Avocet is the twelfth album by Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch, released in 1979 in UK. The album was first released by Ex Libris in Denmark in late 1978 with alternate album cover and one alternate track title, although no difference in recorded content. The title track "Avocet" was inspired by the traditional song "The Cuckoo". All tracks on the album are named after a sea bird or wading bird.

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.

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. Avocet" is the very definition of 'overlooked gem that shouldn't be' - an album that cries out for rediscovery.

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. Indeed, just preceding this album was his 1978 split 7 single with Shirley Collins - with proceeds in aid of the RSPB

Though 'Avocet' is certainly the album's centrepiece, there's certainly more on the album to explore. Lapwing' illustrate both Jansch's affinity for baroque music as well as his skills as an able pianist, whilst the fairly pedestrian folk-jazz of 'Bittern' is made interesting by Danny Thompson's monstrous bass solo, which takes in full-on atonality as well as elements of Indian raga  . Perhaps not a place to begin for the uninitiated, but those looking to explore Bert Jansch's catalogue further could do worse than picking up Avocet.
