A collection of original compositions written and performed by Darren Williams:

"an amazing solo saxophone side from Darren Williams" - David Keenan, The Wire, Volcanic Tongue

"Darren Williams is the modern master of circular breathing. Sugar-sweet one second and cracking under a desperate weight the next, oozing warmth and rich with detail, this is the rare sound of a solo saxophone album that won’t have you grinding your teeth to a pulp." - Chris Storey, Bookshelf Boyfriend

“Solo tenor saxophone with nods to Evan Parker and Colin Stetson. However, Williams has taken the initiative to dash ahead of his contemporaries, creating exciting and beautiful compositions that force the listener to forget the wealth of technique at the root of the music.” - Kevin Romain, Bleating Hearts, The SSRIs

"Wild and wooly saxophonistics." - Glen Hall, Exclaim! Magazine
