Le Nid Aimé

Delicate almost to the point of minimalism

Dirty Linen, USA

This recording by accordion duo Jean-Pierre Guiran and Cherie de Boer is delicate almost to the point of minimalism. Just two accordions, one playing mostly single-line melodies while the other plays crisp little rhythms in chords. They try on a lot of different styles like hats in a thrift store – swing, Caribbean, Latin, Yiddish, and of course French – and they all have the pensive quality of someone deciding which one suits best. It’s appealing in a quiet, unpretentious way. A very sweet, understated release.
