THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY

"Dark's vocals are smooth and measured: the added element of fragility that was noticeable on Trouble In Paradise is often apparent and adds another emotional level to his interpretations of these often melancholy and downbeat lyrics."      Bruce Lindsay - All About Jazz

TROUBLE IN PARADISE

"This is a fine collection — a left-field take on the classics that reminds us how an artist's vision can throw new light on old favorites. The album's high point is "Trust In Me." Written by Robert and Richard Sherman for Walt Disney's film version of The Jungle Book (1967) It was sung in the movie by Kaa the python as he planned to eat Mowgli, the story's hero. Dark turns the song into a seducer's tale — plausible yet ultimately a lie, the promise of safety and faithfulness is given to the accompaniment of Freeman's smooth saxophone. Who could fail to be swayed by such charms? Or, indeed, by the equally seductive charms of Trouble In Paradise." Bruce Lindsay - All About Jazz
