Ryan Teague is a Bristol based neo-classical composer who uses Reich-ian techniques to come up with a lovely melodic form of instrumental songcraft that sits somewhere between the minimal composers and easy listening muzak. Now if you think my use of the latter term is a put down, it isn't meant to be. These compositions use glistening vibraphones and haunting saxophones in creating soft-on-the-ears vignettes that at times recall Woo's intimate recordings but have a jazzier texture as the album wears on which sometimes reminds me of Tortoise's oddball take on easy listening.
