Savourna Stevenson : Tickled Pink
Savourna Stevenson - Tickled Pink on springthyme/ soundcloud
Since recording this her first album as an LP in 1985 Savourna has recorded more than half a dozen albums – several with rock and jazz musicians – and, while identifying strongly with her Scottish roots, she continues to break through stylistic barriers between traditional, world music, blues, jazz and classical. The CD includes a Bonus track - a new, extended version of Savourna and Aly Bain's impressive Trip We Took Over the Mountains. Two of the pieces on this album – Tickled Pink and Jalan are in a contemporary idiom and demonstrate the potential of the instrument beyond traditional music.
