Recorded remotely during 2021-2022 the album took shape in the form of mutual compositions, gradually developed and embellished online. Final recording sessions took place at the majestic Chale Abbey Studios on the Isle Of Wight with Moses Boyd (drums), Tom Herbert (bass) and Siobhan Cosgrove (flute, clarinet) adding elements to several pieces. Tracks include the reflective, wistful single Viento Calido and drifting ambient piece Sabena, a beautiful tribute to Gigis wife who sadly passed away during 2022.
Greg Foat has recorded prolifically in recent years including acclaimed albums Symphonie Pacifique (2020) and The Mage (2019).
Best known for his 1986 ambient masterpiece Wind and as a member of Gaussian Curve, Gigi Masin has enjoyed a revival in recent years through his Calypso album on R&Ss Apollo label and renewed touring. Dolphin represents Greg and Gigis first landmark recording collaboration together. I first heard Gigis album Wind in 2016, remembers Greg. I was living in Miami and I heard it playing one Summer evening. Since then, it has always been in my mind to be able to record together.
"This album is a tribute to the joy of playing together and creating something beautiful and exciting. A sincere hymn to life" (Gigi Masin)
