Additional Personnel / Information

(get it?) Mullen proves that these songs by Scotland?s national poet are standards as worthy of jazz treatment as anything written by the poets Tin Pan Alley. However, unlike ?Greensleeves?, another frequently arranged folk tune, most listeners will not recognize any of these tunes (a pity ?Auld Lang Syne? wasn?t included for a jazzbo New Year?s party). Although the concept ultimately proves more intriguing than the CD itself, Mullen?s laid-back melodies and lyrical sensibility combined with tasteful accompaniment result in an album worth hearing. Ulf Wakenius Quartet ?Live? Ulf Wakenius, guitar; Ake Johansson, piano; Yasuhito Mori, bass; Magnus Gran, drums.

Jim Mullen, guitar; Gareth Williams, piano; Mick Hutton, bass; Gary Husband, drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
