One comment

The Celtic Jazz Collective are Paddy Keenan, Niall Vallely, Lewis Nash, David O’Rourke, Martin Reilly, Fiona Doherty, Fintan O’Neill, Peter Washington, Steve Kroon. Not so much "fusion" as overlayering; to this ear the two styles just didn’t blend, the jazz percussion and accompaniment just floated on top of the trad tunes, like oil on water. Released on Mapleshade Records (Mapleshade 08032).
