Best of 2017 #47: Sandcatchers – “What We Found Along the Way” (Chant Records)


This captivating session from the Sandcatchers brings together the musics of the Middle-East, the Appalachian Mountains and metropolitan NYC.  The melodies of What We Found Along the Way bends and warps and melts into different forms and shapes, one no less compelling than the next.  Oud, cello, lap steel, bass and drums kick up some folk music twang, some melodic dancing with maqam improvisation, some hop and bop of modern jazz, and all of it fun and friendly and seriously mesmerizing.

Music from Brooklyn, NY.
