I first heard Barry Phillips performing Shaker music in Santa Cruz on New Year's Eve. I went up to ask him about cds and Celtic music for cello, and my sister said, "I have his cd, and it's wonderful!" So I had to rush back to her place to hear it. I'm a cellist, and a fan of Celtic music, and it's such a treat to have those two passions combined on this recording. Besides cello, there are many other traditional instruments featured, such as bagpipe, wooden flute, and Celtic harp played by Barry's wife. I highly recommend this cd for fans of traditional Celtic and folk music, and also those eager to hear the rich voice of solo cello.

On this CD Barry Phillips has assembled a collection of compelling melodies from a whole range of traditions. The tunes are predominately Celtic, but there are also some lovely Shaker melodies and music from Sweden and Spain. The arrangements are wonderful - original combinations of acoustic instruments including zither, tanpura, oboe, cittern, fiddle and of course cello. It's not for strict traditionalists, but any fan of acoustic music would find this worth a listen.

Another great recording from Gourd music, "Cello" features Celtic, medieval and traditional European tunes arranged for cello and a host of other acoustic instruments too numerous to mention. I just love this CD, especially when played on a stereo system with a good bass! I've said it before and I'll say it again: there's something about the deep, rich tones of a cello that centers my body and awakens my soul, and I'm always glad to hear cellists breaking out of their customary role as accompanists and really strutting their stuff. On this album, Barry Phillips wanders far and wide, exploring musical traditions through the centuries and across the Old World, and creating clever, engaging arrangements that vary in flavor from traditional and "modern" classical to New Age and world fusion. Often the cello takes the lead, but just as frequently, Phillips is happy to switch off with one or more of his guest artists, transitioning easily from melody to harmony to accompaniment and back again. This jaunty, sonorous music is sure to be enjoyed by everyone, but musicians will especially appreciate it for its seemingly effortless complexity of texture, rhythm and line. In addition to performing cello, Phillips also plays cittern (a Renaissance strummed instrument with metal strings), harmonium, pipe organ, dilruba (a bowed, broad-necked lute from India), tanpura (a Near Eastern lute), zither and percussion. Joining him on what seems to be, in part, a family outing, are Shelley Phillips on oboe, English horn, whistle and harp, Nathan Phillips on guitar, and Todd Phillips on bass.Read more ›

This brilliant CD is a collage of music from all over the world. When people pick up this album I think they may be expecting something with more of a Classical flare, but in fact Barry is known for his gifts as an interpreter of world music as well as an arranger/composer. Little Known Barry Facts: #1, He's a student of legendary sitarist Ravi Shankar, and played in Ravi's orchestra at the Concert for George. #2, Barry's first instrument was the drums, and he had a rock band at age ten. #3, His cello features a carving of a lion's head that looks uncannily similar to Teddy Rosevelt. #4, Barry has a degree in composition and has written chamber music inspired by 'Frog and Toad'. #5, He arranged a version of 'Purple Haze' for three cellos and performed it at a Celtic camp ceilidh. Anyway, the trivia could go on forever. I hope you enjoy this wonderful CD!!!

I heard my mom listening to samples of the disc on Barry Phillips's CD Baby page and I was immediately taken in by the beauty of the music. This CD is so relaxing and I listen to it to unwind after a long day at work, while I'm reading whatever book I'm currently reading, cleaning, or taking a nap. You won't be disappointed by this disc at all.

Barry provides a really excellent album. If you're looking for pure cello music with only mild accompaniment, you're probably looking in the wrong place, but this is pretty good. The songs reminisce of other things i've heard from other Celtic artists, but that may just mean that the composer is providing different renditions. It's a relaxing set of songs that will provide lots of enjoyment if you like Celtic music, particularly strings. But if you want more in-depth Cello music, look elsewhere.
