Basco - The Remarkable Return of Old Man Basco (Denmark 2013) @320

Big Basco continue the melting pot of wood and brass, with tasty and powerful music well suited to any audience. Now they have invited more great musicians in the melting pot, the Danish/Norwegian singer Julie Hjetland and the Canadian/Quebecian feet & fiddle player David Boulanger. Basco's material is nearly all original, stealing shamelessly and frivolously from Scandinavian, English, Irish, Scottish and North American idioms to create a kind of organic, musical, soupy stew - full of vitamins and anti-oxidants. For Basco, the tune is the thing, and all else must spring from it. "It's gotta swing!
