VORN

a1434588716_10

Here’s something you don’t see every day: a solo album of “songs and improvisations” performed primarily on the accordion. Rüdiger Carl is nothing if not sui generis, and here listeners get a chance to hear Carl in a truly unadorned musical setting. The plainness of the package belies the playfulness, humor, and sheer sonic range of Vorn. From hoary chestnuts like “Those Were the Days,” to Pharoah Sanders’ “Aum,” and back to “Abide with Me,” the album crosses boundaries with aplomb, at times sounding as old fashioned as, well, a bandoneon, and at others, like some strange precursor to Mouse on Mars. You’ve been Vorned!
