HARLEY, RUFUS: Bagpipes of the World Deluxe 3-CD set
Recorded in Paris in 1995 by jazz bagpiper and multi-instrumentalist Harley with a French bagpipe group (whose pipes are in a completely different tuning) and the George Avunitas Trio (CD1). CD2 contains a one-hour interview made six weeks before Rufus' death, a complete concert from Jamaica in 2002, where Rufus and one of his sons performed with Jamaican musicians, and a five-song studio session another of his sons made for this release. Much is straight jazz, some is a strange reggae mixture, a few tracks are very eccentric.
