Squeezin’ Cool Jazz: Cory Pesaturo
Nov., 3, 2007
Do you dig jazz accordion? Yesterday’s Boston Globe has a glowing review of a recent performance by Cory Pesaturo, a 21-year-old jazz accordionist from Boston. Pesaturo is the only accordion player at the New England Conservatory of Music and, according to the Globe, “makes the instrument sound as natural and native to jazz as the saxophone or trumpet.”Pesaturo switches between acoustic and digital accordions, using the latter to play solos as different “instruments” simultaneously. In an interview with the Providence Journal, he mentions how people are often surprised by the accordion’s versatility:“It catches people’s eyes, and you can do anything with it. Most people think it’s only the polka box, but you can do totally everything.”He’s just released a new album, Change in the Weather, with saxophonist George Garzone, who’s a teacher at the Conservatory where Pesaturo is a student. Here’s their rendition of a Cole Porter classic from that album:Cory Pesaturo: What Is This Thing Called Love? (MP3 download)

Convert you Accordion into an Organ
Oct., 21, 2007
Following on from the Bonvicini Accordion console the other day you might have realised that it sound be relatively straightforward to build one from an old accordion. Well you won't have been the first person to have that idea - this article appeared in a magazine in 1962.

Hohner Organetta III
Oct., 21, 2007
I'm going from my email backlog (still) and have found these photos of a Hohner Organetta III from Sherry Smith with an appeal for more information about this accordion. Does anyone know anything ? It looks like it could be a 1930s model to me.
The Bobby Jones Mystery
Oct., 21, 2007
A few months ago, we wrote about the sudden disappearance of Bobby Jones, popular polka DJ and accordionist for the Bobby Jones Czech Band. Since then, we’ve received numerous emails and comments from friends and fans of Bobby who remember the joy and music he brought to their lives.As KHOU in Houston reported this week, though, we’re still no closer to finding out what happened to Bobby. Tire tracks and his license plate were found on the banks of the Colorado River in Wharton shortly after his disappearance, but an extensive search has failed to turn up his vehicle. Was it an accident? Was it suicide? Or is he still alive and somewhere else entirely? Fans have been frustrated by the lack of answers, but in some ways, it seems like the mystery has only served to further build the legend of Bobby Jones.
Torch Passed at Art’s Concertina Bar
Oct., 21, 2007
Art’s Concertina Bar in Milwaukee is a polka institution. Billed as the “only Concertina Bar in the U.S.A.,” the walls are lined with concertinas and memorabilia, there are live bands and dances every weekend, and the affable Art Altenburg presides over it all, posing for photos with tourists and squeezing out the occasional tune on the concertina.Art’s been trying to sell his business, though, so he can spend more time with his ailing mother. After a long search, he’s finally found a buyer: Andy Kochanski is taking over later this month and, thankfully, will be keeping the music that Art’s place is known for alive. Art’s Concertina Bar will become Kochanski’s Concertina Beer Hall and Andy will even allow accordions in (Art had strict concertina-only rules):“It’s open to people and musicians who just love polka music… I’m going to do as much as I can for the polka community.”Meanwhile, the 78-year-old Art still has dreams of his own to pursue:“I’ll probably go chasing women, do a little playing, and do a little traveling.”Sounds like a plan to me! There’s a farewell party for Art planned for next Saturday night, October 13, on his last night in business. Get there early and roll out the barrel one more time with a polka legend.
