Nick Beggs - The Darkness In Mens Hearts (cd)

Topped and tailed with two new pieces, Nick Beggs's Burning Shed label debut is a compilation of the solo Chapman Stick pieces from his two albums, The Stick Insect (2000) and The Maverick Helmsman (2004).

Containing superbly executed lyrical and atmospheric sketches that by turns suggest Modern Jazz (Metheny, Pastorious), Art Rock (Tony Levin), Ambient, and Classical guitar recitals, The Darkness In Men's Hearts is a consistently engaging and meditative experience that displays the more introspective side of a most extrovert performer.

With Nick currently enjoying success with both Lifesigns and the Steven Wilson band, The Darkness In Men's Hearts provides an ideal opportunity to sample the work of one of Britain's most distinctive bass players.
