In a Dream

In a Dream was produced by Tony and Peter Chotem. It was recorded at Studio Phoenix, North Vancouver, BC. Engineered and mixed by Tony and Peter Chotem, & mastered by Jamie Sitar at Outta Town Sound, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Original graphics and layout by Marilyn Chotem. Manufactured by Disc Makers in Pennsauken, New Jersey, USA.

Compositions about people, places & dreams of the heart from brothers Tony & Peter Chotem, sons of Canadian pianist, composer & arranger, Neil Chotem. Formerly Montrealers, Tony & Peter have realized their family legacy as composers, arrangers & performers in Vancouver, BC since 1998. This new, all original instrumental jazz album developed "low & slow" between 2012 and 2022. It features four of Tony's compositions, four of Peter's & one of their father's.

The philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, once said, "Without music, life would be a mistake" – a mistake Tony & Peter weren't willing to make.
