O’s Notes: This has an exotic feel, a combination of Asian chants and African rhythms over a Latin base. The result is a funky world fusion beat that though difficult to describe, it is easy to enjoy, certainly unique. There is some excellent flamenco guitar work throughout the session especially on the hit, “Rattle And Burn”. There is a nice violin solo on “Breeze From Saintes Maries” and vocals from Danny Wilde on “Fall At Your Feet”. It’s a live session with an audience that is fully engaged an appreciative as you will be.
