Album Review

Che Guevara Memorial Marching (and Stationary) Accordion Ban – “Che Guevara Memorial Accordion Band” – [Public Eyesore]

humana   8/10/2009   A Library, CD

A sextet of accordion players–Bob Marsh, Dan Cantrell, David Slusser, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, John Finkbeiner, and Ron Heglin–make up this unique ???marching??? band. Minimalist improv is the best way I have to describe the five tracks on this CD. Instead of a riot of noise, there seems to be careful conversation among the musicians. Track 2 is the closest to chaos that these songs get. Track 5 includes some percussive moves (executed on the accordions, I presume) that mimic the pitter-pat of feet.
