5.0 out of 5 stars Finally caught up with this album ...., 19 May 2010
This review is from: Live In Seattle (Audio CD)
... I'm not sure what took me so long. I'm often disappointed by live recordings but this is music that gains its vitality through live perfomance especially in the hands of master musicians. Martin Hayes is a wonderful lyrical fiddle player but the star for me is Dennis Cahill; his guitar accompaniment is ethereal and understated, with a lack of ego that allows Hayes to explore each melody and lets each delicate arrangement breathe. The standout is the second track which fuses together about a dozen tunes over 25 minutes! I thought it might outstay its welcome but it's inventive and mesmerising throughout.
I noticed the comment about Dowd's No 9/Come West Along The Road fading out and share that reservation but I don't think it detracts from what's gone before. In the performance of those tunes Cahill and Hayes are also exploring slightly different territory with is looser swing and jazz inflections.
The Lonesome Touch is my favourite of their albums but this is a beautifully recorded cd of the alchemy that happens when Cahill and Hayes play live together.
