Editor's note: new-fangled indeed! A polka jazz band with some dreamy organ and oompah bass tossed in for good measure. A brilliant cover with a different sounding polka than I'm used to hearing. Where most is festive and rowdy this is more laid-back, pensive and reflective as if it were 2PM the next day and all of the Stoshes who attended the party were just rolling off their basement couches and recounting the good times, pierogi and beer that they had partaken of and wondering who their stara baba woman had assaulted, browbeat and abused during the night.

My son played the trombone in that band and for that record. What wonderful times it was to go and hear them play. This was an excellent band.
Thank you very much for posting this.
