This review is from: The Hearts Of Empty (Audio CD)
My life is so enriched by having Dakota Suite in it!! For over 15 years, quietly, discretely, Dakota Suite have evolved. powerful emotions are wrestled with, made into words and sounds. Dakota Suite also represent the value of love in being with another soul. Johanna Hooson's photography is the perfect companion to her husbands musical creations. Dakota Suite have included various other musicians over the years. The main creative forces being Chris Hooson David Buxton, with initially Richard Formby and Colin Dunkley as the other two creative forces. Sometimes Dakota suite is instrumental, sometimes with heartfelt beauty in poetry. The topic, in many ways central to Dakota Suite has always been the human condition. It is Chris Hooson's way of making sense of the world, of powerful emotions, Love, Passion, Sadness, loss.

The Hearts of Empty is very different, a jazz affair between David Buxton and David Darling, a jazz cellist. The atmosphere is again soul searching, but more upbeat, and lighter.The photography is also different, but influenced by Johanna Hooson. David Buxton is behind the lense. It is a strange suituation, in many ways this is a joint production of just the two davids, but somehow it is quintessentially Dakota Suite. There are no ego battles within the creative collective which is Dakota Suite.

There is some odd material which compliments the predominantly jazz music, the Ladder, M-theory,both completely different from the rest of the mood and sound of the tracks, but as I say highlighs and complements rather than jars
