It is all too rare that one gets the opportunity to review a release which transcends merely the music on offer.  Dom Flemons presents Black Cowboys is one such offering, and what a visual and auditory delight it is.

 

Perhaps best known on these shores as co-founder of GRAMMY Award Winners the Carolina Chocolate Drops, whom he left to pursue his solo career in 2014, or more recently through his collaboration with Martin Simpson, the artist known as The American Songster, Dom Clemons, is, in truth,  one very multi-talented human being.  In addition to being acknowledged as an expert player of banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, percussion, rhythm bones and quills (panpipes), Flemons is also a music scholar, anthropologist, historian and record collector, attributes which he employs to full advantage on this release.
