This isn't pre-packaged, restaurant entertainment Gypsy music; it's very folky, heart-felt and juicy stuff. This has famous ex-Loyko guitarist Vadim Kulitskii, but the violinst is what has me estatic over this CD. The trio consists of Kulitskii, Russian accordianist Oleg Nehls (playing the Bayan or button accordian) and Oleksander Klimas on that violin. The guitar is reminiscent of Django Reinhardt in the fingering and picking, but this trio is 100 percent Russki. Very wonderful, especially the third cut on the CD "Gypsy Soul." Wish my grandmother were still alive to enjoy this--she hailed from Kiev and adored this music.
