Title - 'Tales From The Dreaming City'
Artist - Mark Wingfield

For those not in the know, Mark Wingfield is a guitarist and composer based in the UK where most of his music is rooted in jazz, but he is also active in contemporary classical.

Highly respected among his peers for his original and distinctive electric guitar playing, much of his musical work ethic is directed towards performing and studio work.

He has recorded numerous albums as a leader, and has recorded or performed with internationally acclaimed musicians including: Iain Ballamy, Kevin Kastning, Asaf Sirkis, Yaron Stavi, Thomas Strnen, Jeremy Stacey, Dwiki Dharmawan, Robert Mitchell, Nicolas Meier, Jane Chapman, Ren von Grnig, and amongst others, Christoph Leistner.

Fueled by the momentum generated from two landmark 2017 group efforts - the Wingfield-Reuter-Stavi-Sirkis quartet's magical The Stone House, and the leaned down Wingfield-Reuter-Sirkus trio effort, the potent Lighthouse (both critically acclaimed works of extraordinary creativity and vision) - Mark Wingfield's sophomore effort for MoonJune Records, Tales From The Dreaming City launches into the cosmos (July 20th, 2018), from the space station where his stellar MJR debut, 2015's Proof of Light docked.

1. 'The Fifth Window' (5:10)
2. 'I Wonder How Many Miles I've Fallen' (7:19)
3. 'The Way To Hemingford Grey' (5:54)
4. 'Sunlight Cafe' (5:58)
5. 'Looking Back At The Amber Lit House' (6:47)
6. 'This Place Up Against The Sky' (6:05)
7. 'At A Small Hour Of The Night' (7:52)
8. 'A Wind Blows Down Turnpike Lane' (3:15)
9. 'Ten Mile Bank' (5:36)
10. 'The Green-Faced Timekeepers' (7:52)

As you'll be able to tell from just looking at the tracklisting, storyteller Mark Wingfield loves his song title-naming experiences. Each one could be a stand alone chapter in a beautiful, long, embracing novel, they are simply just that beautifully created.

We begin with the soaring 'The Fifth Window,' a track that also showcases perfectly what is to come, and that's backed seamlessly by both the more pronounced, tempered 'I Wonder How Many Miles I've Fallen' and then the genial build of 'The Way To Hemingford Grey.'

The methodical 'Sunlight Cafe' is next and is itself followed by one of my own personal favorites on this brilliant new album, the precise workmanship of 'Looking Back At The Amber Lit House.'

A more free flowing track is up next in 'This Place Up Against The Sky,' which is backed by the footsteps intro to the gently reverberating 'At A Small Hour Of The Night.' The heat is turned way back up on 'A Wind Blows Down Turnpike Lane,' with the album rounding out with both the paced 'Ten Mile Bank' and then the artsy, playful 'The Green-Faced Timekeepers.'

Rejoined by the sublime rhythmic engine of Yaron Stavi, on fretless bass, and supreme drummer, Asaf Sirkis, the innovative guitar impressionist carries his unprecedented expansion of the electric guitar's sonic palette of sound and expression into further uncharted dimensions.

The session is augmented by a guest appearance from fellow MoonJune artist, keyboardist Dominic Vantomme, whose tasty synth work decorates four selections.

The compositions are as spellbinding as Mark's far-reaching guitar work and the trio's sensitive corporate delivery. Listening to these brand new ten tracks, you will instantly be star struck about this ambitious new release, as Wingfield's adventurous, pioneering guitar work transports you to destinations previously unreachable.

In closing, Tales from a Dreaming City is immediately essential listening, further cementing the artist's position among the instrument's most radically unconventional practitioners and its most forward-thinking tone architects, ever.
