The latest Hadouk CD.

Gorgeous melodic music by Gong's master musician and the Hadouk Trio. What do you expect I'm going to say? Hadouk make a bad CD? - Impossible. This is calm, cool and bright as a button at the same time. Cool majestic jazz roots peak through, yet at other times they produce organic sounds that knock most synth'd 'noises' into a cocked hat. Their music is ecoming more ethereal, melting into the essence of things. Mature, rich music made by mature musicians. And not a saxophone in sight. Is there a more subtle percussionist than Steve Shehan? Ah sod it, it's just brilliant. Didier's melodic life journey continues.
