(2019) Neal Heppleston - Folk Songs for Double Bass


Review:
Though double bassist Neal Heppleston‘s joined by a generous number of friends on his half-hour debut album (eighteen appear in different combinations on seven of the eight pieces), Folk Songs for Double Bass never loses its up-close-and-personal character; it certainly helps that the release cover sports a woodblock image Heppleston himself created, carved, and hand-printed (using West Yorkshire Print Workshop’s Imperial Platen Press). The eight instrumentals are transpositions of popular folk songs in arrangements by the double bassist, but his fingerprints are all over the release, figuratively and otherwise. In the opening “Willie of Winsbury,” his earthy double bass provides an unshakeable ground for the bowed strings of Roo O’Hare (viola and Ben Eckersley (cello) and the atmospheric shadings of electric guitarist David Broadhurst and harmonium player Jim Ghedi. Aptly titled, “Bows of London” augments the leader with Paul O’Connor and Martin Usher on violins, Jason Curteis on viola, and Lucy Revis on cello; a seven-minute folk-and-neo-classical hybrid, the tune opts for stately melancholy in its shanty-styled melodies and luscious string quartet textures. The makeshift quintet reappears on “Spencer the Rover,” the effect of this second performance not dissimilar in its melding of folk themes and classical strings and the tune itself striking for a rather Nick Drake-like melodic quality.
