Black and Tan Fantasy piano accordion solo sheet music; Duke Ellington, transcribed by Galla-Rini: 1927

March 26, 2012

There’s a cool piece of sheet music. Ellington for accordion, from 1927!

I’m reading Marion Jacobson’s Squeeze This! and it’s got me checking Anthony Galla-Rini‘s history.  He was a big classical-music pusher, including:

Too bad there’s not a cool cover-picture of Duke Ellington laying in with Galla-Rini on the accordion.  Ellington did record with accordionist Cornell Smelser, but I don’t know how often he played with one otherwise.
