Review

Review Text Arriving 32 years into the recording career of English violin virtuoso Nigel Kennedy, My World is his first album of original compositions. It comprises two multi-part works, Dedications and Three Sisters, with the former paying tribute to idols such as Yehudi Menuhin, Isaac Stern, and Stéphane Grappelli. Three Sisters is a suite inspired by the Anton Chekhov play. Expressive and staunchly melodic, the pieces land in an area of folky Romanticism that aims to please more than challenge, at least where listeners are concerned. My World features performances from the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra, percussionist Orphy Robinson (Don Cherry, Wynton Marsalis), and guitarist Doug Boyle (Robert Plant, Caravan), among other contributors on guitar, bass, and drums. ~ Marcy Donelson
