Image of You
When you consider the innovative music of this new jazz artist Dan Young, on his latest release, 'Image Of You' you'll agree that the astrophysical equation for this CD is: 'One Hot, Must Have, Cool CD for your jazz music collection.' Starting out from humble beginnings Dan's career took quite a turn. In the summer of '92, Dan was selected by the ASU Space Grant Committee for a grant to support undergraduate students to work on space-related research projects. The project was partly funded by NASA and involved retrieving, manipulating, and illustrating archival data on interstellar amorphous carbon from the Hubbell Space Telescope. Can you say 'Amorphous Carbon?' (i.e. Space Dust) His internship ended so well, that for the following semester Dan was selected to be part of a team of undergraduate astronomy students used as teachers aides. Part of this weekly regimen was to take a group of university students up to the roof of the physical science building. Provided the night was clear enough, he would point out constellations, stars and star formations, as well as any other type of heavenly phenomena. Lucky for us. . .Dan was having a change of heart regarding his career path. With just three semesters left from a degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences from Arizona State University's Physical Science program he decided it was time for him to look far beyond the stars and become one himself. To keep his mind off the usual day-to-day grind, Dan played with a variety of local bands using his sax as a way of expressing himself. You could say he was 'blowing off steam.' Dreaming of a better life was easy for him considering all the possibilities of what 'space-the final frontier' had to offer and what lay ahead. Creating jazz was a gift from Heaven and it was time Dan shared it with the rest of the world. His new CD' Image of You' provides the listener a vehicle to explore the furthest reaches of dream by looking far beyond conventional space for a tantalizing taste of soulful, whimsical, groovin' sounds. You might say that 'image Of You' is a type of celestial phenomena that can be seen with an imaginative mind. Rocket Science? -You won't need NASA to figure this out. Dan Young's CD 'Image Of You' is truly a heavenly phenomena. Are you ready for a ride? Then clime aboard and listen to the stellar sounds of this great new artist.
