A Place Among The Stones CD (1996)
Single album for sale Instrumental prowess combined with complex but haunting melodies is a hallmark of musician Davy Spillane's fine solo outings. Quasi-new age virtuosos like Michael Hedges come to mind as Spillane's Celtic pipes soar with a modern, universal shimmer that never loses its traditional bounce on the artist's sixth solo effort, A Place Among the Stones. An accomplished composer and musician, Spillane won't surprise fans with his sometimes-bounding, sometimes-plaintive tunes, but the production and melodic accomplishments of this mid-'90s offering are significant. Sonically and technically, Spillane continues to show improvement in the studio both as a world-class piper and composer/arranger. Fans of Spillane, Moving Hearts, or Celtic music -- both contemporary and traditional -- will get a real thrill from A Place Among the Stones. ~ Vincent Jeffries
