Le Nozze di Carlo
Le Nozze di Carlo (artist released)
Their premise is that they make 'ethnic and psuedo-ethnic music.' Perhaps, but then, we all take ourselves too seriously, so why not? This quartet from New York plays accordion, bass, sax and guitar, they all sing, they have a good time playing old Italian folk songs, modern Italian pops, Irish and pseudo-Irish ballads, polkas, sea chanteys, jazz odysseys, mini-operas, and 'the occasional game of croquet.' Relax and enjoy; it's like spanding an evening at the Italian American Club with a group NY musical reprobates.
This CD comes simply packaged in a printed cardboard slip case as unassuming as the music inside.
