Kevin Kendle's melodies float low to the ground. Unlike the twinkling celestial compositions usually produced for sleep, PURE DREAMING evokes the deep, sonorous pleasures of an ocean swell while maintaining an exacting rhythm designed to lull the listener into deep, natural sleep. Opening with the bright tones of "Skylark" and on through the morning-lit "Sundial" and the smooth "Gliders," this instrumental work paints scenes that perfectly illustrate their titles. Part of a series of albums that includes PURE RELAXATION and PURE ENCHANTMENT, PURE DREAMING is the perfect background for meditation or relaxation, as well as a useful sleep aid, although it would be a shame to sleep through the album's closing track, the haunting "Nightfall."
