Build An Ark - Dawn (2007)

Dawn is the follow up to Build An Ark's internationaly acclaimed debut full-length Peace With Every Step. Featuring an amazing cast of instrumentalist/composers including Dwight Trible, Nate Morgan, Adam Rudolph, Phil Ranelin, Derf Reklaw, Munyungo Jackson and nearly 30 others, and lead by producer Carlos Nino (Ammoncontact, Hu Vibrational, The Life Force Trio, The Sound Of L.A.) Build An Ark have created a modern masterpiece that tells of the coming age of transcendant consciousness and healing vibrations.
Celebrated for their collective creativity and ensemble improvisation, Build An Ark find themselves in that magical place where John & Alice Coltrane, Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, and Joni Mitchell are one in a cosmic soul music that is both topical and metaphysical. From this mystical place, Build An Ark share a message of love for all life in the universe.
With 10 tracks total, 7 new originals flowing wonderfully with 2 classics by Pharoah Sanders and
the great "Love, Sweet Like Sugarcane" by living legend Big Black (who's played and/or recorded with everyone from Sun Ra, Quincy Jones, Bill Cosby, Marvin Gaye, Randy Weston, Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba and Muhammad Ali), who joins the group on vocals and djembe, Dawn is a release that will resonate with music lovers of all kinds. The die-hard aficionados and the fresh- eared unitiated will find themselves connected by this incredible genre-bending offering that revels in the glory of cooperative expression and positive, heart-felt intent.
