Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-06-27: Vancouver Jazz-Fest fest

June 25, 2018


Today’s selection from the Accordion Noir Classic vaults is episode number 82 from way back in late June, 2008, where we profiled that year’s instalment of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival… and accordion appearances therein.  We wander from there to accordion appearances in the jazz idiom generally, and from there to … music featuring accordions.  You know, like we do every week!  But it’s all good stuff, so don’t hold the loose adherence to theme against us!  At its original online home it was enjoyed some 3488 times, and it remains available for your listening enjoyment today at the Internet Archive.  To help you evaluate just how much you might enjoy listening to it, here’s its playlist!

John Hammond Jr. – Cold Water (Bruce Katz, acc.) – Push Comes to Shove (2007) –
Ry Cooder – Filipino Dance Hall Girl (Flaco Jimenez, acc.) – I, Flathead (2008) – Los Angeles, California, USA – (Mr. Cooder seems to have escaped having a “web presence” but there’s plenty of fan sites, here’s one: )
