The dynamic duo's best work,
This review is from: Wet Map (Audio CD)
Wet Map is, for me, pianist Carolyn Hume's and percissionist Paul May's most successful and complete CD.
It's less introspective than other work, its confidence and upbeatness reflected in track titles like Spaghetti Gangster and Signal to Snails. May's percussion is more jaunty and pacey, whilst Hume employs an array of keyboards to great atmospheric affect.
They're joined by a few guest musicians such as guitarist Bernt Rest and Lewis Gibson on violin, not just to add background colour but to add significant and imaginative layering to tracks.
The final strength of this CD is that each track sounds distinctive and intriguing, making you want to listen many times to get the full effect.
If you are going intrigued by this duo and are not sure where to start, try this first. You won't be disappointed.
