With its languid pace, string enhancement and sliding guitar melody, “Dolphin Dreams” glides along as gracefully as, well, a dolphin underwater. Ritenour evokes a dreamy feel on the track that gives way to a dramatic break before returning to its initial tranquility. There are tunes in Ritenour’s catalog that are jazzier than this, but if you’re seeking a gentle, pretty piece of music, perhaps to unwind after a stressful day, this is worth checking out.
