Sands of Aberdeen
(Full Disclosure Caveat)Having seen Jed Marum perform live on many an occasion, and having bought all his albums, guess one could say I am a fan, so this review of his latest endeavor may be a bit on the biased side.
This album is dessert for the ears. This collaboration with Morrison and Brown among others (including Jamie Marum)is a mix of Irish, Scottish, and Canadian ballads and tunes, but it is more. Marum's artistic sense seems to grow with each album. In this album the musical archivist/troubador includes the personal (Uncle Joe) as well as historical ( the title tune and "Rock & Tide"). Usually a soloist, in this outing he brings in incredible musicians, not just as posse,but they are given solo turns as well. Something there is to be said about a recording that has fellow friends who are also professional musicians. The added energy gives this album an "in the livingroom" feel. If you are new to Marum's music, this album will convince you to check out the others he has. If you have not seen him perform, put it on your 'to-do' list. Yeah, he's that good.

Sands of Aberdeen
Sands of Aberdeen is one of the best Albums, yet!
Jed Marum has outdone himself once again, this time with fellow musicians of outstanding caliber. Jed's wonderful voice and playing combine with Hugh's and Mason's expert musicianship to make every tune a delight to the ear. I love the way he makes some of the rather esoteric Scottish and Irish lyrics more understandable to my American ears. The instrumentation is wonderful. I have listened to this CD via my iPod every single day since it arrived from CD baby ! Have a listen and you'll know why !

Sands Of Aberdeen
Jed, As a personal friend of yours, I may be biased, but you have done it again! Sands Of Aberdeen is a masterpiece as are your other albums. Best of luck with it. Can't wait till we sit side by side and play some tunes together again. See you next August at Windham NY. Rich Mendoza (Musician-Libby Prison Minstrels & Cumberland Blues)

Wonderful Stuff
This is wonderful stuff. Jed Marum, a favorite singer/guitarist/writer of American Celtic music, teams up with some first-class instrumentalists including Mason Brown and Hugh Morrison to play a variety of Scottish, Irish, and American songs. There are also a couple fine tune sets. The CD has a nice acoustic feel as if the lads were playing for you in your living room. The production is excellent. The vocals are clear and never lost in the accompaniment, and you can hear the individual instruments on all the tracks.

The CD includes Marum originals as you would expect. “The Sands of Aberdeen”, like many of his songs, lifts a bit history out of a book and turns it into an emotional, living thing. The liner notes call “I Love the Way Your Earth Moves” a simple song of thanksgiving, and it is – with more real feeling in a few simple verses than a month of Contemporary Christian radio. My personal favorite is “Uncle Joe”, a song about good man Marum worked with when he was younger and never forgot. The words are moving, but it’s also a lovely piece of music and would be my favorite even if it there were no words. The rest of the CD has mixture of well-chosen traditional songs and songs by other writers. Notably, there are two rousing and rollicking songs by the great Brian McNeill – The Rock and the Tide (rousing) and the Belles of Ontario (rollicking). The Sands of Aberdeen is a fine CD that I already enjoy listening to over and over.
