James Kelly’s Dark Corner

Got this off of James Kelly’s Traditional Irish Music cd. The 2nd track on the cd is a trio of tunes composed by James himself. This is a fun tune, nice and dark. James’ comments from the liner nodes:

The odd twists and turns of this D minor tune suggests the explorations and discovery of the mystery of dark musical corners.

The cd is a wonderful cd, I recommend it strongly.

I like the was this tune hesitates between the two relative tonalities Dm and Fmaj, esp. in the 2nd part.
