Album: John Renbourn, Palermo Snow (Shanachie)
Sunday 27 February 2011
Not really "folk" at all but a programme of music for solo guitar (and occasional clarinet) drawing on three centuries of complex harmony; or at least the harmony which appeals to the gruff old Pentangle picker.
So we get J S Bach, Satie, Jelly Roll Morton and Randy Weston, shades of Schubert and Sicily, plus several compositions drawn out in music-box style, most charmingly in "Weebles Wobble But They Don't Fall Down" (not to be confused with the famous étude by Debussy).
