ALBUM REVIEW: Luka Bloom ~ Head & Heart

ptw rating7m1mxisxalbta_sqr256The Irish folk singer returns with a new album of songs that are noteworthy for both their skeletal, laid-bare arrangements and the instrumentation provided by The Phil Ware Trio – Phil on piano, Dave Redmond on double bass, Kevin Brady on drums. Comprised of a number of covers and a couple of Bloom originals this is an album that keeps it’s focus on the simple beauty of great song, graceful melody and an unhurried demeanour. Dylan (‘Every Grain of Sand), John Martyn (‘Head & Heart’) and brother Christy Moore (‘The Joy of Living’) are some of the songwriters Bloom pays tribute to on this lovely, heartfelt collection.
