'The Meeting Pool' is an uplifting collection of
tunes based on the traditional music of the Baka
Forest of Cameroon, Around which former 'Outback'
guitarist Martin Cradick has woven an intricate
pattern of ideas to create an overall sound that is
relaxing yet invigorating.
The contribution of French violinist Paddy Le
Mercier is particularly impressive and he
demonstrates his versatility by adding an evocative
middle eastern flavour to the hauntingly enchanting
'Meeting of the Tribes' whilst the soaring melody
on 'Woosi' perfectly compliments Martin Cradick's
infectious guitar and the lifting vocals of Su Hart
and Kate Budd.
The eight tracks on this LP are sure to appeal
to anyone who appreciates music played with feeling
