THE MEMPHIS YEARS

The Memphis Years is the second solo release by composer/saxophonist George Cartwright, best known as the leader of Curlew. The Memphis Years pays tribute to Cartwright’s five-year involvement in Memphis' well known music scene, and features some of that city’s best musicians. Cartwright returns to the collaboration he first employed on Curlew's A Beautiful Western Saddle with noted lyricist Paul Haines [Tropic Appetites, Escalator Over The Hill] and vocalist Amy Denio. Curlew guitarist Davey Williams also appears. The result is a blending of strictly composed songs sung by Denio and composed and semi-improvisational jazz-oriented instrumentals that might be comparable to the certain aspects of the ESP label sound updated. Cartwright fuses these seemingly disparate styles into an eloquently coherent musical experience.
