Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The problem in evaluating a newly purchased CD often lies in your expectations. Say "John Renbourn with a bunch of Irish musicians", and you automatically expect lots of fiddles and "boxes", wild and furious, foot-stomping jigs and reels, melancholic songs and beautiful slow airs. Well, I did anyway. And the beauty is certainly there, but not so much of the wild stuff (save track 9, which also features some fine pipe playing). Once I realized what Renbourn's project really was - and in fact it is not all that different from his ambition in general: to mix folk, blues, early music and even Classical into an excellent blend (leaving out the jazz and ragtime influences this time around) - it all started to make a lot more sense to me. This is a rather polished production, mostly soft guitar playing that puts taste and beauty before flashiness, accompanied by clarinets, Irish flutes and percussion, interspersed with trained voices singing a capella. Most of the time it works wonderfully, though very occasionally the ensemble playing could for my taste be just a tad tighter (particular the drum on track 4, which sticks out like a sore thumb to be honest), the only thing preventing me from giving it a full five stars. It is great to see the genius of John Renbourn (no lesser word is appropriate for it) still thriving on this CD, recorded near the end of his fourth decade of performing and recording his unique approach to the acoustic guitar as a solo instrument or part of a small ensemble.
