Too Old to Die Young – James Gilroy Kane

Too Old to Die Young – James Gilroy Kane
How would you define this CD? Rhythm & blues rock, with folk and country influences? Seems like a new grassroots folk music has emerged over the last coupla decades without us really noticing...
There’s that feeling of quality here that comes from an old hand doing what he knows best. This is earthy, honest songwriting, well delivered...

Pelican Crossing – Blue Jar (Caravan Music)

Pelican Crossing – Blue Jar
An eclectic mix combining Django, Grapelli and Satie, with a touch of klezmer plus a twist of Jeeves & Wooster all wrapped up together. Marvellous! Let the gentle freneticism of a more cultured past lifts your spirits...

Tara – Brian Abbott (Dakini Records)
From Daevid Allen’s glissando guitar compatriot, a big, bold and at times faintly bonkers CD dedicated to Tara the obviously-not-very-shy-and-retiring Tibetan Goddess. ...

The Great Departure – Shaun T Hunter (Local Nobody Records) The Great Departure – Shaun T Hunter (Local Nobody Records)
Picking up a number of awards at prestigious music festivals, Shaun has been flying just out of the spotlight for some time. Will this be the album that shows up on the big screen?

A Distant Bell - Caroline Lavelle (Ringing Tree Records)

A Distant Bell - Caroline Lavelle (Ringing Tree Records)
It's taken a few listens to really delve into the textures of this CD, but it is increasingly rewarding. This is deeply felt music for its own sake and is truly a joy to discover amidst a world full of so much blandness, complacency and unoriginality.

One-Two Punch – Liquid Soul (Telarc)

One-Two Punch – Liquid Soul (Telarc)

An Audience of Angels – Llewellyn (Paradise Music)
For a change, best-selling New Age composer, Llewellyn, dons his singer-songwriter cap, which fits rather well. There's some nice touching songs here...

Drawn Straws - The Strato Ensemble Drawn Straws - The Strato Ensemble
Certainly one of my favourite CDs of 2007 so far, do click through to the full review even if only to hear the smaple track! Really the best track on the CD is Empowering Gamesake at 24 mins, but the one featured should give you an idea of what these ambient free jazz fusionists are about...

Come to Shiloh – Vividity (NorthernWood)

Come to Shiloh – Vividity (NorthernWood)
A fine collection of slightly retro electro-pop from smooth-voiced Andrew Pederson on his first solo album. If you like his voice, you’ll most probably like the CD.
