Wise Dreams and Fables of the Sky is Ultra World X-Tet's third and latest release. Give it a listen and you'll discover beautiful melodies, innovative compositions, compelling improvisations, and contagious grooves. The artistry of the group is unleashed with full force.

Co-produced by Gary Schwantes and Jerry Stucker (Headhunters), the album begins with the bluesy feel of Southern Comfort and the driving celebratory groove of Golden Snake Dance. Those tracks set the stage for the drama and mystery of Wise Dreams and Fables of the Sky (tracks 03-06, inspired by The Odyssey). From beginning to end, the album will take you on a funky, mythical musical adventure.

Ultra World X-Tet is based in San Francisco, where the group's performances have delighted audiences and garnered rave reviews.Their sound has been described as "psychedelic world jazz," "world fusion," "world class" and other colorful labels. Whatever you want to call it, it's exciting, it's different and it really works. This unique San Francisco sound with a world music flavor will transport you and fire your imagination.
