descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Recorded live in an Australian National Park on a 15-day walk, this is some righteously original music-making. Denley has the ability to make his alto sax closely mimic natural sounds such as insects and trees and thus tightens their connections to humans. This in turn is marvelously tied in with the nature recordings employed throughout. Most of the time you can't tell what's part of the bush and what's Denley. What a tonic! Everything is brought into a complimentary, intertwined whole. This fulfills the Taoist ideal of merging the human and natural world. It'll be wholly unlike anything you've ever heard before. "Not man apart" indeed."-splitrec



"From the 18th of May 2006, I spent 15 days armed with sax, camera, audio recorders, food and a solar recharger in the Budawang Mountains, a wilderness area in the Morton National Park, South West of Nowra on the east coast of Australia. These mountains are full of dramatic and rugged rock formations, caves, crevices and a hidden valley - it's a wonderland of natural acoustics. Presumably people have been making music in these spaces for thousands of years, but it's almost certain sax hasn't been heard there before."-Jim Denley

"Not man apart" indeed."Richard Grooms - The Improvisor

"The quavering long tones and sustained flutters he favors on several tracks are brimming with subtle shifting timbres, which create moments of sublime counterpoint with the environmental sounds, particularly the waterfalls. Occasionally, he mulls over clipped phrases at length; but, then, so do the birds. This is truly music beyond category."-Bill Shoemaker Point of Departure

"This is music at it's most primal, enhancing the beauty of creation."John Shand - Sydney Morning Herald.

"Wonderful music that defies category" - Tom Sekowski - Gaz-ata
