4.0 out of 5 stars Scottish Jazz Funk, 8 Dec 2002

This is John's second release with this band & this one is a lot better than the first (which was pretty good!)
John Rae has got together a group of about 6-7 fine Scots from very differing musical back grounds & created here a really wonderful record, that brings together 2 related, but seldom paired musical traditions: Folk music with all its solid rhythms & beautiful lyrical melodies & Jazz with its fluidity, power & improvisation.

I love this record & put it on regularly, it is full of vigour & colour without being over-bearing. The other Celtic Feet records are good too.
