Songs from the Center of the Earth is a solo recording by veteran British jazz saxophonist,
composer, and band leader, Barbara Thompson. On Songs from the Center of the Earth, the rich yet plaintive sounds of Thompson's saxophones seem to ring through the mists of time. Her compelling solo improvisations on ancient melodies were recorded over two hot summer nights in August 1990 at the historic Abbey du Thoronet in Var, Provence, France. "I have long thought
that folk songs lie dormant at the center of us until recognition is triggered by an experience," she says. "As the Abbey dates back to medieval times, I thought it fitting to play traditional church and folk pieces from all over the world, some of which are older than the Abbey itself."

The warm, resonant setting enhances Thompson's updated interpretations of Irish airs, twelth century Crusade chants, Syrian love ballads, ancient Spanish cradle songs, and folk melodies from Greece, Germany, Jamaica, Brazil, and Uruguay. Performing on soprano, alto, and tenor saxophones, Thompson draws on her extensive jazz background to embellish this music with expressive pitch bends and glissandos that bring these age-old tunes firmly into the twentieth
century. Sometimes gently reminiscent, sometimes powerful in their evocation of timeless emotions, Thompson's masterful improvisations provide an eloquent commentary on the past.
