Album Notes
The Irish-man Rodney Cordner and Jean-Pierre Rudolph, a jazz-musican, have been travelling through Europe for 19 years now including gigs at Mean Fiddler, London or this year again Montreux Jazz Festival just to give an example. Their different backgrounds lead to an interesting mixture between irish wit, celtic rhythm and french romanticism.

„One of the few“ is an Irish term for something quite unique or rare and once again Rodney Cordner & Jean-Pierre Rudolph“ (two of the few) have come up with a collection of music and song worthy of the title.

As before the songs deal with the many facts of real life ie: Love, the pain of war, poverty, loneliness, faith, celebration and joyful humor from both, a practical and spiritual perspective.

The songs are, as always adorned in a rich tapestry of sound from the many acoustic instruments of Jean-Pierre Rudolph and again he excels as both, musician and composer on several fine instrumentals.

Songs that stand out include „The Orchard“, „Entrenched“ and „Celtic Tiger“ from the pen of Cordner plus a fine version of the classic traditional song „Black is the colour“.

As on their previous album, international recording engineer Ron Kurz, who has worked with such world famous artists as Clannad, Peter Gabriel and Christy Moore to name but a few, is responsible for the recording and mixing as Co-Producer.

Rodney Cordner, Jean-Pierre Rudolph - Milestones
Published Wednesday 1st August 2007

STYLE: Roots/Acoustic

Reviewed by David Faulkner
Richard Thompson once sang of the journey 'From Galway To Graceland'. Cordner and Rudolph have been making the trip from Portadown to Strasbourg for a few decades now. This 2001 compilation is an excellent introduction to their art. There are judicious covers (including Gordon Lightfoot, Ralph McTell and Johnny Cash), traditional songs, instrumentals, social commentary and riotous originals such as "Fiddle Sticks", about a Chinese meal. All these get the Cordner voice and guitar, ruggedly dovetailing with Rudolph's dazzling violin work. It's one of those can't-go-wrong releases. A sheer joy thoroughly recommended for those with a taste for the Irish folk tradition.
