[GYPSY JAZZ] Portland’s gypsy-music underworld has proven surprisingly fruitful and enduring, producing the acclaimed Three Leg Torso, among various other groups. But gypsy army Underscore Orkestra is an entirely different beast, mainly because the troupe manages an interesting compromise between caravan music and old-school Cab Calloway-style jazz. As belly dancers undulate, piccolo and accordions blare over decidedly Copacabana-inspired vocalization. It’s an immersive experience that opens the door into this mostly obscure genre, allowing you to become entranced before being inevitably pulled in.
