HASH(0x99427294) étoiles sur 5 These are not your father's Uilleann pipes 13 mars 2002
Par Robert Thorbury - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
If you've seen or heard Riverdance, you're already familiar with Davy Spillane's hauntingly beautiful Uilleann pipe and low whistle melodies. If you're hoping to find more of that kind of music, "Atlantic Bridge" is probably not the CD you want.

I found this out only after I bought the CD. What I heard instead was a really interesting blend of various musical genres, among them bluegrass, jazz and, yes, traditional Irish piping and whistling. You'll notice this quickly. Track 1, "Davy's Reels", starts out with a conventional Irish sound. Then, about halfway through the track, the country-western guitar kicks in.

The title track, "Atlantic Bridge", literally bridges the old and the new worlds, starting with a lively, finger-snapping, guitar-picking tune, which eventually turns into a pipe and banjo duet. This is one of my favorite tunes on the CD.

If you're in the mood for a lively pipe jig, try "Tribute to Johnny Doran". For more pipes and banjos, try "Sliverish". For the blues, there's "Landsdowne Blues", which my mother says sounds like the kind of music she listened to forty or fifty years ago, when she was growing up.

"By the River of Gems" features some breathtakingly beautiful piping, Riverdance-style, and ends with another pipe and banjo duet. (A shorter and much more beautiful pipe-only version of this track appears on Davy's 1998 CD, "The Sea of Dreams".)

And then there's "In My Life", the Lennon/McCartney tune like you've never heard it before, featuring the low whistle and a hammer dulcimer, both played by Davy.

A final note: there's a twelve-second untitled bonus track at the end with a short snatch of guitar music. What it's for is anyone's guess. I keep wondering if perhaps something got left out during the recording session.

All in all, this CD's a good buy, if you're interested in unconventional Celtic music.

Come on - what can I say?? A master piece from the master of the pipes himself. This earlier recording of Davy's, puts you right up there on the moors wishing you had a pint of Guinness in you hand. Contains Daire's Dream, the best song Davy ever played. What can I say, BUY IT NOW, how ever have you walked God's green earth without it?

HASH(0x9942dcb4) étoiles sur 5 true fusion music 17 octobre 2012
Par Joseph Liechty - Publié sur
Format: CD
Fusion music is hard to pull off - it too easily sounds like a bit of this, a bit of that, here's the Irish part, now the Americana. To my mind, this is a beautifully integrated effort, true fusion in several modes of combination. I loved it when I first heard it in the 1980s, but my tape wore out and I never got around to getting a CD, so I am so pleased to have rediscovered the album, in CD form, a quarter-century later. It's all but impossible for me to pick a favorite tune, but I might go for Lansdowne Blues, which raises the question, how do the blues struggle along without an uillean pipes contribution?

HASH(0x9942f0a8) étoiles sur 5 World Bridge 17 juillet 2000
Par Perry Dror - Publié sur
Format: CD
The more I listen to Celtic music, and its musicians the less easy it is to label any music. This album does more than to bridge the Atlantic, it's more like a "home is where your ears are" kind of experience.
Davy and all of his guest artists seem to transend themselves, playing as one person. Davy's virtuoso handling of the uilleann pipes is as superb as always. At one moment it's a wind instrument, at another it's a violin.
I bought this and two other Davy Spillane albums on faith, based on his haunting solo in Riverdance. Now you show some faith. Stop reading the reviews and wrap your ears around this wonderful music.

HASH(0x9942f18c) étoiles sur 5 Awesome blend of sounds 30 juillet 2003
Par Bob - Publié sur
Format: CD
This is a magnificent blend of traditional Irish uillean pipes and mainly bluegrass but also some country and western style guitar.
Celtic fusion varies in how it works. At times it can be great and at times you just want one or the other. But on this album the combination is superb especially the banjo and the pipes.
Davy's Reels is an oustanding start to the album with it's movement from a traditional sounding pipe melody to a riveting country and western guitar passage. Atlantic Bridge is the best track for me with some nice work from dobro, pipes and banjo.
Davy's stunning solo Tribute To Johnny Doran and the banjo heavy Silverish are the other two best tracks in my opinion but everybody could have a favourite. The last track Landsdowne Blues is another outstanding fusion.
This album is an unforgettable listen. The only poor track is the abysmal adaptation of In My Life which sounds like one of those revolting panpipe moods albums. There's also a rather pointless ten second bonus track with a brief guitar passage from Davy. However, that aside this album can be played over and over.
