Dreamsweshare. com announces the release of harmonica legend/composer Lee Oskars NEVER FORGET on January 28 2022. Composed produced and illustrated by Lee Oskar recorded mixed and co-produced by Brandon Busch Never Forget powerfully addresses the atrocities of the Holocaust while also serving as a stirring reminder that great music is a universal force for everything positive and vibrant throughout society. Never Forgets nine largely instrumental tunes are sequenced like a soundtrack. The son of a holocaust survivor Never Forget is Oskars musical memoir - Passages Through Music - telling his journey his and his familys story - but also humanitys story. Never Forget has been called a surreal musical canvas which goes beyond the sound the artwork and the liner notes - its a sonic masterpiece by Jim Clark of The Courier and an emotional musical journey to be savored by Bob Silvestri The Best of WNY. Jim Farber journalist for The Guardian UK writes ... Never Forget features a wide palate of sound from sweeping classical orchestrations and haunting klezmer interludes to intimate sections centered on an oud a flamenco guitar and Oskars own supple harmonica. The albums large cast of supporting musicians includes not only guitarists bassists and drummers but string musicians reed players background vocalists even on occasion the services of an oud player and a flamenco guitarist. Such compositions as Last Moments Saying Goodbye or Liberty An American Waltz resonate powerfully thanks to sweeping orchestrations soaring strings and evocative horn parts. Lee Oskars harmonica lines drive and anchor every selection and in his words hes singing with his harmonica The beautiful opening number Far Away Dreams features soaring melodies and arrangement. Two numbers that directly connect back to the discs theme both Song From Mom and the title track Never Forget feature an intensity and poignant edge that decisively affirm the memories of on one hand a family tragedy that should always be remembered but on the other hand a desire for humanity to never again let that type of horror or ugliness occur. By contrast the songs Liberty and World For Peace have a triumphant celebratory quality that offer a sound of hope and positivity for the future. Oskars mother & her sister both young teenagers at the time escaped from the death march coming out of the Stuthoff extermination camp in Poland and walked across bitterly cold terrain to escape - eventually landing in Denmark. For all my life the things my mother told me about that experience have remained with me Oskar said. Its something I wanted to make certain is never forgotten and in many ways thats always been on my mind and always been a driving force in my work those memories
