Product Description

Colin Steele's album "The Journey Home" won the Best Album category in the BBC Jazz Awards for 2003, as well as winning plaudits in all of the major end-of-year polls. This is the long-awaited follow up album which Colin recorded for the ACT label in late 2004. Once again taking as its template the idea of fusing jazz composition and improvisation with traditional Scottish melodies, Steele's trumpet playing references many of the masters - Kenny Wheeler springing to mind immediately - but it has a voice all of its own. The compositions reflect Colin's heritage, growing up around the folk melodies of Scotland while learning about jazz. The result is an album that is more fully formed than its predecessor, incorporating all the elements together to make something truly special. Musicians in the band for this record are drawn from the same fertile Scottish scene as the leader, the standard of musicianship uniformly high. Features Michael Buckley (saxes), Dave Milligan (piano), Aidan O'Donnell (bass) and Stu Ritchie (drums).

Another superb melodic and thoughtful CD from Colin Steele fronting an excellent band featuring the outstanding Irish sax player Michael Buckley.This is even better than his last CD which won a number of awards.

It is a real pity to have to pan a CD by an artist with the skill and imagination of Colin Steele. For not only is he a superb trumpeter, but in his two previous albums for Caber, he has found a distinctive voice, which is at once different from much other jazz and has a full and totally natural freshness. It was with much anticipation that I awaited "Through The Waves". So why am I so disappointed with it?
In Steele' previous albums - "Twilight Dreams" and "The Long Road Home" there is an elegance, spaciousness and genuine newness in the music. The albums are fantastically well recorded. And they seem very much band performances often with a wonderful freewheeling feel and plenty of individual contributions. Each track feels individual and different. Some of Steele's tunes have a distinctive Scottish flavour, others have edges of funk or a modal groove, and some are heart-rendingly elegiac. Taken together the tunes on these earlier CDs give the feeling of completeness, as if they have taken one on a highly satisfying journey.
In contrast, "Through The Waves" on the one hand lacks the qualities that made its predecessors so delightful, and on the other brings nothing new to Steele's artistic armoury. True, the music is well formed and finely played. But it is if Steele has got stylistically stuck with diminishing artistic returns. For TTW lacks that essential quality of character and voice that its predecessors enjoy. The problems are threefold. First, despite the same studio and engineer as the previous two CDs the recording quality on "Through The Waves" is, rather surprisingly, markedly inferior. Secondly, both the playing and the arrangements seem less exuberant. It's as if someone or something has reined them in.

Extremely relaxing and thoughtful contribution from Mr Steele.
I first heard of Colin Steele's Through The Waves after visiting Michael valentine studio website. Judging by the review, Steele has very relaxing trumpet sound. "Through The Waves" was highly recommended; so I thought I would take the plunge. I'm glad I did. I have had this C D for two weeks and it continues to evoke many relaxing images and thoughts. Love it!
