Adequate Mood Music
The Charity shop drought still continues but there was a small dribble last week when I came away with Poetic Champions Compose from 1987 and the 17th studio album from Sir Ivan the Grumpy Irishman .
It was originally intended as an album of jazz instrumentals but thankfully he saw sense and changed his mind. Having said that the instrumentals are alright for Jazz - sort of atmospheric celtic jazz as opposed to the usual noodely nonsense.
It was reasonably well received and was voted the 21st album of 1987 by the Village Voice. Not sure that I would go that far but it is perfectly pleasant though and ideal Sunday morning listening. Or as Wiki states adequate mood music which could maybe be seen as damning with faint praise.
