In Berlin on Tues evening I took part in a concert titled

Celtic Roots: Jazz at the Berlin Philharmonic  

put together by ACT records boss Siggifried Loch, and recorded for eventual release on his label, it featured

Aly Bain 

Eric Bibb 

Ale Moller 

Tuva Syvertsen

Olle Linder 

Knut Reiersrud

and me.  

We had plenty fun doing it. The 'Celtic' term sometimes seems not so far removed from that grassy African plain we all came from, so we were broad minded with our approach. If the CD works out I'll let you know, fingers crossed. Folk music for a Jazz label in a Classical venue with more than dash of the Blues, a beautiful confusion!
