A contemporary and varied album of many textures, and also a personal journey. On In A Space Outta Sound Nightmares on Wax's seal of quality is evident.
Infectious but simple rhythms, Quincy Jones-esque synth lines, the blues, and the fusion of relaxed dub and Balearic melodies, as well as Burru drumming on 'African Pirates' and a touch of Eastern harpsichord melody on 'Damn'. Of course, the other factor in George's formula is the touch of glowing warmth that infects his music. As the Times newspaper once said, 'George Evelyn is one of those people who can bottle sunshine'.
The personal aspect on this release comes through in his amalgamation of lifelong influences, ranging from Curtis Mayfield, Quincy Jones, Sarah Vaughn and Duke Ellington's lively compositions, which were all played in the Evelyn household plus the Carribean Soca / Calypso from Leed's dancehalls.
