Patsy Reid - The Brightest Path (Classy Trad Records)

Star rating: 
3

Musical excellence for sure as traditional Scots fiddle tunes are treated to some inspired arrangements with an occasional jazz flavour, courtesy of Fraser Fifield's soprano sax. Patsy Reid is a busy musician who spares enough time to make an album that feels like it was given all the time in the world. Not all tunes though, with one or two gorgeous songs, Ewan MacPherson's The River Princes for one as well as Patsy's take on Hem's sublime Half Acre and not forgetting the dreamy version of Patty Griffin's Kite Song.
