Jim Denley


Jim Denley- alto sax & recording


Recorded live in an Australian National Park on a 15-day walk, this is some righteously original music-making. Denley has the ability to make his alto sax closely mimic natural sounds such as insects and trees and thus tightens their connections to humans. This in turn is marvelously tied in with the nature recordings employed throughout. Most of the time you can’t tell what’s part of the bush and what’s Denley. What a tonic! Everything is brought into a complimentary, intertwined whole. This fulfills the Taoist ideal of merging the human and natural world. It’ll be wholly unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. “Not man apart” indeed.
