The Black Swan is the 23rd and last studio album by Scottish folk singer Bert Jansch. It was released in 2006 through Drag City. Jansch described the album: It's been fantastic working with everyone who's been involved on the record. They all came to it from a standpoint of being fans of my music, so while there are lots of great musicians making wonderful contributions to the record it still has a very acoustic, intimate feel and there's still a lot of me on there. The Album: The Black Swan This album was his last ever studio album released in 2006, five years before he finally passed in 2011. It's a genuine work of art and left behind the last trace of what the world had missed out on during his lifetime. Now this really is a switch: Scottish guitar hero and songwriter Bert Jansch Pentangle recording for Drag City, with a host of admirers in tow - Beth Orton, Devendra Banhart, Noah Georgeson who performed and co-produced with Jansch, Helena Espvall, son Adam Jansch, and more. Black Swan is a collection of original and traditional tunes. Jansch turns in a performance that shows his typical restraint, and within it his wonder as a guitarist.
