Big Basco (Go' Danish Folk Music)
cdRoots Code: go-0811

The quartet from Denmark, comprised of musicians from Denmark, Sweden and Scotland, comes back, with a horn section and a bracing new sound. Here's what they have to say for themselves: "Big Basco is a melting pot of wood and brass, with tasty and powerful music well suited to any audience. At the heart of this new constellation is the Danish quartet Basco, known for their insistent energy and fine compositions. Basco have now pulled three wonderful horn players out of their hats, three lovely and conveniently compressible veterans who, when not playing mighty folk, are known for their work with Denmark's Radio Big band, Swedish/Danish world music phenomenon Tummel and the Odense Symphony Orchestra. Folk, Jazz and Classical music, all stirred in together in a magical mess, with Basco's beautiful tunes and songs at its centre."

Big Basco is a melting pot of wood and brass, with tasty and powerful music well suited to any audience. At the heart of this new constellation is the Danish quartet Basco, known for their insistent energy and fine compositions. Basco have now pulled three wonderful horn players out of their hats, three lovely and conveniently compressible veterans who, when not playing mighty folk, are known for their work with Denmark's Radio Big band, Swedish/Danish world music phenomenon "Tummel" and the Odense Symphony Orchestra. Folk, Jazz and Classical music, all stirred in together in a magical mess, with Basco's beautiful tunes and songs at its centre. Basco's material is nearly all original, stealing shamelessly and frivolously from Scandinavian, English, Irish, Scottish and North American idioms to create a kind of organic, musical, soupy stew - full of vitamins and anti-oxidants. For Basco, the tune is the thing, and all else must spring from it. it's gotta swing!

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
