The Next Gig (NL) Album review – CAME SEPTEMBER

Standard
Thank you to The Next Gig in The Netherlands for this album review of
CAME SEPTEMBER –

‘The British Country formation – The Twisty Turns, consists largely of members of Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings. The magisterial singer and bassist Jenny Trilsbach is part of both, as is guitarist Benjamin Gallon. In this journey to Country and Country Folk music the duo collaborates with violinist Jerry Bloom.cropped-front-cover.jpg
Came September has become a very fine album with Trilsbach singing in a more modest way than in her acoustic Rhythm and Blues work and there is a great deal of space for the violin playing of Bloom. It produces a strong album that starts beautifully with ‘So Bad’ and especially the impressive ‘By The River’. Less intense is the slow duet ‘All the Notes’ then the title track ‘Came September’ comes with pizazz where Trilsbach sings in great shape, ducking smoothly with Bloom’s Violin. Very Nice.
Nice intermezzo is the adaptation of the traditional instrumental ‘The Monkey’. Again a nice leading role for the violin. Then the second duet between Gallon and Trilsbach ‘Fade Away’ comes into its own. Gallon, who also wrote the song, vocally takes the lead.
Came September is full of melancholy and beautiful songs. The rhythm section with Trilsbach and Gallon offers Bloom the opportunity to showcase his violin. The voice of Trilsbach is a sensation on stage and is especially intense on this album. A song like ‘Sick Bad Wrong’ is phenomenally beautiful and one of the highlights of the album.
With this especially warm album, the debut on record for the trio, the band knows absolutely how to convince. Beautiful songs like the smooth ‘Only Blue’ and ‘Cannonball’ and finishing with ‘Leaves’ results in a very satisfying debut.’
