I’ve been obsessed with the accordion for months now, particularly after seeing a Django Reinhardt tribute concert at the Kennedy Center last November with gypsy guitar masters Dorado and Samson Schmitt and co-starring accordionist Ludovic Beier. The accordion reminds me of the romance and allure of Paris and the “hot jazz” of the ’20s.

Through another blog, “A Texan in Argentina,” I learned of a tango and electronica fusion group called “Tanghetto” popular with Argentines. This is the perfect mix of contemporary and old jazz flavor for my tastes.
