Went on a bit, didn't it.
Disconnecting!
This is really good. If I was sitting in a pub and some guys started to play like this, I'd be happy to die once the set was done (or the pint, whichever) Fabulous playing and regardless of what some might think, quite skilled and creative.
Love anything that sounds irish
Wake me when it's over.

Your son must be a musical prodigy if he can play this well - but I guess that doesn't mean it's not "boring" to some people.

(Sean Connery voice): Thot's what she shaid.

Reminds me of that great one-off album "Skip, Hop and Wobble."

Your 6 year old is awesome !

Who's et Al?
Bluejazz for strings. They're picking up where Miles, 'Trane, et al. left off.

Turtle Island meets Celtic is OK by me.

I understand why the song is named "disconnect", makes me want to.

I was thinking that this has "Turtle Island String Quartet" written all over it, and sure enough Jeremy Kittel is in that group, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if some of the others joined him on this song as well.  Absolutely lovely.

Please don't listen to RP whilst you should be studying for your spelling exams

So nice to hear a local boy on RP!  We've watched Jeremy grow up here in Ann Arbor, MI
Nice strings. Kinda reminds me of the classic musical interlude in Loggins & Messina's "Be Free" (long version). Check it out.

Agreed, but I like reading your posts no matter where they appear.

Montreux had Barbara Higbie on piano, though. I'm thinking more Rite of Strings (Clarke, DiMeola, et al.).

Haven't thought of this band in a long while. ....
But this does very much remind me of their style of recording
Quite enjoyable {#Boohoo}

Reminds me of some of the Windom Hill stuff that I use to listen to in the eighties.  Very nice
After a few listens I decided I really like this{#Music}
I simply have to get on down to Amazon again soon... lovely, fresh, inspiring {#Dance}

Wonderful fiddle player and per usual excellent set - THANKS!

Jeremy Kittel is a local artist here in Ann Arbor.  We've been seeing him play since he was a kid.  So nice to hear him on RP!

Beautiful...  especially at this time of night (2 am est).
This song had me tapping both my feet and nodding my head in my office chair. I would also do air violin, but I have to keep my hands on the keyboard! :D
This is sounding better and better... I might have to look into buying this one.
I love instrumental folk music.  It has a nice tone.
Saw him in Ann Arbor a few years ago. Everybody in the room was awestruck.
Good stuff, along the lines of Rites of Strings (Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola, Jean-Luc Ponty).



Parts of this seemed promising, but alas, most of it sounds out of tune. yuck

{#Frustrated}
I like it so far on first listen
Woo-hoo! First comment (unless someone hits Submit before I do).

Disquieting intro, nice mélange of influences in the main part, including a good Celtic tinge. Interesting. Not easy listening, but interesting. 6 from the Nottingham jury.
Wow, this is great! If this song is indicative of the rest of the album I'm going to purchase it.
Just booring, please disconnect.
