"Bridget Wishart seems to be hitting a peak of productivity. Added to her occasional work with Spirits Burning, and the Djinn collaboration with Alan Davey, there have now been several Omenopus releases and the two Allies and Clansmen compilations featuring several of her other side projects. Although best known to Hawkfans as a vocalist, much of her recently released work is instrumental. On the mainly instrumental "Far Corners" she plays EWI (electronic wind instrument) facsimiles of clarinet, violin, oboe and synths. Don Falcone of Spirits Burning is the main collaborator but several other familiar names appear, including Daevid Allen, Steve Palmer of Mooch and Richard Wileman of Karda Estra. "Far Corners" is less austere than Karda Estra, more disciplined than Spirits Burning and less spacey than Mooch. “Far Corners” is probably as close to mainstream as her Bridget’s work gets, smoothly combining easy listening, modern classical, jazz and ambient music. Well worth a listen
