Now, that's new!
The Hohner Corona has been THE workhorse in the Mexican/USA borderlands for years (see Flaco Jimenez) but this is something different. 3 rows are often seen as just 3 mouthorgans stuck together - especially in the UK for much of the past - but 19th century inventors were much cleverer than that.
Thanks so much for posting.
Oh, and I never thought I'd here this on a Corona:

Three voice musette Hohner Corona diatonics aren't very versatile.

Unless you're from Colombia:-

That Edgar Ayala recording is amazing. He's from Monterrey, Mexico. 

But that's an intense trip far from the 3-row norteno tradition there. I'm no expert but have only heard a couple of players (the late Steve Jordan, and Joel Guzmán) who jazz it up like that on three row, but they're much more rooted in the border tradition, with jazzy stuff mostly as an extension. Ayala's just full on jazz, and I haven't heard anybody doing that. Very impressive.

Thanks for posting!
