Alexis ZoumbasAlexis Zoumbas ... LP
Orpheum/Mississippi, Late 20s. New Copy ... $13.99
Astonishing work from Alexis Zoumbas – a Greek musician from the early days of the 78rpm recording, and one who plays violin with the dexterity of Paganini, but in ways that are much more rootsy and fokloric overall! Zoumbas' classic 78s have recently gotten new attention on an excellent compilation – but this set brings together unissued material from the same time – a huge undertaking, given that the recordings are almost 100 years old, but come through with a surprising amount of life here – as Alexis' deft solos on his instrument blend with a bit of percussion, piano, or other instrumentation – depending on the track – all with a timeless vibe that's expanded on nicely in the detailed booklet of notes and photos. Titles include "Selfo", "Arvanitikos", "Skizo Rizo Mor Panaghio", "Epirotiko Moiroloi", "Tsamiko Makedonias", and "Rast Taxim". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes 8 page booklet!)

Alexis ZoumbasLament For Epirus – 1926 to 1928 (with bonus 7 inch) ... LP
Angry Mom/Third Man, Late 20s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
An amazing violinist from Greece, but one who recorded in New York during the 20s – on a host of rare 78rpm material presented in this lavish set! Alexis Zoumbas has a wonderfully melancholy feel to his instrument – a style that mixes virtuostic passages with these deeper, bluer qualities that are more folkloric – often supported with just a bit of work on acoustic bass for the recordings, or a bit of very cool cymbalom as well! The quality of the package and music reproductions puts this one right up there with collections of ethnic 78s on Tompkins Square or Honest Jons – and titles include "Alimbeis", "Tzamara Arvanitiko", "Syrtos Sta Dyo", "Frasia", and "Epirotiko Mirologi". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a bonus 7" single – not in previous packages – with two unissued alternate tracks!)
