Hi, I'm looking for recommendations for good ITM albums that have nice tasteful bouzouki accompaniment.
I've already got some good examples in my library (De Dannan, Dervish, Bua, Donal Lunny) but I'm looking for more.

I've been playing bouzouki for about 3 years now, but I've decided to make it my main focus of practice for a while, and figured it would be good to listen to good examples as I do it.

Thanks in advance!

One of my favourite albums is "If Anyone Can" by Leo McCann. Exceptionally tasteful, lovely tunes and great playing. Leo on button box, Aaron Jones on Bouzouki and Chris Driver on double bass. You'll go a long way to find more tasteful bouzouki playing than from Aaron.

Niall Ó Callanáin plays lovely bouzouki on both Deiseal albums, 'The Long Long Note' and 'Sunshine Dance'.

I don't know if you can still pick either of those up on CD as they're a few years old now, but Amazon UK has both available as MP3 downloads.

A great band and two of my favourite albums.

One of the classic Bouzouki/Cittern albums from 1983 is Gerald Trimble's 'First Flight'. He essentially introduced the Stefan Sobel to the US masses. The playing still sounds fresh 20 years later.

http://thesession.org/recordings/468 His website link is long gone.
Here's an eBay link to the cover and liner notes (as long as the listing lasts)

My favorite bouzouki albums (although actually I think it's the Swedish "Latmandola" variant) are these two:

Fully Rigged -- Aly Bain & Ale Möller

Beyond the Stacks -- Aly Bain & Ale Möller

Just lovely Shetland fiddle with a great 'zouk (or 'lat) player backing.
