Re: Maestro

Is it just me, or is there something different about Casey’s fiddling here than on his other records (“Taking Flight”, “The Spirit of West Clare”, etc.)? I don’t know if it’s the recording more than the playing, but Casey seems to put a lot more power and enthusiasm into his playing here. Except maybe for that really long set on “The Spirit of West Clare”, which is a gem. But overall, I think his playing here is somewhat different. Has anyone else noticed this? Fabulous record, by the way!

Re: Maestro

I think I kind of get what you mean, Daniel - I don’t know if it’s just a recording thing but there’s a good ‘bite’ to the sound in a lot of these tracks.
