Together, this superb ensemble covers the whole terrain of Irish traditional music and then seamlessly integrates jazz, gypsy (Django-style) and touches of rock 'n roll. "Indifference" demonstrates O'Connor's skills in the breezy musette waltz style, "The Mountains of Pomeroy" displays Hayden's gorgeous tone and poetic phrasing on a lovely air, and O'Dowd shows off his earthy, heartfelt singing on the ballad, "Believe me Sligo." O'Dowd is also a superb guitarist, but you need to see them in person to really get that.
The title of the CD is appropriate, because they cover a lot of ground, all of it beautiful. While there's no substitute for hearing this top-drawer band in person, GOING PLACES is an exciting excursion in Irish music. Highly recommended.
