Päkkos Gustaf och Ole Hjorth
1996: GIGA GCD-28
I got this CD because Ole Hjorth had performed a hypnotically pattern-shifting track called simply Vals with the fiddler Björn Stäbi which appeared on a Nonesuch Explorer sampler LP called Dances of the World. I figured it would be of the same ilk, which it is, but none of the tracks here has quite the dizzying seduction that Vals did.
