Mmm… Songs for Ice Cream Trucks
Jul., 9, 2007
As the dog days of summer take hold, who can resist the siren call of the ice cream truck? I sure can’t; the stacks of Choco Tacos in my freezer are proof.

Gothamist today has a fun interview with Michael Hearst, who loves ice cream but grew tired of hearing trucks play the same old songs summer after summer. So he sat down and created an entire album of new music for ice cream trucks, appropriately titled Songs for Ice Cream Trucks, with song titles like “The Popsicle Parade”, “Tones for Cones”, and my favorite, “Chocolate, Vanilla or Swirl?”

As with his work in One Ring Zero, Hearst uses a variety of eclectic instruments — including accordion, melodica, claviola, glockenspiel, and theremin — to evoke memories of childhood summers, but without the tinny, repetitive renditions of “Pop Goes the Weasel.” The album was featured on a Today Show segment and more than fifty trucks nationwide are now playing his music. The track linked below is one of the album’s more melancholy tunes: a rumination on where ice cream trucks go during the winter.

Gary Blair & Gary Blair - USA Tour Report!
Jul., 6, 2007
 - My journey started with Vegas. My son and I arrived in Vegas on Friday 15th June. Once again  my Accordion went missing !!  I phoned Continental airlines every couple of hours (1/2 hour to get thru each time) to be greeted with " we are trying to locate your baggage" - 3 days later,it turned up in good condition.
The Vegas festival was a blast!
Every evening at 5, Steve and Mike Trucco had a cocktail party in their suite. Art van Damme, Dick Contino, Tony Lovello etc were also there. I was really excited to meet Carl Fortina for the first time (he of godfather theme fame) and found him to be a very warm and lovely person.  Peter Soave was first on the bill on the Monday night, but due to a sticky bass button, he asked if I would swop places. I gladly changed places with him and found the audience very receptive and warm.
 Nightly , we had a blast after hours in the "Concerto room", inviting the audience members to come up and play.
The workshops were extremely well attended and many people asked questions relating to all things accordion.  I particularly enjoyed the company of Walter Ostanek and his band who were great fun. My son and I also enjoyed the company of Rene de La Prad from San Francisco. She is a live wire!!
  My son Gary (15) was invited to perform a few tunes at the Thursday lunch concert and received a standing ovation)
  We had to leave Vegas on Thursday night at 12 midnight and fly to Seattle. We were picked up ( at 2.45am) by my dear friends from Portland , Geoff and Joyce levear and arrived in Leavenworth at 5.45am. I started judging the competitions at 9 am and held 2 workshops ( 12 am and 6pm)   The standard this year was quite superb!
Many of the big names competed, Sheila miller Bower, Patricia Bartell,Diane Hagen,Chelsey Mayes ( New Zealand) and many others.
 What I liked most of all about the comps, was the atmosphere and camaraderie between competitors. They all treated each other as good friends.  A special mention has to go to 14 Michael Bridge from Calgary, who won 7 or 8  first places and 2nd in the Leavenworth open. This lad is something very special indeed!
 Not one to miss a jam session, my son and I joined many other players in Andreas Keller for a great party atmosphere (videos on you tube to follow) every night.
 We then headed for a couple of days in Portland , Oregon and were pleased to be invited to a hastily arranged dinner/party where 25 accordion enthusiasts got together for 2 anniversaries, Chuck Berger's Birthday and a going away party for my son and I.
  We had the most wonderful time in the USA and found everyone to be simply divine. America is a superb country as are its people.
 We arrived back in Glasgow just 24 hours before the terrorist attack on the Airport. A close call. 
  Will definitely be back next year and hope to extend the tour to take in more cities.
Anyone interested can see the photos at

Best Wishes to UKAO from,

International adjudicator - John Leslie
  Sevenoaks Music Festival On Saturday 23rd June 2007 the accordion section of the Sevenoaks Music Festival commenced at 9.30 a.m. with John Leslie adjudicating 15 sections.The first section of the day was the beginners class, and the first competitor to play was Laura Harding from Horsham. Mary Knight, (from Worthing) won the Grade 3 - 4 section, playing the Tarantella Boogie, by John Leslie. Natalie Gillbanks from Surbiton, played  "Kopukkaa" which is a traditional Finnish folk song, arranged for accordion by Matti Rantonen. The Sevenoaks Festival has a very forward looking section to encourage musicians to compose for the accordion, there were two sections in this category, class 731 - composition for "solo accordion" and class 722 - composition for "two accordions" (Duet) Both sections were awarded to Rene Mairis, (from the Isle of Wight) this budding composer received extremely high praise from Mr. Leslie, both for musical content and correctness of scoring, Mr. Leslie added that he highly recommends that teachers use the two Rene Mairis compositions, "Place du Terte" an extremely pleasant grade 3 musette style solo, and "The Inca Trail" a very descriptive duet, also grade 3, in the progress of their students education. These excellent Rene Mairis accordion pieces will soon be available from UKAO  www.ukaccordions.com
 Melanie Wright, playing "Rivalite" by Colombo, won the "Open Musette Class."   First place in the "Open Duet" was awarded to Melanie Wright and Richard Cotmore, playing the difficult arrangement by Romani, of the Grieg "Anitras Dance" Honey and Graham Lovell (from Christchurch), came a close second in the "Open Duet" playing an arrangement of Moulin Rouge, by John Leslie.The "Open Own Choice Solo" section was won by Alistair Williams playing the "Spanish Gipsy Dance" by Marquina, he was awarded a distinction, with an extremely high Mark of 90.The final section of the day was class 730 - Senior Orchestra, The Banstead Accordion Orchestra, conducted by Judy Brown, played Pizzicato Polka by J Strauss, followed by Sand Dance from Mediterranean suite arranged by Farran, The adjudicator (John Leslie) was full of praise for the conductor, Judy Brown, he complemented her on her style and clear instructions, however he did advise that she should take some members to task for not following her instructions more closely, and advised the orchestra members  that showing a conductor only the top of the head, was daunting for any conductor. John Leslie has a wonderful style of adjudicating in which he makes the competitors feel completely at ease. He gave a brief critique to each competitor after their performance including   a demonstration of how to bend a note. Competitors and audience alike found his comments extremely constructive and interesting.One member of the audience was heard to say "This is fantastic - it's just like having a free lesson "to which the fun reply from the competitor was "yes-at my expense!"The atmosphere was very pleasant and friendly and even the non accordionists were won over.There were several pianists, who after playing in their competitions had stumbled across the accordion section.They enjoyed it so much that they stayed for the whole thing  with some even purchasing some accordion music! The highest mark of the day was awarded to Stephen Best for his fantastic performance of  "The Hundred Acre Wood by Rene Mairis".  Stephen's portrayal, both playing and narrative in this piece had everybody (including the adjudicator and his clerk Chris) absolutely spellbound. THE ACCORDION WORLD MAGAZINE CHALLENGE TROPHY,which is awarded annually at the Sevenoaks Music Festival for the most outstanding performance of the day, was returned by last year's winner Mary Knight and will be presented to Stephen at the prize giving concert (date to be announced ) giving him another opportunity to play this beautiful piece. Thanks must go to Margaret Holgate and her organising committee and helpers at Sevenoaks, who ensured that everything ran so smoothly at the festival. This year's festival was well attended and it was especially refreshing to see such notable teachers either there in person or represented by their students, teachers of note such as Chris Carrington, Sheila Cooper, Sue Bennett, Julie North and Brenda Thompson .  Report by Neil Lane   Regarding the prize winners concert for the Sevenoaks Music Festival, it will be held in the theatre at the venue where the competition was held and will commence at 7-00 pm on Saturday 30th June 2007. Representing the accordion section will be Stephen Best, he will be playing and narrating the piece with which he won the entertainment section last Saturday. The piece is called “The 100 Acre Wood”  by Rene Mairis, and it is about Winnie the Poo,  and for which he was awarded 92 marks, this was the highest mark of the day, so Stephen will be awarded the Accordion World Trophy, donated by Mr. David Keen, from Uxbridge.
    Other winners of various instrumental, dance and voice sections, will also be performing, so it should be a very interesting evening.- ------------------ Neil Lane

Rett Syndrome News:
There has been major advances in the research of Rett Syndrome,
you may have seen the press coverage on the BBC National News earlier in the year.
To cut a long story short they have found a way to switch back on the defective
 gene that causes Rett Syndrome.  In Rett Syndrome mice this was done and
 within two weeks the mice were back to normal. 
They are now looking to do research on animals who's brain is similar to the
 human brain to find a way of delivering this therapy to humans with Rett's.

The Galanti Super Dominator
Jun., 27, 2007
A few months ago, I wrote about a vintage Galanti accordion ad promoting their Super Dominator line of accordions. Recently, an Italian reader sent me a Galanti brochure from the same period (around 1950), as well as a photo of his own Super Dominator. According to the brochure:“This sensitive musical instrument will outperform any other comparable accordion. It is the supreme achievement of the Galanti artisans… the culmination of a half-century of musical craftsmanship.”The ads don’t lie — this was an excellent accordion and one of the world’s best during its time. (Thanks Alberto!)
Lil’ Nathan Grows Up
Jun., 27, 2007
It’s tough to follow in your father’s footsteps, but in the zydeco world, it’s practically a rite of passage. Zydeco is filled with families where the torch (or accordion) has been passed from father to son through the generations — families like the Ardoins, Broussards, Cheniers, and Delafoses, to name a few.The Williams family is no different. Nathan Williams Jr. grew up in the shadow of his father, Nathan Sr., who leads Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas. He started playing in his father’s band at age 5 and recorded his first album, Zydeco Ballin’ when he was just 14. Today, the 20-year-old junior at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette has a new album out, Doin’ It Big Time and appears poised to emerge from his father’s shadow. Those are big shoes to fill, but in a zydeco family, it’s just part of growing up.Lil’ Nathan and the Zydeco Big Timers: Doin’ It Big Time (MP3 download)

Sammy Thomas Reaches the Top
Jun., 23, 2007
From the Top is a weekly radio show on NPR that showcases America’s top young classical musicians, aged 9 to 18. A couple weeks ago, the show featured 18-year-old U.S. National Accordion champion, Sammy Thomas. Classically trained since the age of ten, Sammy has played at many of the top accordion festivals (Cotati, Las Vegas) and is preparing to compete in this year’s Coupe Mondiale in Washington, DC.You can listen to the ten-minute clip of Sammy’s appearance on the NPR website. It begins with a brief interview (his least favorite accordion genre: polka), followed by his excellent performance of “Chopin’s Nightmare”:From the Top: Sammy Thomas (Real Audio)
