CD, стоящие на полке рядом : Pop (Accordion)      

Tango accordion has a clear icon in the late Astor Piazzolla, but these days Galliano is making a strong case for being the premier jazz accordionist. He's as lyrical as one needs, swings like mad, or brings tempos down to a sensual jog with passion and soul. When called upon, he can play a gut wrenching tango or two himself. For this effort he's joined by two different crack rhythm sections, the brilliant J.F. Jenny-Clark and Daniel Humair (seven tracks, ) or the slightly cut below Remi Vignolo and Andre Ceccarelli (four tracks, ) bass and drums respectively.

It's not hard to hear a distinctly French but improvisationally Americanized sound. The lone standard "You Must Believe In Spring" is one of many waltzes, but this one jumps from second to fifth gear, Galliano rapidly flying through the changes. The title track is also quick, with "Augusta" more a spritely 3/4, while "L'envers du Decor" is an easier, modal three beat. Nods to Brazilian Hermeto Pascoal are heard on his composition "Bebe" and the mallets on drums as heavy conga beat based fanfare and theme of "Passarinho." Galliano plays his accordion and whistles in unison on both tracks. Soprano saxophonist Michel Portal swings with Galliano, Humair and Clark on the 6/8 "J.F." while Clark duets with Galliano on "Sanguine," which is far from bloody, more like sweet sangria. "Heavy Tango" is as it is titled, hard driving, no-holds barred, and there's a slow samba "Sanfona," one of nine of Galliano's written works. Even when the swing is light as on "Caruso," Galliano's button pushing is active, pulsing and popping. There's much to like on this, Galliano's most engaging CD. Perhaps some will beg for more variation, like the Portal cut. But these rhythm sections, especially Europe's finest Clark & Humair, push Galliano's artistry to greater heights, and provide the listener with a unique experience, for jazz and even moreso in a world music context.
