Album Review

Nugent, Cian – “Doubles” – [Vhf]

lombard   8/2/2011   A Library, CD

On this summer 2011 release of recordings from 2010, Dublin (Ireland) guitarist Cian Nugent tells a lovely story in 2 lengthy pieces. The first begins as a beautiful wash of guitar. There’s some Eastern flair (raga? a brief belly dancing interlude?) as we hear twinkling and plucking leading to increased tension ending with drone. The second piece also begins with guitar, but adds other elements, including cymbal crashes, bells, horns, reeds, and organ. It gets much jauntier than the first piece and has a different type of majesty to it. Yet it also returns to the same mesmerizing style as the first track as it evolves.
