Sarah Gillespie: Glory Days

The interplay between acoustic guitar and clarinet sparkles and words tumble out unstoppable
 

Folk-jazz? Folk-blues? Sarah Gillespie’s genre is as hard to pin down as her songs, where it is never quite clear whether we are eavesdropping on a quarrel between people or – as references fly to “Crusaders” and she might be singing equally about a “kiss” or a “curse” – between peoples. The interplay between her acoustic guitar and Gilad Atzmon’s clarinet sparkles, and the words tumble out unstoppable and direct.
