Frank Marocco, Hollywood Accordionist
Aug., 3, 2007
Anna and I recently saw the new Disney-Pixar film Ratatouille (two thumbs up!) and we came away big fans of Michael Giacchino’s soundtrack, particularly for its liberal use of the accordion. (As you might expect from a film set in Paris.) But who was squeezing the bellows as Remy and his buddies took over the kitchen at Gusteau’s? Sure enough, it was the hardest-working accordionist in Hollywood, Frank Marocco.

Frank Marocco grew up just outside of Chicago (Waukegan) and started playing the accordion when he was only seven years old. By the 1950s, he had formed his own trio and played the hotel and club circuit around Las Vegas and Palm Springs before moving to Los Angeles. There, he played with the Les Brown Band, joined Bob Hope on countless tours overseas, and began his career as a highly sought-after session musician. His hundreds of credits range from the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds to the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Odds are, if you hear an accordion in a movie, TV show, or commercial — it’s Frank Marocco.

One of Marocco’s hallmarks has always been his versatility. Jazz, classical, latin… regardless of the genre, he always plays flawlessly and passionately. Here’s a video clip of Marocco performing his own arrangement of Astor Piazzola’s classic tango, “Oblivion”:

Pulaski Polka Days Wrapup
Jul., 25, 2007
Sounds like last weekend’s Pulaski Polka Days, where “polka rhythm filled the air and infiltrated people’s bones,” was a rousing success. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette’s recap, there was a lively turnout — young and old alike — for the 29th edition of one of the nation’s biggest polka festivals:“If you think polka music is uncool or only for the elderly, talk to Eric Niziolek, 25, and his buddies, who have been coming to the event from their homes near Wausau every year for about the last five years. ‘Good music, good people, girls and beer,’ said Niziolek when asked what kept him coming back.”I also found a Flickr photoset that captures the festival parade, as well as some of the bands, including the shot below — appropriately titled “Only in Wisconsin.”Pulaski Polka Days 2007, uploaded by The Dana Files
Olive Blossoms
Jul., 23, 2007
Greetings UKAO:

I have recently released an album of accordion solos.  The objective of this CD is to promote the accordion as a unique solo instrument and to demonstrate what the instrument can do, provided the hours are put in to achieve that goal. 
The CD is titled: "Olive Blossoms", which is arguably one of the prettiest tunes ever written for the instrument. 
Please read about it by clicking on the following links:

Before his departure he invited his friends to his house in the Normandie to empty his wine cellar. Further on the menu: lobster, foie grass and smoked salmon, accompanied by the best French wine.

Accordionist wins major competition
Jul., 18, 2007
Milos Milivojevic won the prestigious Royal Academy of Music Club Prize. The final round was held in the Academy’s Duke’s Hall on 21st June. The 4 finalist were Mariangela Vacatello, piano. David Butt Philip,baritone. Maria Oldak, violin. Milos Milivojevic, accordion.The distinguished jury consisted of Professor Jonathan Freeman-Attwood, Vice Principal of the RAM. Dame Felicity Lott, Professor George Caird, Principal of the Birmingham Conservatoire, violinist Clio Gould and pianist  Leslie Howard. In his summing up Professor Jonathan Freeman-Attwood, chairman of the jury, said;” we wave been teaching the accordion here for the past 20 years and in that time we have become used to very high standards of performance. Tonight was no exception. This was playing of the highest level, we loved it. You brought something new to Scarlatti and Mendelssohn and  Lindeberg’s Jeux d’anche was brilliant”.  Milos was given a standing ovation at the presentation award.The prize consists of a full evening recital at the RAM in January 2008 plus £1.000. Milos’ success in this competition and past successes in the Park Lane contemporary music series (Purcell Room) and Wigmore Award, further underlines the integration and acceptance of the accordion at the highest level and I hope it will encourage young accordionists in the UK to seek to follow his example. The new government accredited Trinity/Guildhall Examination Board grade accordion syllabus paves the way for the development of the accordion in schools throughout the UK. It is a professionally compiled syllabus that provides a framework for musical and technical development for students, and teachers. Standards need to be raised in the UK and this can go a long way to achieving that. The accordion will now be examined by the same criteria applied to all other instruments. We now have equality and I hope this will bring to a swift end the segregation that has stood in the way of the instruments development in the UK for so many years. I believe in the power of collective energy and I hope we can all pull together – preferably in the same direction, to ensure that we have an accordion development in the UK that we can be proud of and one admired and respected within the international accordion community.

Daniel Binelli, Tango Master
Jul., 18, 2007
One of my coworkers caught the San Francisco Symphony’s free concert in Dolores Park on Sunday, which featured bandonen virtuoso Daniel Binelli. Binelli is a seasoned tango veteran, having been a member of both Osvaldo Pugliese’s orchestra and Astor Piazzolla’s New Tango Sextet, touring extensively with the latter until Piazzolla’s death.Today, Binelli often performs with symphonies, his own quintet, and as part of a duo with Uruguayan pianist Polly Ferman. A longtime friend of Piazzolla’s, Binelli is considered one of the primary torchbearers of the tango nuevo master’s musical legacy. Here’s a clip of Binelli interpreting Piazzolla’s classic “Adios Nonino”:Daniel Binelli: Adios Nonino (MP3 sample)
