The Inward Eye


"The Inward eye" has been recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Javier Monteverde at Cezzane Producciones de Madrid. A record composed and performed entirely by Emmet Crowley along with Basque Jazz reference Ander Garcia on double bass. A record beyond  contemporary Jazz paths, ostensibly oblivious to labels since its inception with "The Inward Eye", inspired by the poem "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" by english romantic poet William Wordsworth where this guitar player joined by Ander García in 11-4 beat masterfully transit the oniric, inviting the listener to take a look at its own inner gaze. "Song for Pahola" (A play of light and shade) examines  he inevitable duality between darkness and light, taoist concept, two opposing and complementary forces that coexist throughout the song, both relative and which Crowley balances through each and every one of its passages. Balance that is revealed again on "Alentejo 5am" with Ander García's masterful introduction on double-bass while  Crowley travels between romance and joy as opposed to tragedy and melancholy. "Anaia" refers to Tunisian musician Anour Brahem and his music from the most personal and non-transferable point of view from British guitar player, while "Cabuya Island" along with "Alana painting pictures" delve into the timelessness of the moment, in the eternal instant, capturing and evoking soundscapes inspired by the vastness of the ocean and putting an end to the record.

Emmet Crowley's inner gaze through his own compositions takes us to the place where everything starts and where it all ends, giving us back the primal magic of who we really are. The beauty of "The Inward eye" takes us away from the storm that takes place right before our eyes and invites us to the infinite instant that we all carry inside.
