Andy Mackay-saxophonist, oboe player, widely-respected film and television composer, and founder member of Roxy Music-was born in Lostwithiel, Cornwall but grew up in Pimlico in central London. He discovered both classical music (thanks to his father, a talented amateur pianist) and rock 'n' roll (thanks to the BBC Light Programme and Radio Luxembourg). In 1978, a trip with his wife Jane to China inspired a second instrumental solo album, 'Resolving Contradictions', which featured Roxy's Paul Thompson and Phil Manzanera as guests. Roxy then reconvened for the 'Manifesto' and 'Flesh and Blood' albums, and the tragic death of John Lennon in 1980 led to perhaps Andy's most recognised saxophone solo on record, on the group's respectful and heartfelt cover of John's 'Jealous Guy', an international N.

Resolving Contradictions. Overview (current section).

Resolving Contradictions is an album by British musician Andy Mackay, released on Bronze Records in 1978. Andy Mackay was once Roxy Music's saxophonist, and some members of the group happen to play on this record. This opus is a "concept album" with references to the Chinese culture. The cover, designed by Jane Mackay, figures a sort of post-Cultural Revolution scene. And the sound of most of the numbers relates to what a western world audience could "know" about Chinese music. All songs are by Andy Mackay; except "Battersea Rise" by Ray.
