06 Standing Alone 4:10 min

‘Standing Alone’ could be considered to be one of the quirkiest covers ever made of the song Blue Moon originally written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934. This version includes an eerie vocal and a variety of bronze horns, trumpets and bodhrán. The piece rolls along with an inevitable optimism that is both energising and evocative. One particular inimitable sound is created by didgeridoo crossed with a kazoo whilst a rounded pumping all-encompassing rhythm is delivered on bodhrán. The addition of a polka played on a tin whistle sends this piece into a realm of its own!
