Default Vote for a FAIR album before April 14th

Every two weeks the Folk And International Roots Album Club votes for an album that they will listen to and discuss in the coming weeks.
Anyone can vote in this poll, but if you vote, please follow through and be ready to discuss whichever album wins the poll.

Five albums to choose from this week, including the first nomination from misspoptart, , although another first is that this poll doesn´t have a nomination from stp, :-

Beautiful album consisting of saxophone (bass, I believe) and vocals from two musicians who truly know their instrument. It goes through an amazing field of textures in so little time and the two really complement one another.

Pianoriental by Maurice El Medioni (2000)



This accomplished piano player learned his trade in the bars of Algeria during the Second World War, but it seems that he didn´t record anything until this century. So although this album has a modern date, it preserves a spirit from about 75 years ago. With a slightly dated sound and a sophisticated blend of styles, it´s easy to conjure up visions from the movie Casablanca as you listen to this virtuoso playing.

On this link, you can hear the whole album. (If that´s too much to take in all at once, take a break and go back another day; this album is a slow grower imo.)

Glorious Romani-esque brass album... It's extremely fun and bursting at the seams with creativity and life.

Some beautiful folk from an improvisational guitarist and a female folk singer. This is a two disc album that contains the first two albums of this duo. The songs are hauntingly emotional, mostly because of Bloom's vocals. Connors plays some good and somewhat noodly backgrounds to these songs that complement Bloom's style very well. I don't know if Connors is improvising or not, but it's a stunning product either way.

I think this is one of the best songs on the album. Enjoy.


Thanks as always to the people who make the effort to share their enthusiasm for FAIR music here.

Now let`s get voting ....
