Maria Kalaniemi - Ahma [1999 Finland] @320


by request

Enthusiasts of the five-row accordion will find much to celebrate in this splendidly performed and produced release. This is Kalaniemi's third outing in a recording studio, and she and her band (all master players) use it to grand advantage, ranging from moments of poignancy to bursts of frank melodrama. As might be expected from that blanket description, this is not a simple album of squeezebox squishing by any means -- there is nothing hokey to be found here; instead, expect some magnificent playing from all parties involved.
