Her chief accompanist is Barry Phillips, who plays enough instruments to make an ensemble between the two. But the cast includes many others, including an appearance by William Coulter. Seriously, if the music making on this album does not satisfy you, there is nothing to be done for it. Phillips wavers back and forth between original instruments and some fairly daring arrangements. Which makes the albums more than just an idle pastime.
Frankly though, this is light music - no distressing airs permitted. Much dance music, and a few things that very well could be. A sunny spirited album that reminds us that our ancestors knew how to have a good time. This is the kind of thing that we used to get together in college and rattle out on the back steps and stairwell. Not so well played (well, some of us played well) but in the spirit of entertainment and edification.
The last thing I expected when starting this review is that I would have an attack of nostalgia, but there it is. Phillips has a knack of drawing out the nature of the music rather than producing academic performances, and avoiding over production as well. This is extremely accessible work - buy all means give it a listen.
