"Ideas for "Zweite Meer" started to flow in F.S. Blumm's head while being on the road. Traveling down the west coast from Canada to Mexico with Greg Davis and e*rock, it could not have been any other way. Behind the car window landscapes kept morphing during the length of one day. Breathing in in the morning, diving through the desert, arriving in Las Vegas at night. Outside and inbetween: the horizon, the sky, expanse and distance. The origins of huge gestures and great popmusic. Inside F.S. Blumm's head: Burt Bacharach, Tom Jones and - not far away - Brian Wilson.With this record, Blumm takes up a coherent row of releases. Having finished "Sesamsamen" (almost a "symphony for friends"), he initially wanted to realise "Zweite Meer" on his own, but fortunately he never sticks too grimly to his own concepts. Thus, the listeners are able to enjoy the sweet voices of old friends on horn, clarinet and saxophone, crowned by Blumm's favourite human singing voice: David Grubbs."
