Nathalie et Olivier Daviau - La terre est froide (Noëls – Chabrettes Limousines) (2013 France) @320

This Christmas album has quite an interesting story.
In 1985, Nathalie and Olivier recorded a tape of traditional christmas tunes, most of which were borrowed from Abbot Victor Porville's book "Lou chabrettaïre de nadalou et de nostra dama".
They made a recording in the chapel of Claude Girard village. Olivier played on bagpipes and Nathalie accompanied him on the organ and also played on chabrette. It was one of the first recordings, which in addition to chabrette attended grande chèvre.
Unfortunately the original recording no longer has been published because of technical problems.
In 2013, Nathalie and Olivier with their friends re-recorded the album, giving us the opportunity to hear the very same Christmas music.
The only thing that has changed, so it is the quality of recording - it is a little better.

Claeys, Paris, Chabenat, Decombel - Live en Flandre (Belgium/France) @320

Contribution from an Anonymous FY's friend.
Thank you. This album deserves!

Here are four musicians who do not claim to form a group as evidenced by the lack of a name for this ensemble. The cover says he is simply the meeting between the two protagonists of the 1995 CD (already ...) "Water and almonds", Frédéric Paris and Gilles Chabenat, (I will not make you The insult to present you ...) and two Flemish musicians then quasi beginners at the time and who have made their way since, thanks to the influence of this recording of the past century ;-). Accordionist Wim Claeys is now well known, particularly for its role in of Ambrozijn and Tref . He also played for several years in duo with Marteen Decombel, certainly the least known of the four thieves here, guitarist and mandolin player who also rotates with the bagpipe Remi Decker and with Wim Claeys in Goze and works with Urban Trad , Ambrozijn , Naragonia Etc ...

If, as I said in the introduction, our four musicians do not pretend to form a real band and if this recording is more simply presented as the recording of a concert in 2005, it is quite different from listening : The listener can only feel the true symbiosis between the four instrumentalists and if the clarinet and, to a lesser extent, the hurdy-gurdy, are sometimes a little more on the front, there is really a group sound that does not incite Not at all to realize
an analytical listening musician by musician. It is much more enjoyable to be caught by this overall sound at the service of an expression present at each note. Moreover, the quality of the sound recording is almost that of the studio.

Hardly any new melodies here but of the picks of well chosen standards. The advantage of being called F. Paris or G. Chabenat is to be able to draw standards in his own repertoire. They do not deprive themselves of it and it is not I who will complain, especially since the way they revisit them justifies these new recordings. Mr. Decombel and Mr. Claeys also each brought a piece.

"In Flanders" certainly evokes for some of you a scottisch from F. Paris and, for others, one of the most beautiful songs of our traditional repertoire ("We will go to Flanders"). In order not to be jealous, the two succeed each other here, the second in a truly gripping version from beginning to end, with just the right thing to return to the theme from time to time. Also note a very nice resumption of the mazurka "L'anternaire" (here, it is written like that!) more minor than ever ...

Etienne Grandjean & La Belle Société ‎– Étienne Grandjean & La Belle Société (1995 FRA) [320]

Author, composer and performer, Etienne Grandjean is a virtuoso of the diatonic accordion. The musician subtly explored the world of circus and fairground festivals. At the option of a rich sound palette here means a slow waltz, there inflamed java, some jazzy gypsy or skids. Melancholy alongside humor and, over the pieces, plays instruments that take the audience on a festive round which, like the Ferris wheel, will make you dizzy. In this musical carousel, La Belle Societe leads the way. But Who forms this Beautiful Company? Well, alongside Etienne Grandjean, saxophonist Vincent Burlot and bassist-guitarist Job Defernez become magicians who open the doors of our enchanted dreams. So take a seat. Ladies and gentlemen, the show begins!

Susan McKeown - Prophecy (2002 USA) [256m4a]

There's something really archetypal about this superb Irish singer, a NYC resident for over a decade now. The motto of her company Sheila-Na-Gig Music says a lot: New Music from the Old World.

Not the old country, as it used to be called. Susan McKeown's vision and inspired take on Irish music has been uniquely global.

It's not a record cheapened by marketing genres. The intermingling of folk, rock, jazz, world music, and sounds that bear no bin-worthy name rise and fall, swelling to tsunamic crescendos and falling to pin drop silences of spooky guitar loops, Michelle Kinney's haunting cello, and the depths of sorrow and glory that Susan McKeown is so uncannily capable of creating.

Prophecy is a record of many brilliant moods, all songs written or co-written by the artist. Co-producer and fine guitarist Jon Spurney co-wrote the music to the title track -- its lyrics are inspired by a W.B. Yeats passage included in the liner notes. The poetry of Emily Dickinson is also featured: Susan and her friend Natalie Merchant do a memorable duet on "Because I Could Not Stop For Death," set to music by the artist.
