| Gary Blair is well known as
one of Scotland's foremost accordion entertainers and presents
himself on this CD with a very enjoyable and entertaining choice
of music. He has divided the programme into 12 sections, calling
them: Waltz Time, Continental Time, March Time, etc…. making it
easy for people to select which style of music they would like
to listen to, without having to listen to it first!
Although Gary's performance consists of many
traditional pieces, he changes them in a pleasantly unusual
way. This has been achieved by colouring them with Scottish
folk motives, which give them a unique and interesting style.
In the pieces like Morrison's Jig, Glasgow City Police Pipers,
Gary offers us a completely new sound, by combining the accordion
Gary and his band sound so alive, inventive
and sophisticated and they play with such SPIRIT! They must
really enjoy making music, as this is so apparent in this EXCELLENT
