ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Beautiful beyond words. AMAZON.COM

A masterclass in finesse THE IRISH TIMES

The above words were used to describe “Across the Black River”, the first duo recording by world renowned Irish Fiddler by Kevin Burke and the wonderful composer, arranger and musician, Cal Scott. Kevin Burke (of the Bothy Band, Patrick Street and The Celtic Fiddle Festival) and Cal Scott have got together again to record a follow-up to that highly acclaimed first release. The new CD is entitled “SUITE” and features guest appearances from Beoga, currently one of Ireland’s hottest bands, from double bassist Dave Captein who has played with such luminaries as Mose Allison, Wynton Marsalis and Larry Coryell and also from some of the Northwest’s finest classical musicians.
The music heard on “SUITE” is a combination of traditional, contemporary and self-penned pieces. The CD also highlights a beautiful new work called “The Irish Session Suite”. This new work contains 10 traditional tunes arranged in Four Movements for string quartet. Kevin’s fiddle leads the classical players through Cal Scott’s masterful score producing an absorbing blend of Traditional and Classical string playing. The production values, musicianship, arrangements and repertoire selection are all of the highest quality.
The transitions between styles are seamless and give testimony to the beautifully skilled arrangements heard on this recording. The pre-release response suggests that “SUITE” is destined to be regarded as one of the most exciting and intriguing folk music CDs of the decade.
