Andrea Parkins
Cast Iron Fact
Knitting Factory

Andrea Parkins' accordion breathes moody passages, functioning much like an organ might in this trio as Briggan Kraus cuts the drone on alto and Kenny Wollesen provides momentum on drums. She'll suddenly spring into action, creating havoc on the keyboard or running full gallop on piano. The group caught live at the Knitting Factory is definitely out, sometimes melancholy, often raucous, occasionally even pretty, and sporadically close to painful when the highs of Parkins' samples kick in.
