Product Notes

Music is full of energy by Maladominus Having never heard of Accordeon Melancolique in the past, I accidentally stumbled upon their music only through the iTunes store. I'm not really sure how to describe their music, but this is one album that makes accordion music sound 'cool' and hip. This is definitely a type of music that is 'indie', and would not fit neatly in most music categories. If anyone should be skeptical about this energetic album, the track 'Higland Reel' (a traditional Scott tune) will convince him/her of just how much fun this album is. A slight caution: the album is a live recording, so there will be some clapping at the end of each track. The live CD by Accordéon MéLancolique! Petits Fours Frais Jean-Pierre Guiran and Cherie de Boer play the accordion. This album contains concert registrations with guest musicians in the period 2001-2003: Nick McGuire (bass), John Ligthart (guitar), Koen de Cauter (sax & guitar), Jopie Jonkers (vocals), Antoon Aukes (percussion & tap-dance), Thea van der Meer (sax) and of course Cherie de Boer (accordion, vocals & percussion) and Jean-Pierre Guiran (accordion & vocals). A frivolous CD with lots of variety in personnel and ambience. A refreshing musical treat Dirty Linen, USA What is it about the accordion? It's engendered at least as many jokes as banjo, yet when you hear it and it's brethren played well, it is a free-reeded thing of beauty. As evidence, these two recordings feature the instrument, but in very different musical contexts. The Dutch-based accordion duo Accordéon MéLancolique is anything but. Their Petit Fours Frais is a sweet live CD that explores a wide variety of musical styles. Cherie de Boer and Jean-Pierre Guiran (Orkest Polytour - the wonderful ensemble that features Gypsy jazz with musettes and wonderful French composers ) are the group, completed here by bass, guitars, and saxophones. In addition to traditional tunes, there are quite a few Guiran originals. Highlights include "Une Valse Anglaise SVP," an original, and a hard-swinging 'Passé Composé.' 'Terezinha' is beautiful, as is the classic 'La Mer,' a favorite tune. This project is a refreshing musical treat. Sans racolage ni vulgarité jouée avec fraîcheur Etudes Tsiganes, France Formé de deux accordéonistes chanteurs hollandais, Chérie De Boer et Jean-Pierre Guiran (également fondateur de l'excellent mais défunt groupe swing musette Polytour), le duo Accordéon MéLancolique existe depuis une vingtaine d'années. Après deux CDs minimalistes en studio en 98 et 2002, les revoilà en concert pendant la période 2001/2003 avec des musiciens invités selon les titres : Nick McGuire, contrebasse sur 10 titres, John Ligthart, guitare sur 6, Koen De Cauter, sax, guitare sur un titre, Jopie Jonkers, chant, Thea van der Meer, sax...Le groupe joue avant tout la musique qu'il aime, un répertoire populaire éclectique qui va de Volver de Gardel à La Mer de Trenet en passant par Manha de Carnaval, un trad écossais, Aurore de Fapy Lafertin, Amorcito ou des compositions originales de JP Guiran à l'inspiration variée (passé composé, une valse anglaise SVP, La parade des poules, L'imparfait du cœur...) une musique plutôt festive sans racolage ni vulgarité jouée avec fraîcheur, humour et décontraction, qui se danse aussi bien qu'elle s'écoute. JP Guiran et Chérie de Boer se font et nous font plaisir sans prétention en privilégiant avant tout le sentiment et le climat poétique. La prise de son est un peu lointaine mais le voyage musical est bien agréable. Senhor Jean-Pierre Guiran, sua musica é fantastica, pois o senhor toca divinamente o acordeon, e todas as musicas de seu CD são excelentes, fantasticas, uma grande viagem. Antonio Augusto Cesar Junior Belém, Brazil.
