True Life Trio, “Butterfly Dream” — Leslie Bonnett’s strings set the dream’s scene, a breathless sweep across a vibrant panorama. Its lavish cry boasts many colors, from Eastern Europe pine to that space between sleep and consciousness. This prelude then summons a celestial wave exacting in its execution and startling in its complexity. Bonnett, Briget Boyle and the Juliana Graffagna, the song’s composer, dip, dive and soar before Graffagna alights to unfold a harmony-laden fantasy melding beautifully with hope. “When we wake,” she sings, “the sun will find us.” But no such search is necessary: True Life Trio is its own illumination.
