"uncategorizable"? Ha!

Dylan

This is a great album, 3 Leg Torso is wonderful to see live: full of energy, Klezmer, Polka, accordian, sweat and laughter. eMusic: uncategorizable -> sountracks/other & Environmental? Are you crazy? If nowhere else, put them in "world music, central europe", or anywhere, but not in here with the whales and rainsticks.

Music for Your Bavarian Life

Cosmosis

I discovered 3 Leg Torso with their most recent album, and while I like that album more (and eMusic doesn't carry it yet), this album is still strong. Eastern European flavors abound in this instrumental album. If you like this, you'll certainly like Devotchka and Beirut, both available on eMusic. Recommended reading while listening: The Road Is Wider Than Long, by Roland Penrose.

They Say All Music Guide

An Eastern European flavor and improvisation serve as the basis for the 3 Leg Torso modern chamber ensemble approach. The trio that creates this instrumental music, often with a “nuevo tango” rhythm, plays violin, cello, and accordion. The recording also includes percussion. Leading the group is violinist Bela Balogh, a first-generation American and third-generation Hungarian musician. The trio’s approach includes the tango transformation of Astor Piazzolla with a non-traditional approach to classical and folk instrumentation. In 3 Leg Torso’s music, insistent and urgent staccato dance rhythms, quickly paced, underlie Eastern European tone coloring. Suggesting the Balkan sounds are legato passages on the violin and accordion. This contrast and complexity keep the group’s tunes fresh and interesting. – Tom Schulte
