5.0 out of 5 stars They've Done It Again! Another Great Album!, 28 Nov 2013
This review is from: Transatlantic Sessions,Series 6: Volume One (Audio CD)
Transatlantic Sessions 6 rings some changes with Aoife O'Donovan and Teddy Thompson's first appearance... and they don't disappoint. Love the combination of Artists and combination of voices on this CD, and the arrangements are suberb. Unusually, Bain opens the CD with a set beginning with a Lament... this is a measure of the brilliance and confidence of Transatlantic Sessions... Bain and House Band then move seamlessly and apparently effortlessly into the second part of this set with two sparking reels! Listen out for Russ Barenberg in 'Rhinehart mode' on Halloween Rehearsal. A great album. Looking forward to the next two volumes... worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Depth of sound and feeling, best yet., 3 Dec 2013
This review is from: Transatlantic Sessions,Series 6: Volume One (Audio CD)
If you had told me a few years ago I'd still be listening to these sessions I would not have believed you but here we are and it gets better all the time. What catches me immediately is the richness and resonance of the ensemble playing - a far cry from the sometimes strident and shallow 'diddly dee' playing of some trad players. The warm sounds wash over and around me, and at times it is so plaintive - track one with Aly B, that it brings an emotional 'surge'. New to me and very impressive are Teddy Thompson (son of Richard) with a fine distinctive voice and style, Maura O'Connell, whose voice has great depth and maturity, and a surprisingly catchy gaelic number from Julie Fowlis. And Aoife O'Donovan - I need to be careful here! ............good song, voice and delivery and I have to say looked great on the TV sessions. Keep it coming, folks!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Transatlantic Sessions,Series 6: Volume One (Audio CD)
I thought series 5 of Transatlantic Session had lost some of it's sparkle, probably just reflecting my musical tastes more than anything. However, series 6 turned out to be one of the best yet, with a great mix of artists, songs and tunes. As usual the house band is exemplary, and it's just amazing how many artistes from home and abroad give up their time to be involved in these sessions, this time including one of my favourites - Mary-Chapin Carpenter - for the first time.
It doesn't really break any new ground over any of the previous sessions, but if you like their style you won't be disappointed.

This recording is a wonderful recording of the show's first two episodes. If you love the programmes you'll love the Cds
Very poignant performances from the fab Mary Chapin, uplift songs from Teddy Thompson and of course beautiful playing from messers Bain and Douglas, great bluegrass from Tim O'Brien and such a fab supporting super group you can't fail to love it!
