Cherry Pink and Olive Blossom Green

Let's Polka reviews Zevy Zions solo accordion release, "Olive Blossoms."
From the start, Zions’ playing is impeccable, even on the most challenging material. But he’s no robot either; whether it’s the bouncy “Jolly Caballero” or the dreamy “Florette”, Zions handles the dynamics and nuances of each piece with care. The album’s centerpiece is his “Klezmer Suite” arrangement, which builds from a wandering, improvisational Doina to a rollicking Freilach.
You can download a free track at the Let's Polka site. It's a warm sounding recording.

Hat tip, the KlezmerShack.
