The saxophone virtuoso composes and performs material inspired by poet Edwin Morgan.

Download includes - cover art

Borne from a project commissioned by the Glasgow International Jazz Festival Beasts of Scotland showcases two of the finest talents of the Scottish creative arts scene: saxophonist Tommy Smith and poet Edwin Morgan. This is not the first time Morgan has collaborated with musicians, he has also collaborated with various composers on opera librettos and his own poems have been set to music by (among others) Martin Dalby and Archie Fisher.

The illustrations in the booklet are by Neil Boyce, Glasgow School of Art - winner of Beasts of Scotland Art Competition 1996 sponsored by Linn Records.


'The pairing of Tommy Smith's compositional talents with Edwin Morgan's poetry has produced a work that is, let's not get all modest about this, absolutely wonderful.'
