Some very nice stuff there. Front page is a bit of a busy mess, but the "Music online" link up top leads to the good stuff. For the impatient: Flash player, mp3 files.

What's the difference between an accordion player and a terrorist?






Terrorists have sympathizers.


30 years of get together with the Italian side of family can do that to you.

Nice, thanks. While on topic, do check out Johanna Juhola.

The Trio might have been influenced by Kimmo Pohjonen too.

Motion Trio is quite "classical" in its style. It reminds me of Trio Fratres who have played for example Kraftwerk with accordions.

Also a great band from Poland with accordion is Kroke, which plays klezmer with a very intimate "chamber music" style.

A couple of those tracks bear a wonderful stylistic resemblence to portions of the X-Com soundtrack. I can think of no higher praise.

And also on topic, way on topic, Guy Klucevsek is one of the greatest accordian players alive, and a helluva nice and unassuming fellow, as well.

They could play Philip Glass well enough.

Great. Wish they were coming to Toronto.
