Album Review

Here, the accordionist from the chamber-folk-jazz group Tin Hat Trio makes his solo debut on saxophonist/composer John Zorn's Tzadik record label. With this release, Rob Burger displays his multi-instrumentalist propensities, backed by the rock-solid rhythm section of drummer/percussionist Kenny Wollesen and bassist Greg Cohen. Throughout this outing, the artist uses unconventional instruments such as a claviola, an old Casio electronic keyboard, prepared piano, marxophone, and other incarnations of musicality. Simply put, Burger churns out an organic-sounding vibe on pieces spanning Jewish traditionalism minced with memorable melodies and feisty soloing endeavors. He displays wit and vigor amid a textural and multi-layered schema, augmented by the rhythm section's rumbling backbeats. In addition, Burger is a colorist, apt to employ a glockenspiel or celeste on certain pieces, while often conveying a fairy tale-like disposition to coincide with his quaintly constructed motifs. With his composition titled "Constantinople," the band implements a hard-edged klezmer groove, anchored by Cohen's firm ostinato and Wollesen's upfront attack. Needless to say, Burger has compiled a winner here. Zealously recommended.
