Amy Dickson - Catch Me If You Can

Growing up I often said that if I put my mind to learning an instrument it would be either the Violin or the Saxophone, because they are two musical instruments which have a lyrical quality about them.  The rock bands I have grown to love, include a sax or violin in them - think The Frames or Dire Straits (eg Romeo and Juliet).

Dickon's album features arrangements of music by John Williams, the late Michael Kamen (so sad that he left us at 55) and Knopfler's Local Hero.  The arrangement of 'Local Hero' is awesome.

After the last note faded, given the journey the album takes you on. I thought maybe I should revisit my dream and seek to learn the saxophone.
