Evolution: The Best of Eko

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran

This collection, culled from EKO's four popular recordings, features 13 classics and three brand new tunes. Typical of O'Connor's essential style is the hypnotic, acoustic guitar-driven "Raindance," which features a bluesy organ undercurrent and balmy flamenco feel. "Loose Change" is a folksy acoustic piece which lopes along like a day in an old Western town, ever so slightly tinged with blues. "Celtica" is a festive, accordion-driven funk ...

This collection, culled from EKO's four popular recordings, features 13 classics and three brand new tunes.

"Loose Change" is a folksy acoustic piece which lopes along like a day in an old Western town, ever so slightly tinged with blues. "Celtica" is a festive, accordion-driven funk jig, while "Dublin to Delhi" explores a dual continental blend which takes listeners from Ireland to Calcutta, showing them all the mystical joys in each place. The new tracks include the reggae-flavored "Freetown," which features a plucky steel guitar lead line over a simmering organ, and "Milo," an acoustic-based ballad also steeped in some gentle blues. Higher Octave's roster has long featured acts which blend the sensibilities of various genres and cultures in one setting; this recording shows why EKO is one of the best of these.
