Sian Evans - Concrete, Paper, Plastic     World, Jazz, Folk 27/08/2010
Sian Evans: Not genre specific, but to be less precise, somewhere between Folk oriented jazz - Roots with a quirky nu-gypsy twist…..possibly?
More a world flavour with the small orchestra accompanying, something of a Montagues and Capulets feel, or the opening scene from Edward Scissor hands, "the definition of..." in predominantly 6/4 time and a nice Latin bridge to twist, explores the depth of lifes philosophy and the definition of a name.
