Prog Reviewer
3 stars Lou Maxwelll Taylor is a little known folk musician outside USA. He release so far a single album in 1999 named Cheshire tree suite. The album is on prog folk territory where the deep voice of Maxwell in combination with acustical and all passages make a good listning. The music is intresting in many parts, specially the opening track and New Music For Morris Dancing, the best from here. Maxwell is helped by many musicians here, aswell some unusual instruments involved here like bodhran or dombek, but in combination with keyboards and all the rest is ok. This is the kind of folk best to listen in quite winter evenings, is perfect for prog folk listners, not very complicated but has that specific beauty in all pieces. Aswell the album is well balanced and quite varied in arrangements. In some places remind me of cours of Ian Anderson in his most folkish moments. So, a good album but I don't think is groundbreaking at all, anyway very nice cover art that goes hand in hand with the music.
