Walter Ostanek and Friends - Plays Kenny Bass and his Polka Poppers

Canada's Polka King, Walter Ostanek has won 3 Grammy Awards. He is still ongoing. Walter released his first album in 1964. Over the years Walter has released more than 100 albums sharing his love and passion for Cleveland-Style Polkas and Waltzes. This recording Walter Ostanek and Friends plays Kenny Bass and his Polka Poppers has Walter Ostanek and others playing 24 songs that Kenny Bass played during his career. A nostalgic tribute CD that would benefit the National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame. It's Happy Polka Time, just like the original Bass recordings with some truly great artists such as Dick Sodja and Dick Flaisman. This 2017 production brings some of the best variety and quality musicianship including Joey Miskulin and Ron Sluga. Enjoy the best of Bass with Walter Ostanek and Friends including the all time hit, "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain".

 

 

About Walter

Walter Ostanek is one of the living legends of polka music. The three-time Grammy winner has been entertaining since his teens. He first achieved notice in the 1950s as the leader of a young generation of performers inspired by the Cleveland-Style classics – Frank Yankovic, Johnny Pecon, Johnny Vadnal, Eddie Habat and Kenny Bass. Walter’s sunny delivery was ideal for television and his popular polka show brought good-time music into Canadian homes.

 

 

WALTER OSTANEK PLAYS KENNY BASS AND HIS POLKA POPPERS

An album production of two classic Cleveland-Style recording artists, KENNY BASS originally from the 1950's and WALTER OSTANEK still ongoing and Grammy award winning, considered CANADA'S POLKA KING.  Their recordings over the years have been some of the best in the business and are aptly described by the selection "It's Happy Polka Time" in this special release for polkas.nl out of Holland and Polka enthusiast John Hasper.  Just like the original Bass recordings with some truly great artists such as Dick Sodja and Dick Flaisman, this 2017 production brings some of the best variety and quality musicianship including Joey Miskulin.  Enjoy the best of Bass with Walter Ostanek including the all time hit, "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" going back to the ballad origination in the 1940's by Sons of the Pioneers then in later years by Willy Nelson, but of course put into a great polka, Cleveland-Style.
