Nigel Bellis has composed numerous emotion driven soundtracks for TV and film - and it shows in every track on this album. He has the gift of being able to provoke a reaction, feeling or memory for listeners, and transport them "into the track."
One moment we are in Cuba as the revolution reaches its climax; the next we are driving in South Beach as Miami becomes a vibrant party town.
For those who enjoy smooth jazz there's the beautiful tenor sax solo (Gato Barbieri style) of She is the One.
Wave Watching at Sunset, Moon Dancer, and Her Picture are perfect with a glass of wine late at night, while the orchestrated sound of Dance for Me makes you feel good to be alive.
Nigel is a pianist and really gets the chance to demonstrate his classical training on Tempestuous.
Cool, sophisticated, with a hint of nostalgia - this is a unique album you'll want to replay time after time, especially if you have romance in your heart.
