Product notities

"Cluck old Hen" is the first vocal album from Joel Fafard in this decade. The previous three have been solidly instrumental-stunningly good instrumental-with a richness of original tunes or traditional material re-imagined. But like many performers, what's on his CD isn't necessarily all that happens in the concerts; and Joel Fafard was singing these songs live and-his words: "Everybody was asking which albums they were on and I got tired of saying 'none of them'". So here's a somewhat different program and it's a great one: solid playing (nobody's surprised at that; he remains one of our most powerful, rhythmic purveyor of country blues/roots, original and traditional) with his trademarked string trio: Fafard, guitar, Richard Moody, violin/viola and Gilles Fournier bass. Moody's bow adds an often-haunting layer of nicely spooky, mysterious underpinning; Fournier is the sort of bassist that's rare today: understated, solid, content to remain in the back and propel the trio forward with rock-solid rhythms. There are moments when they play with such cohesion and intimacy it sounds like a single instrument. Few players in acoustic music today know how to really listen to each other as well as these guys. Front and center is the Fafard guitar, lean, lanky, alternately pounding and heartbreaking; not a superfluous phrase or lick, never a note out of place. It's a delightful disc of good old tunes (only one track here was unfamiliar to me) and it's impossible to pick highlights but Angeline the Baker has always been a personal fave and he does it true, tight and to a "t". A new album from someone who's previous work has been a favourite is always approached with a little trepidation. No fear here-Fafard is in fine form, at the top of his game, his guitar howling in the wind and pounding from the dirt roads where the blues live. In a long string of great recordings, it continues a tradition of greatness. Buy two; you'll want to give one to someone you like. Jurgen Gothe (former host of CBC radio two's Disc Drive)
