Album Review

Blackshaw, James – “Glass Bead Game, The” – [Young God Records]

humana   6/1/2009   A Library, CD

Put a 12-string guitar or piano in the hands of James Blackshaw and sit back and let him take you to realms of gorgeous melodic beauty. Lavinia Blackwall lends her vocals on 1 (no lyrics, only voice), John Contreras is on cello, and Joolie Wood adds violin, clarinet, and flute to the lovely textures created by Blackshaw. Blackshaw wrote this classically-flavored music, and it is indeed healing, as Michael Gyra states on the back CD cover. All instrumental.
Picks: 4, 5.
PGM: 1 ends at :25, 2 at :18, 3 at :22, 4 at :20, and 5 at :18.
