Don’t knock it ;)
I have a couple of stunning melodeon-based albums by a guy called Riccardo Tesi. He does all kinds of world music, traditional Italian folk tunes, and jazz on the melodeon, but specialises in jazz/tarantella crossovers! I saw him at a free jazz festival in Nice about 6 years ago and his music is just fantastically compelling – you cannot feel grumpy listening to it. This man’s squeezbox rocks – he makes noises out of the thing that are just amazing.
ah, but is particularly not fond of said instrument and its perpetrators.
HMHB have used some great phrases in their songs….
“Let’s play the bongo-laced twenty-second album”….
“Fifteen minutes of mantra-filled oompah”…
It seems quite reasonable to experiment on accordionists… assuming one has run out of politicians and banjo players.
