about

Direct Current is a collaborative project recorded concurrent with the Daniel Crommie with Glyn Havard album "Between the Darkness and the Dawn" featuring Daniel Crommie, Jon Miller, Paul Evans, Bo Parker, Paul Parker, Thomas Filardo, Brian Davis, Leslie Gray, Glyn Havard and Larold Will.

"Closing song "Psyclones (coda)", which is the Havard co-write, takes the album out on a high with the Vangelis like keyboard pulses not only adding an urgency often lacking on Direct Current, but also offering a more obvious link between this album and Between The Darkness And The Dawn. The winding flute melody and little bursts of acoustic guitar add an airy, floating feel to the music that leaves you hugely uplifted and I really like that the only vocal on the whole album is sung as the disc fades out."

"Outside of the rhythms the main focal points centre on Crommie's keyboard layers as they set the scene for his flute playing, Leslie Gray's stunning violin and viola contributions and Paul Evans alto-sax. The results can at times be quite melancholy and while the electric ideas working alongside the acoustic instruments is always an interesting mix of styles and ideas..."
