Product Description

"A beautifully conceived and executed set by Scottish trumpeter and composer Colin Steele. Mellow and melodic without being in the least backward-looking, Steele¹s music has instant appeal. He is a superb instrumentalist, but never succumbs to the temptation to show off his technique. If pushed to find a comparison, I would say that he reminds me slightly of the master of understatement, the late Art Farmer, but Steele is definitely his own man. The band consists of three top Scottish musicians, pianist Dave Milligan, bassist Brian Shiels and drummer John Rae - plus a southern interloper in the form of saxophonist Julian Argüelles. Together they make a beautifully crisp ensemble sound." The Observer

This CD is find of the century for me. The compositions (all by Colin Steele) range from sublime beauty to breath-taking excitement, and the playing is quite simply stunning.
Steele has brought together a team of musicians that, as a band, stand up to any jazz group in the world; the rhythm section of Dave Milligan (piano), Brian Shiel (bass), and John Rae (drums) play with an incredible awareness and understanding of the music, while the two horns of Steele (trumpet)and Julian Arguelles (Tenor & Soprano sax) intertwine with long, searching melodic lines that defy comparison.
This, of course, is not to say that the musicians don't get a chance to shine on their own. Steele's soloing is consistantly lyrical and creative throughout, while the contributions from Milligan and Arguelles are equally as compelling (check out both their solos on "The Sidestep"!). It's so encouraging to hear a jazz group from a nation as small as Scotland producing a wonderfully defined sound with a unique sense of style.
This is quite simply a sensational recording. If you only buy two albums this year, buy this one twice.

Trumpeter Colin Steele has been around the Scottish jazz scene for quite a while now, but Twilight Dreams is his debut CD. Dedicated in memory of the late mother of his daughter, recording it must have been a labour of love because this is quite simply a beautiful album
The tracks reflect an eclectic range of influences, from Lee Morgan style Hard Bop on Nicky's Song to pre-fusion Miles Davis on Cheeky Wee Monkey. The whole album is tinged with the blues, nowhere more so than on Slipped Disc, but there's also a hint of the music of Steele's native land on the two ballads, Fanfare for Café Graffiti (a lovely elegy for a now defunct Edinburgh club) and A Wee Prayer.
A mixture of styles there may be, but Twilight Dreams is no mixed bag when it comes to quality. It never sags and the tracks all hang together well. Steele's playing is measured, relying on precision rather than power. This is no one man performance, however: it's a superb ensemble album, with Steele sharing centre stage with Julian Arguelles on saxophone and Dave Milligan on piano, the latter in particular contributing some memorable solos.
Twilight Dreams is the sort of disc that you can play at any time of the day, quite a feat for a jazz album. It will appeal to the jazz lover and might even win over a jazz sceptic or two. Album of the year by a mile!
John Watson
