Cs¢kolom: Sander Hoving, Jens Piezunka, Anneke Frankenberg, Anti von Klewitz.
New Europe meets old Europe on Cs¢kolom's Dog Daze, an intoxicating cocktail of an album mixed from traditional gypsy music, jazz, and classical. Anti VonKlewitz, Sander Hoving, Anneke Frankenberg, and Jens Piezunka build their arrangements from violins, violas, and a double bass, and rely heavily on traditional Eastern European (Hungary, Bulgaria, Transylvania) folk music for their repertoire. VonKlewitz handles the vocals, which are also sung in Eastern European languages, but are translated into English in the liner notes. Cs¢kolom easily moves between songs like "Ando Tyire," which strikes one as ultra-traditional gypsy folk music, to "Eastern Comfort," which is also traditional but sounds contemporary enough to work as a television theme song. "Fi Barbat," on the other hand, has a jazzy undertow, aided considerably by Lulo Reinhardt's guitar work (which sounds a lot like Django Reinhardt's work). The VonKlewitz original, "Lahore," ventures closer to classical, but in a lively fashion that never reminds one of National Public Radio at its most sleep-inducing. Dog Daze, at nearly 65 minutes, is a generous album, and if the various styles don't always flow easily into one another, it nonetheless keeps the music from falling into a rut. For fans of Cs¢kolom's previous albums, Dog Daze will be a welcome arrival. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr.
