Album Review

Na Domacem Vrtu (In the Family Garden) is an album related to a film by Bratko Bibic, a "historical fiction" that revisits the archives of the Slovenian Cinematheque (who curated the project). With his group the Madleys, the accordionist performed the music on this CD for a number of screenings around Eastern Europe between 1999 and 2001. Recorded in the studio for the most part, except for two live improvisations later reworked, this CD contains some of Bibic's most appealing music. A member of Nimal and the world-renowned Accordion Tribe, Bibic remains a little-known figure outside the circle of Eastern European creative folk enthusiasts. His solo albums have never reached the level of exposure his previously mentioned bands had (or artists like Iva Bittová or Pavel Fajt, for that matter). This album provides a great occasion to catch up with his work. It stands independently from the film as a well-balanced set of tunes, quirky and challenging in some places, yet always pushing an invitation to dance. Bibic (accordion), Matjaž Sekne (violin and viola), and Bogo Pecnikar (clarinet and baritone sax) form a stunning melodic section, trading melodies and developing arrangements that draw on Slovenian and Jewish folk while taking them just a bit further into the controlled chaos of avant-garde music. Meanwhile, bassist Nino De Gleria and drummer Aleš Rendla negotiate all the twists and turns of Bibic's complex rhythms with brio, especially in the compelling "The Pendelling One" and the self-explanatory "New Jerk, or How to Kill the Drummer." Above all reigns Bibic's accordion, light and lively like a huge butterfly unconscious of its weight. Highly recommended for its beauty and originality and well worth the effort to locate a copy. ~ François Couture, Rovi

Slovenian accordionist Bratko Bibič (born 1957) has had an irregular career, his name periodically popping in and out of public view. He was first known to Rock in Opposition enthusiasts for blending Slavic folk elements with avant-gardist rock in the groups Begnagrad and Nimal in the '70s and '80s. He later came to wider attention as one-fifth of the international avant-world fusion group Accordion Tribe. He released his first solo album in 1995. His idiosyncratic playing expresses exuberance and...
