about

Solo electric guitar album with a reflective mood mirroring the fading light at the end of the day. Original pieces and some modern jazz tunes are mixed with songs from the 1980’s and traditional songs from Sweden, Scotland, North America and England culminating in the haunting third mode melody of Thomas Tallis (1561).

'... this drew me in helplessly ... it's the intent ... and the mood as well as the sincerity of approach that counts ... well worth discovering'
Stephen Graham, Marlbank

'... the notes being played hang in the air like butterflies caught on an updraft but whose own elegance and perfect sense of balance allows them to defy being s.wept away'
Ian D. Hall, Liverpool Sound and Vision

'... a challenging set of electric guitar instrumentals ... impressive harmonic sensibilities'
David Innes, R2 Magazine

'.. a collection of beautiful meditations ... takes time over every note and lingers in the deep, dark spaces between them ... conjures many images - empty, broken cathedrals, mist-drenched lochs, darkened cafes on rainy streets'
Adrian J Walker, iTunes

'..managed to transform the disparate starting points into something original ... throw away all preconceptions of jazz guitar indeed discard all preconceptions of anything - pour a glass of mead and enjoy'
Lance Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here
