Notes and Editorial Reviews

The instrument which Klucevsek plays is a free bass accordion with a 6 1/2 octave range. The term "free bass" refers to the left hand manual which consists of five rows of buttons arranged chromatically, each button containing a single pitch. The instrument is "free" of the pre-set chords associated with the traditional (stradella bass) accordion.
This recording was made from January to April, 1991, except for "Road Runner" (January 1986) and "Manhattan Cascade" (February 1986).
The last four works on this disc were written as part of "Polka From the Fringe", a collection of over 30 polkas commissioned by Klucevsek.
