Bob Brozman Orchestra - Lumière
(4 Stars)


By ROBIN DENSELOW


Bob Brozman is one of the great musical travellers. The American guitarist has spent years bounding across the world like an excited puppy, constantly delighted by new noises and rhythms, most of which happen to be made by stringed instruments that he then goes on to play himself. He has collaborated with musicians in Japan, India, Africa and Réunion, and has always put his name second on the credits. Now he takes centre stage, with an orchestra that consists mostly of Brozman himself. Some tracks feature him playing up to 10 different instruments, from the Hawaiian guitar to the Bolivian charango and tiny Greek baglama. He delights in bringing unexpected rhythms and instruments together - whoever would expect to hear a Hindustani slide guitar on a ska waltz, or a Finnish harp playing a tango? Amazingly, his exuberant, multi-tracked instrumentals actually work.
