This isn’t to say that Jansch was throwing commercial success to the wind, or was unaware of his audience, more that this album feels like a uniquely personal reflection of him. (The subject of British birds is one that Jansch held close to his heart

Like his wizardly six-string contemporary John Renbourn, Jansch was a mercurial figure who was often at odds with both himself and the world around him. However, Avocet presents an entirely different picture. It's knotty, beguiling, playful, and occasionally brazen, but ultimately light as a feather.

Bert Jansch – Avocet. Earth) UK release date: 5 February 2016. by Andy Jex first published: 31 Jan 2016 in Albums. Bert Jansch is one of folk music’s greats and his untimely death five years ago means the loss of an unassuming genius of the guitar. This stylish re-issue of fan favourite Avocet was recorded some 25 years ago in Denmark at the height of punk in England, with a band including Thompson (on double bass) the late Martin Jenkins (violin, flute) and Jansch (guitar and piano). Avocet is the sound of an elusive maverick following his vision for music not concerned with commercial success, free from fashion and fuss. Despite the ‘bird theme’ and titles of these tracks, this is no ‘Springwatch goes to the disco’ album or even a British Sea Power ‘twitchers in jumpers’ piece.
