Once again, another brilliant recording from a prolific master of modern and classical electric violin playing, this has hidden depths and improves every time I hear it. Having been introduced to Ed Alleyne-Johnson's skill the first time I saw him busking in the city of York and listening afterwards to my wife's gift of his album "Echoes" I am convinced that he is one of the most memorable musicians ever to adorn the streets of York (as well as New York). I have not heard of him playing anywhere in concert but, if he ever comes back up North, I would certainly queue to get tickets to hear him.
If you like what you hear, have a listen also to David Garrett for that full orchestra feel on record or in concert.
If, however, you are impressed by a musician who is capable of creating the affect of a full orchestra, managed single-handedly on Electric Violin with the aid of his self-made acoustic device, then you cannot miss the sound of Ed Alleyne-Johnson.
