Product Description

It was said that the busy footsteps of commuters would come to a standstill insde Paris Metro train stations whenever the gifted accordion player Michael Ganian played his musettes there. Huge crowds would take pause and gather to listen to this brilliant musician, who created an entirely new genre of accordion music by blending the sounds of classical music, musette, world-beat, and jazz. JPMC Records is proud to be able to offer "Ici Paris," currently the only international release by this hard-to-find artist, who sadly was tragically killed in 2000, leaving us with only the few recordings he created during his short life. "Ici Paris" contains 26 of Ganian's compositions, on which he's joined by bassist Rudolf Smahel and drummer Vitezslav Vavrda. On several compositions, the trio is accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of the Czech Republic. Songs on this album include "Siene," "Carduelis de Musette," "Montparnasse Bienvenue," "Passion Tree," and "I Am In Heaven." His music does encompass a variety of styles and is truly unlike anything you've heard before. Supported by Smahel's capable walking bass lines and Vavrda's spirited drumming, Ganian is free to explore his complex compositions. Listening to any of the songs on this CD, you can almost imagine yourself sitting at a Parisian cafe or standing at the Metro station listening to Ganian with the rest of the awestruck crowd. "Ici Paris" includes works recorded from 1993 to 1999 and chronicles his development from vibrant street performer to accomplished composer. "Ici Paris" has consistently been JPMC Records' top selling album since its release in 2000 and we continue to get feedback from fans of Ganian's after purchasing the album.

This cd showcases some of the best of Michael Ganian's work and is a must for those who like French cafe style accordion. With the possibility of this being the only cd of his work available, "The excellent accordionist and original composer Michael Ganian came to a tragic end and lost his life on 13 April 2000, being killed in Brno, Czech Republic, one day before his leaving for the USA"- [...] -I would highly recommend adding this to your cd collection today.

Discovered in a Paris subway, the wonderful talent of Michael Ganian is preserved forever in this beautiful C.D. Sadly, Mr. Ganian was killed shortly after he recorded this.

There is so much heart and soul in this gorgeous, luscious music. It takes me to the heart of Paris; to the idealized, romantic, shimmering heart of Paris.

The music of Michael Ganian is unique. Listening to this cd while sitting in the balcony and looking at the sunset on the ocean is an experience like none other. If you like the music of Astor Piazolla, Gotan Project or Bajofondo Tango Club, this cd will surpass your expectations! Definitely buy this cd.

This extraordinarily talented person was able to bring the main tunnel of the Paris Metro to a halt just by ... playing there. An Armenian from Yerevan Armenia could hypnotize Parisians playing French Cafe style accordion music. It combines melancholic intonations typical to Armenian music with optimistic French. This is an absolutely unique virtuoso in his genre.
