Judy Dyble Flow and Change Gonzo Multimedia (HST150CD)

The latest recording from Judy is another step along the route of musical exploration that she has taken over the years. That route never follows the same path from one record to the next, and Judy has moved on from synthesiser loops ('Spindle', 'Whorl') and explosive King Crimson arrangements ('Talking with Strangers') to a very adult song and vocal style in which piano and strings provide a backing that lies somewhere between chamber music and a full performance by an orchestra.

'Black Dog' conjures up that strange lurking presence of depression or fear to which we are all subject, but reassures us that it's all right to have such sentiments. Just acknowledge the Black Dog and then you can get on. It's a salutary message, gently delivered.

'Featherdancing' recounts the musical childhood of Judy and her two sisters, swinging along in gentle triple time, the sound somewhere between a tea-dance and a French café. The light and airy tune and a cheerful vocal are a buoyant celebration of a time full of music and laughter.

'Beautiful Child (Freya's Song)', dedicated to Judy's grand-daughter, reflects on a new life and the future that it holds, a future on which a grandmother muses with hope and curiosity.

'Crowbaby' depicts the life of a fledgling bird and the challenges that it must meet in a harsh world in which a baby must grow and feed on other creatures. Fortunately, at this stage, Mama Crow is still around to reassure her infant. Pat Mastelotto provides some slightly sinister scratching effects that are extremely bird-like in their insistence.

Since her return to the public art of making music, songstress Judy Dyble has released new recordings on a regular basis, each one better than its predecessor. Her latest collection, "Flow and Change", is no exception: A stellar work of intimate, atmospheric reflections on frailty and existence. Dyble's expressive voice, coupled with imaginative musical arrangements, provides each song with an individual character and poignancy that is sorely lacking in much of contemporary music. Furthermore, her lyrical themes are enchanting, a mix of life's wonderment combined with a sense of philosophical maturity. In all, "Flow and Change" is a not only a joy to listen to, it is also a delight for alert minds.

This album has rarely left the CD player of my car since I bought it. Fortunately I live and work in rural landscapes and it is an astonishingly welcome companion on my journeys.
Songs with subject matter from decades apart sit on adjacent tracks: `Letters', the tragedy of a follow-up greeting from two people who have only just found each other in an era when the only mail was Royal, anticipates the nightly farewell to unmet online friends in `Shadows'; like the two versions of Lady Pole at Starecross Hall, `Silence' (the one in an ivory-coloured dress) and `Head Full of Stars' (the other in blood-red evening gown with jewels or stars in her dark hair) reflect their different distance.
`Flow and Change' dances through the last few decades of music with nods to Jimmy Webb and Clifford T Ward that sit totally comfortably alongside something very contemporary. Phil Toms' string arrangements are happily reminiscent of John Cameron's and George Martin's; they work perfectly where they have to, as does Alastair Murphy's beautifully evocative music.
If you haven't yet done so, after playing this album revisit an album by King Crimson, preferably one with the evergreen `I Talk To The Wind', after which you hear `Flow and Change' differently, King Crimson becoming the enhancer.
`Flow and Change' is a most remarkable album, a tour de force with its final eleven minute track, revisiting musical themes in the previous nine with an intricately woven patchwork of lyrics, inspired by the quiltlike quartet of artists, whose artwork and illustrations adorn the album cover and booklet, taking you into yet another media for expressing the tanglewood emotions.
Reviewers elsewhere have described the album as `soothing' and `melancholic', but I find it arresting and challenging.

(Apologies for the length!)

"Flow and change", the follow up to the beautiful "Talking with Strangers" by Judy Dyble, has been released.

I am not going to write a lot about who Judy Dyble is, as there is a glut of information available on the net but I will briefly list the bands that Judy has been involved with, to give an idea of her longevity in music:

King Crimson, Fairport Convention, Giles,Giles & Fripp, Trader Horne, Kings Cross, The Conspirators. She has also had a productive solo career and tends to appear occasionally at Fairport's Cropredy Convention, always receiving a very warm welcome.

SWIRLY, WHIRLY WORDS....

If I were to describe Judy's work to the uninitiated, I would paint a picture of quintessential "Englishness", a singer with fine enunciation and a crystal clear voice. Dig beneath the surface of the initial impression, and you will find a box of delights that surprise, and take you down unknown roads that afterwards you are grateful to have travelled. Amongst the home counties accent and finely woven words which are rich with imagery, there lies more than a sniff of the unexpected, coated in swirls of psychedelia, prog rock and a smidge of folk...

Judy is capable of embracing several genres in one song, as shown on the incredible and epic "Harpsong" from the very well received "Talking with Strangers" album. Her songs often draw you into a contented mellowness and then make you jump and start as a phrase, a solo, or a tempo change knock you out of your passive complacency.
Her ability to embrace so many genres has made her a versatile artist who often says YES to the unexpected, and it takes her to places that we would not expect an artist with her history to go.
