Neil Charles: Dark Days

Neil Charles is a highly regarded bass player and composer, His Dark Days composition is a very special project based on the book Dark Days by the American writer James Baldwin.

Dark Days is a fascinating book that deals with some of the issues of race and identity in the USA. Neil has integrated some of the words from the book into the compositions, and these are delivered by vocalist Cleveland Watkiss. The group also features Pat Thomas on piano and Mark Sanders on drums.

Running time approx. one hour and 40 minutes including interval.
