Our critics' picks in new releases

Avant-garde accordion may seem like a funny concept, but Klucevsek brings out the breath of life that powers this most unfairly lampooned instrument. On "Tales From the Cryptic," the saxophonist Phillip Johnston joins Klucevsek on fifteen compositions that are, by turns, jazzy, Eastern-European-tinged, medieval sounding, languorously ballad-like, or downright dissonant. The music is full of a taut, guarded energy as the accordion and saxophone twist around each other, sometimes joining in partnership, sometimes fluttering away like lost helium balloons on little gusts of melody and rhythm.
