Zemer Attic/Tanz Tanz ...
Tango jazz complete with accordion and violin. An obvious nod to Astor Piazzola, aiming for that Paris sidewalk-cafe feel. Bright stuff with an ear for authenticity: The music is playful but not as wacky as the track names imply. There's the occasional touch of Balkan dance in weird time signatures, but otherwise no surprises. Fun stuff, though.|
It's a small band -- most tracks are violin, accordion, bass, drums -- that conjures up a big, dramatic sound.
2- Sidewalk cafe magic. Mid/fast.
3- Klezmer dance. Mid/fast, happy
4- Cool popping theme, fairly fast
5- Fast complex stomp. Wacky marimba.
6- Country/western waltz, slow.
7- Slow drama
8- Complex darting phrases. Cool! Intro is mid/slow sadness.
9- Cartoony little piece. Sneaky intro.
10- A tropical-Calypso feel, very percussive intro
11- Slow, soundtrack-y
