"Nocturne" by Colyn Fischer & Shauna Pickett-Gordon (World Artist from San Francisco, California(CA))

"Nocturne" is the latest album from the duo Colyn Fischer & Shauna Pickett-Gordon. This is a wonderfully unique album, in which we hear solely the piano and violin combine into a superb collection of music that is part Celtic, part classical, and part Jazz. In "First Rain of the New Year" we hear both instruments delight the listener in their own way, the violin heartfelt while the piano softly accompanies with a sweet and somber tone. "The Stream is High" is an energetic number in which the violin calls out thrillingly as the piano frolics delightfully alongside. "The Astronomer" is a number that really shows how these musicians can fuse traditional Celtic music with a more contemporary jazz sound. All in all, this entire album is a true celebration of the fantastic potential inherent within the simple pairing of a violin and piano in the right musicians' hands. Fans of Celtic music, as well as those of avant-garde Jazz music, would do themselves a favor by listening to Colyn Fischer & Shauna Pickett-Gordon's album, "Nocturne."
