Liner Notes:
Windycroft, the house where this music was recorded, on the cliffs overlooking Hastings, has been associated with music throughout its existence. The man who built it gave the first performance of Tchaikovsky's b flat piano concerto in this country and other composers such as Wagner were friends of the family. However, the ghosts that linger within its walls must have been somewhat surprised last summer, by music the like of which they had never heard before.
Unlike some albums which get their strength from perpetuating one mood, this one gets it by covering a wide spectrum of of emotions without sacrificing consistency of style.
The approach is to predetermine the mood, feel and structure of the piece, as well as the themes, but to allow the maximum of freedom within those parameters. Precise timing is the essence. Whether it superficially has a rock feel such as 'De Dublin Ting' or is free like 'Dear Roland', the musicians are always conscious of the pulse and know exactly where they have to lay down their lines in relation to it.
With this album, this rhythmic structure is perhaps less dominant than in some of Trevor Watts' earlier albums, Cynosure (reissued on HFHCD018) for example. The musicians, having worked on the problem intensely, can now rely upon the experience having been absorbed into their subconscious, allowing them greater freedom with line and self expression. But still nothing is slack and it is this above all that gives the different feelings unity and cohesion. It has freedom with knowledge and not to cover up the lack of it. Trevor's music is jazz based but he has never been hidebound by that tradition and he is able to incorporate the best of other musical practices, whether it is a rock drive, Asian micro-tonality or North African methods of circular breathing. If it can help to get over a musical idea it is valid. The result is a very rich album.
