Jean-Christophe Renault and Didier Laloy
Hors-piste (Home Records, Belgium)
Composed and improvised duets by this Belgian duo of piano and diatonic accordion.
|fRoots says: 'It would be interesting to have enumerated the many and various musical projects - albums, bands, concerts, recordings - that the hyperactive workaholic Monsieur Laloy has been involved in, in the past five years or so. It would make a long and impressive list. Here his diatonic accordeon is paired with Jean-Christophe's piano and compositions. The best description of this music would be modern conservatoire music with decided folk and worldmusic leanings. There is probably nothing to compare it with in Britain but it is a similar mould to the compositions of Carl Hession and Micheal O Suilleabhain in Ireland.This is thoughtful, enjoyable music.'|
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
