The Top of Coom
Flute player, Conal Ó Gráda’s seminal debut album released in 1990 is now rightly regarded as a classic in the world of traditional Irish music. Conal is joined by musicians Arty McGlynn (guitar), Colm Murphy (bodhrán), Seán Ó Loingsigh (bouzouki) and Bernadette McCarthy (piano) and between them with Conal at the helm they weave a magical spell over the listener. This 16-track album is a must have for all fans of traditional music and any self-respecting flute player!
Reviews for Top of Coom Album
“Conal takes the basic elements of traditional music and forges them into a personal style, which, once heard, is unforgettable. His fast, rhythmically precise flute-playing has an earthy raucous tone reminiscent of the saxophone and is driven by a spirit from the true heart of traditional music.” Journal of Music
“I remember the precise time and location when I first heard Conal Ó Gráda's first album, The Top of Coom. Some very good musical recordings express their genius in a subtlety which takes repeated listening and a deep knowledge of the musical context of the album to truly comprehend. Not so with The Top of Coom; it grabbed my ears the second I first heard it, and immediately changed my mind about the kind of sounds and rhythm that it was possible to produce on a wooden flute.” learningtowhistle.blogspot.com
