'Evolution' is the debut album from UK Jazz Trio EYES SHUT TIGHT.
Eyes Shut Tight is the latest project by Double Bassist/ Composer Paul Baxter. Eyes Shut Tight, as a band, relies heavily on the interplay of it's members and the "..strong melodic, compositions.." provided by the band leader, Paul. The inspiration behind this project was the great feeling when these musicians performed together. Whatever they were playing came alive and that is exactly what happen when Paul brought his Compositions to the outfit.
Eyes Shut Tight's name describes the "..intuitive group dynamic.." and because a number of the tracks were born out of political and social ideology describes the blinkered mentality a lot of people have towards the world.
Paul feels that these are some of his best compositions from the last 5 yrs and he loves performing with this outfit.
The group have been performing on/off for the last 2 yrs and only over the last year have been performing the material from 'Evolution'.

sound world.”
