Gallianissimo

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The accordion is often thought of in jazz as either a joke or a novelty, but there have been a limited number of talented practitioners including, in recent times, Richard Galliano. This best-of collection draws its material from a 16-year period, featuring Galliano on 15 selections, ten of which are his originals. The music ranges from straight-ahead and tangos to mood music and folkish songs.

This set serves as an excellent introduction to Richard Galliano's music and sound.
