Silver Medal Winner for Outstanding Achievement in the 2023 Global Music Awards!
Night Set is the first release on AMP Recordings for Award-winning concert saxophonist Matthew Younglove.
The album gets its name from its namesake composition by Gregory Wanamaker, which was the thematic impetus for this recording project. The time of ‘night’ has fascinated and inspired humanity for as long as we have recorded history, from the fear of the dark to myths and beliefs in increased spiritual presence in the darkest hours of the evening. Night brings a time of darkness, the absence of light, which triggers the human imagination creating complex and powerful emotions.
This album contains six works that explore various aspects of nighttime: dreams, shadows, darkness, dawn, quiet, monsters, and spirits.
