.......GT, that "Knuckles to the Marrow" by Iarla O'Lionaird is awesome. Very unusual combination of the traditional and the modern and, more strikingly, the rural and the urban. There is something very organic about the piece at its most mechanical. That is rare.
I don't know much about Ra-Ra but his vocal along with with everything else taking place there....well, it makes Cathal Coughlan seem quite tame by comparison. And what a world away from the Afro Celt Sound System!
This is an interesting article about the album, ‘I Could Read the Sky’- http://www.celticcafe.com/archive/Mu...celt/iarla.htm.
I also see from notes elsewhere that his grand aunt was recorded in the distant ether by Alan Lomax. I am assuming that this was her: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StRjC...ature=related. - Lat.

>>>**a world away from the Afro Celt Sound System!
GT, you got me banged to rights there, ** I am !
Jazz is cutting edge music like this
Calum will confirm.
But you're right, the Western Jazz Band, we'd better listen to it !
There, that didn't take long ( 3 minutes )
Not a duff track on the whole cd. I think I'll make it my 'Soundtrack Of Summer '11 '
It's rather wonderful !
Of course Hot Max did play a selection last week.
.....is this the Atropolis? Not sure about the track but apparently he is eclectic! -
........GT, here is your Imperial Tiger Orchestra -

ok, I've found this album, Polska Rootz, on Spotify.
By a variety of different musicians, it is very modern, but a combination of that modern stuff, played by musicians who are also clearly steeped in Polish folk music. It includes, for example, the Warsaw Village Band, already known quite well to r3 WM listeners.
I have to admit to being won over by that Twinkle Brothers/Trebunie-Tutki track - the most unlikely thing I've heard all year. It works well.
Here it is on YouTube
and, not on the album:
now - does this have a cheering effect?
Ahh, that old Polksa Roots album - so 09:15.
Now, why now, the young prodigy Pokey LaFarge
JC - I predict you will become a fan...why he even looks like a young Ahh Crum.
