Jason Sharp - The Turning Centre Of A Still World [Constellation Promo]

Put on the circuit via 1997 launched Canadian imprint Constellation Records is "The Turning Centre Of A Still World", the latest, eight tracks and roughly 45 minutes spanning, album outing created by saxophone player Jason Sharp. Considered to be his first true solo longplayer according to the accompanying press sheet and, like many albums these days heavily influenced by restrictions and measures applying due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, Sharp utilizes his instrument of choice alongside his very own pulse as a trigger signal for various modular synthesizers and sampling devices on this one to create a calm and beautiful, widescreen cinematic take on what is best described as Deep Listening Music, resembling the atmosphere right after an epic sunset which is also depicted in the cover artwork provided by Daichi Saito, bringing forth multiple layers of electronic athmospheres in combination with echoes of echoes of (Neo)Cosmic / Berlin School and, most importantly, Sharp's oftentimes subtle, yet emotionally touching, longing sax movements which perfectly complement the panoramic backgrounds to create an essential, slightly autumnal and inward looking listening piece for Ambient lovers and score collectors alike. Recommended.
