Sandy Denny was a great singer and very appreciated until her untimely death. This album is probably her best known and has a truly timeless quality which I hope we have preserved. Dark End of the Street pipes are particularly suited to the feeling of the lyric.

Barbara Dickson was born on September 27, 1947 in Dunfermline, Scotland. In the 1960's she began making her name as part of the burgeoning Scottish folk scene of the time alongside Jack Beck, Archie Fisher and Rab Noakes. Turning professional in 1969, Barbara cut three acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful folk albums for Decca Records. On the advice of Hamisch Imlach she moved to the north of England to expand her career on the folk circuit. Fate intervened in 1974 when friend Willy Russell offered her the singing role in the hit Beatles' musical "John Paul George Ringo…& Bert". Hits such as "Answer Me", "Another Suitcase In Another Hall" and "January February" followed throughout the late 70's and well into the 1980's, with regular appearances on TV in shows such as "Scotch And Wry" and "The Two Ronnies". By 1985 Barbara was selling out major venues such as London's Royal Albert Hall as she enjoyed her first number one, "I Know Him So Well", with Elaine Paige.

A ground-breaking recording of some of Philip Glass’s most iconic music, transcribed for saxophone by Classic BRIT Award-winning classical saxophonist, Amy Dickson, in celebration of Philip Glass’s 80th birthday. Amy Dickson’s love for Philip Glass started 10 years ago when she discovered his violin concerto, a work which features on this album. This expressive work is arranged for saxophone by Dickson herself, as is the violin sonata for which Dickson had to learn a new technique to master the work; circular breathing.

Freddie Dickson is a London born musician who apparently sings "like someone has jabbed a blade into his vena cava." Signed to Columbia Records in 2014, Dickson cut ties after feeling he was becoming lost in the major label machine. He has since re-recorded and written a bunch of new songs that make up his debut album 'Panic Town,' a collection of modern gothic anti-anthems.

A ground-breaking recording of some of Philip Glass's most iconic music, transcribed for saxophone by Classic BRIT Award-winning classical saxophonist, Amy Dickson, in celebration of Philip Glass s 80th birthday. This album continues Amy Dickson's in-depth exploration of the works of leading contemporary composer, Philip Glass, who celebrates his 80th birthday in January 2017. Amy Dickson's fascination with Philip Glass's music began 10 years ago when she discovered Glass's Violin Concerto. After many hours transcribing the work for the saxophone and learning circular breathing in order to master the work, Amy recorded the Concerto on soprano saxophone in 2008 and this recording has been remastered for this release. Last year, Amy set herself a further challenge - one more difficult than the original - to transcribe Glass's Violin Sonata. She has also recorded two pieces from the film 'The Hours', which have been arranged for saxophone and piano especially for this album.

When it comes to the soprano saxophone, some of us might think right off the bat of New Orleans legend Sidney Bechet, which is good. But most think of Kenny G, which is not so good. When it comes to women who play the saxophone, we might think of Candy Dulfer, who is definitely a good player. However, she has a tendency to be ruthlessly commercial and suave, and perhaps that's also not so good. With Australian Amy Dickson we discover a female soprano saxophonist who is offering something far different from either of these mixed options; her main focus is with classical literature, and Dickson has a luscious, creamy tone that sounds somewhere between a clarinet and a flute, reflecting the instrument in the light of the intentions of its creator, Adolphe Sax; even Bechet would have found it tough to beat that action.

Sony has packaged this album like a 1980s disc of music to snog by, but the saxophonist Amy Dickson’s new release is an intriguing and entirely serious collection of recent works by Australian composers, works she did much to create. The title work, premiered by Dickson in 2012, is a late score by Peter Sculthorpe. The first movement is sun drenched and full of yearning, the saxophone soaring over a teeming orchestra; the second is a more unsettled expression of homesickness. Ross Edwards’s concerto entitled the Full Moon Dances – recorded, unlike the rest, live in concert – is elegantly scored and evocative, especially in the opening Mantra, in which the saxophone interweaves with the orchestral soloists, and in the pulsing, almost Stravinsky-esque First Ritual Dance. But it is Brett Dean’s 2007 flute concerto The Siduri Dances, here arranged for saxophone, which offers the most wide-ranging demonstration of Dickson’s mastery with its note-bending, buzzing effects and hectic rhythms.
