Fanfare Ciocarlia - GILI GARABDI (2005)

This is the best produced of the Fanfare releases and the band is the tightest I've heard. They manage to incorporate their famous lightening fast um-pa sound with, dare I say, catchy licks that would put most American jazz musicians to shame. The album notes, by the way, hint at a Gypsy influence on American jazz and by the way Fanfare play, I would be willing to believe that Gypsies not only influenced jazz, but perfected it.
