Gig-a-Blog™ (Anam Cara, St Anne & St Agnes)

Friday, 29 February 2008

A very fine vocal trio specializing in a-capella-ness, improvisation and music from an interesting range of places. I bought their CD. Good good.

Highlights included, but were not limited to:

  • Hullamackadoo - lively, exciting nice driving rhythm, interesting harmony
  • A Georgian tune, I might find the name - or not. Spacious, hovering, long distances. Long notes, little movement, fantastic. Incredible control, quietness.
  • Accentuate the Positive: Very good. They actually swing. Oh yes.
  • That Cat song, you know - good solos.
  • Another Georgian piece: Hymn-like. Again a spacious feel. Long phrases. Rather wonderful.

... and plenty of other good things besides.

This lot know what they're about, do a great show, and interact well with their audience. Oh and 66.6% of them are music therapists which makes them extra-Good Eggs.
