Ian Close and Dominic Beeton
THESE TWO TRACKS ARE FROM THE ALBUM ESSENCE BY MYSELF AND DOMINIC BEETON... HERE ARE THE ALBUM NOTES
Established TV composer and keyboard player, Dominic Beeton teams up with top sideman saxophonist Ian Close to produce a jazz album embracing dubstep, acid jazz, new age and mainstream jazz styles. Dominic and Ian Close regularly played in jazz bands together and talked of collaborating on a jazz album for years. Eventually the window opened and Dominic wrote the 13 tracks on this album. There is something for everyone here from the spiritual opener, Water from the Well inspired by Chalice Well at Glastonbury through the dub-step infused Carpathian with its wild filtered sax and warped synth lines to the glorious acid jazz celebration of Temptation. Sizzling playing throughout, jazz does not get as diverse and engaging as this. Very accessible. Very now.
