NetRhythms: A to Z Album Reviews
Back Of The Moon - Luminosity (Footstompin')The third studio album from this award-winning Scottish traditional group comes a mere two years down the line from their well-received second, Fortune's Road, and as you might by now expect brings another sparkling, well-chosen and admirably even-handed collection of songs and tunes (six of each). But there's much more to the CD than that, for good though Fortune's Road was, Luminosity brings a significant advance in maturity and insight that's almost comparable to that between Crucible's first and second CDs. Unlike some of the young trad-based ensembles on the current scene, Back Of The Moon have a major selling-point in that they have within their ranks no less than three very good singers who are all more than capable of taking the lead - fiddler Gillian Frame, pianist Hamish Napier and guitarist Findlay Napier (the latter's a pretty good songwriter too, if his Ship In A Bottle, a CD highlight, is anything to go by). And there's something rather special about the spark and rapport between the musicians and their attitude to and respect of each other's abilities, whereby the lineup's instrumental complement never resorts to auto-pilot or a formulaic "arrangement by numbers" but brings an imaginative and thoroughly delicious spontaneity to each track. The band's fourth member, whistle & pipes (and bodhr醤) man Ali Hutton (only not mentioned earlier because he doesn't sing - and hey, no offence intended!), brings a full-bodied tone to the group sound and arrangements with his forthright playing that in its intelligence ideally matches the contributions of the others. Each of the four bring some self-penned tunes to the mix to counterpoint examples both traditional and by the likes of Gordon Duncan and Phil Cunningham. The songs range widely for their sources too, with a dramatic rendition of the "happy ending" ballad Glenlogie sitting well alongside the Scott-collected murder ballad Nine Stone Rig (which Gillian credits to Linda and Teddy Thompson - hmm!) and Archie Fisher's pensive, bleak Final Trawl nicely contrasting with the upbeat tale of The Brewer's Lad. All the songs are blessed with effective arrangements that utilise both accompanying instruments and backing voices to best advantage. A handful of tracks (including Glenlogie and Hamish's fine slow air Joey Beauty's) see the band augmented by some more unusual sounds - the trombone of Rick Taylor and/or the cello of Christine Hanson - and the extra depth these elements bring to an already rich tapestry is quite remarkable. All told, though, and whether for songs or tune-sets, Back Of The Moon always demonstrate an innate and enviable understanding of texture and dynamics, and this canny and highly spirited collection is definitely their best yet.
