This morning BBC Radio Scotland broadcast an interview with double bass player and Pentangle founder member Danny Thompson about his friendship with John Martyn, who passed away last year. During the chat Danny discusses his current projects, including “Recording – how about this – with Kate Bush, a week ago. What a lovely lady she is. She’s so fantastic. Stunning.” Danny has previously played on The Dreaming and Hounds of Love albums. We obviously don’t know if this is work on Kate’s next album, but welcome news nonetheless. (with thanks to Al Lehgori on our forum). Hear the interview here (Kate mentioned at 8m 30s) Apart from working with Kate, Danny is a very busy man, including working with Anne Marie Almedal (who sung The Man With The Child In His Eyes with her band Velvet Belly). Read more about Danny at his Myspace page here.
