Fiona's Comments

Stirling sax stuff. Head notes of iodine and peat, with a warmly glowing clarinet hang over. Taps out nice too.

About the Album

Ardnave (Mike Stever, trumpet; Randy Gloss & Chris Payne, percussion; Phil O’Connor, clarinet) is built around a strong Scottish sounding melody that just popped into my head shortly after my honeymoon in Scotland. As I wrote it down, I was transported back to the northern coast of Islay where Erin and I spent an afternoon walking among sheep to an empty beach.
