What Happened To Steve Eliovson?
Skyler A. Thompson | Los Angeles, Ca. United States | 09/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album surfaced in 1981 from ECM and was just and still is a masterpiece. Steve Eliovson unknown to me at the time with the late Colin Walcott of Oregon fame on percussion. The piece that stands out to me most is Venice, which I was told was written with the Venice, CA in mind not Italia. Since the album came out Eliovson was not to be heard from since. I believe he's from South Africa. If anyone can solve the mystery, please engage me. This album is highly recommended."
A special album of the sun

"It was 1981, I was a UCLA grad student sharing a house with friends in West LA. I'll never forget waking up one morning, with that soul-warming SoCal sunshine coming into the screened patio, and an FM radio station playing this album. I stopped everything and just sat on the sofa, listening to this music, entranced. Afterward I had to go out and buy it, and it has always been one of my favorite albums, something magical, something uniquely special. The music is indescribable, and the guitar playing simply phenomenal. I have 100s of albums, but nothing even similar to Dawn Dance; it's a little like Oregon, but more melodic. A couple of years ago I asked the same question as another reviewer here--what happened to Steve Eliovson? How could anyone so incredible, artistically, just disappear? It's great to see that his only album has at least come out on CD, but the distributor needs to find a way of letting the world 'rediscover' it again."
