In 2019, Romanian pianist Sorin Zlat started working on his new album The Land Of Dreams, which contains original works. The project enjoyed not only a well deserved success in Romania, Europe and the United States, but also gave rise to a new collaboration. With styles ranging from cool jazz, to post-bop, latin, flamenco,funk, avant-garde, the proposed project is a testament to the universality of music,with musicians coming from generations and different schools of thought,but unified by the common language of jazz. Basically this is the idea of the album,
The Land of Dreams being a realm of all musicians where music is a universal language.Sorin Zlat Trio concert will include personal compositions from previews albums and new creations that are included on the current album of the pianist.
