5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic folk Russian Gypsy sound, Jan. 24 2004

This review is from: Russian Gypsy Fire (Audio CD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Russian Gypsy has the Fire, Jan. 17 2004
By 
Jane Ellen Knotek (Bethlehem, PA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Russian Gypsy Fire (Audio CD)
I received this CD as a gift. I was skeptical as I am fussy about the arrangements and performing of all, especially Balkan and Gypsy, music. I thought that it would be another "Gypsy Music Light" produced for the masses and profit- far from it. The music is authentic; excellent presentation with back to basics playing. Clean, precise instrumentation- no slides, squeaks, etc- superb musicianship. And the Rom Fire is definitely roaring under Kulitskii with his emotional vocals.
He has full empathetic musical comradeship in Oleg Nehls and Oleksandr Klimas. Klimas' range of sounds (including a "Canary" as captivating as that of the late Sandor Deki Lakatosh) alone is more than worth the price. Had it not
been a gift, I would have gladly bought this Cd.
At full price......
A must-have for the serious afficiando and beginning listener. alike.
