iTunes Review

Irish folk musicians mix nearly as frequently as jazz musicians. So it should come as no surprise that New York’s versatile pianist Thomas Bartlett (a.k.a. Doveman), acoustic rhythm guitarist Dennis Cahill, traditional fiddle master Martin Hayes, hardanger violinist Caoimhin Ó Raghallaigh, and Afro Celt Sound System singer Iarla Ó Lionaird have come together. Like ACSS, The Gloaming are very much about creating a transcendent new fusion, although this time it's Celtic music blended with modern classical music. The results are nicely mannered, in the same vein as Clannad or Loreena McKennitt but without the mystical overtones. Those looking for the fiery musicianship of Hayes' and Cahill's duo work should turn to the stripped-down “The Sailor’s Bonnet” or the epic “Opening Set,” with Bartlett in particular adding nice colors to the tapestry. Those seeking vocal tunes can check out tracks like “Song 44” and the romantic “The Necklace of Wrens.” Woven through all of this is a stunning sense of musicality and musicianship.
