, providing the meat and potatoes that makes this plant food something into which you can really sink your teeth. Two branches up.
