The Scottish Saxophone Ensemble give exciting and lively performances of new and original music combining jazz, folk and classical music. They have performed around Scotland including International Chamber Music Matters at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow, “Les Rencontres du Saxophone” Festival, Strasbourg and the World Saxophone Congress (Bangkok/St Andrews). The ensemble was formed in 2000 by Sue McKenzie (Delphian Records / Salsa Celtica) and features some of the best of Scotland’s saxophone talent. Their CD, “Mrs Malcolm”, is available through Largo Music (2012) and in 2013 they performed a sold out show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe after being selected as part of the Made In Scotland music showcase.

Dave Stapleton – Catching Sunlight

Catching Sunlight’ is filled with gorgeous melodies, drenched in sensual harmonies and driven by subtle, shifting rhythms and strange, exotic time signatures. The music weaves and intertwines delightful dancing melodies over the rhythm section’s steady, supple pulse. Both the title and subtitle (Music for an Imaginary Film) convey an impressionism confirmed by pianist-composer Dave Stapleton’s writing, which is so well conceived that it s sometimes difficult to separate the written from the improvised.
