Jazz At Berlin Philharmonic VI: Celtic Roots
Not yet reviewed.
Track by track, this illustrious group of quite exceptional performers finds myriad ways for tradition and innovation to coalesce, right from the first chant of the bagpipes in Fraser Fifield's "Psalm".
"Willie Murray's Reel" is given a wholly new character with a fascinating range of guitar sounds. "Lament For The Children" is turned into a multi-layered and constantly changing improvisation. "St. James InFIRMary" has a truly celtic final section, and comes across with a new vigour and forcefulness.
It is in moments like this that the excitement of the Berlin audience in the hall come through palpably to the listener of the CD.
