Album Notes
Joe Bajuk, from the San Francisco area of California, was originally inspired by the music of Lojze Slak, playing the more European/Alpine style as the son of Slovenian immigrants who were from the Bela Krajina region.
Years ago, Joe collaborated with the late Gary Seibert and in his earliest recordings featured Gary's daughter Donna Seibert-Clay and son Mark Seibert. Gary was very instrumental in promoting Bajuk on the button box as they shared an album entitled "Twice As Nice".
This new album of mostly original Bajuk compositions, "Something Old, Something New", features Cleveland-style musicians Mark Habat, Eddie Rodick III, Ralph Delligatti, and Norm Kobal with guest appearances by California musicians Toni Gruber on sax and John Krische on piano accordion along with special recording assistance from Bob Kravos in his Chardon, Ohio studio. Talented Toni Trontel Solarz also odes a vocal rendition of "Treasured Memories".
Enjoy this "California Slovenian" sound of Joe Bajuk.

Really enjoyable
Bought this album for my dad's birthday as he loves accordion music. Thanks to CD baby I was able to listen to the album first, and knew my dad would love it. He had a very happy birthday thanks to this album and also "Twice as nice". We live in the UK but the shipping, packing, service and goods were excellent. We know where to come for great accordion music in future.
