PLAYLIST FOR “ACCORDION WEEK” (10.24.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers #accordions

24 Oct

The accordion and Turntable For One. Some called that a perfect marriage, some called it synergy at its most organic, some just called it a night. There have been many swinging jazz accordionists in the past; and in the present, the instrument is finding its way into the background and the foreground with some great singers and musicians. Below is a partial list and all I had time to play this week.
