This week”s album of the week is Reed Adventures from
Thomas Lukassek plays traditional and modern bagpipe music on a range of different pipes, including Great Highland Bagpipes, Scottish Smallpipes, Border Pipes or Uilleann Pipes.
On this solo album is a collection of songs in which he explores the sounds of his bagpipes along with a large range of other instruments ranging from the oriental oud to the didgeridoo. The result is some amazing songs full of original ideas and very clever arrangements.
But don”t just take our word for it. This is what Stuart Cassells has to say:
“It is refreshing to hear an album that uses the various sounds from different bagpipes together in the one song..‘Reed Adventures’ is indeed an adventure of sounds and Thomas Lukassek shows he is a clever musician with a good ear for blending complimentary instruments and many sounds… has produced a nice CD with lots of good ideas that deserve further exploring.”
