There is a new accordion youtube channel—Jazz Accordion Solos— that consists of transcriptions of jazz accordion solos by artists such as George Shearing, Buster Moten, Art Van Damme, Alice Hall, Gus Viseur, Tommy Gumina, Pete Jolly, Johnny Meijer, Matt Mathews, and Frank Marocco. Yesterday, the first part of a five-part interview with Richard Galliano appeared. The site hosted by Julien Labro, who is quite an accomplished accordionist himself. Art Van Damme said this about him, "If the accordion world is looking for a new star… Julien Labro gets my vote!"

On the About page it says "Play along on our Soundslice channel..." I don't know how to do that, but maybe somebody else can tell us.

Nice! There's even some Ernie Felice on there--one of my faves.

I started this post here in the Accordion Chat forum because I wasn't sure if it should be in The I Like That, Teaching & Learning, or Tunes & How to Play Them forums. The Solo Jazz Accordion YouTube channel I referenced could work in all of them. But for future reference, I think it should be in the Tunes How to Play Them/Jazz and Blues subsection. That is where people will most logically look for transcriptions like these. Is it possible to move this discussion to Tunes How to Play Them/Jazz and Blues subsection?

I don't think it matters which section you post in as they all come up in Bold script when a new post is made. I just click on all the dark blue ones and that way I don't miss any (hopefully) . Thanks anyway Jim 👍

I was thinking more for the longer term. If a person decides on their own (ie not responding to someone else's post) that they want to look for instruction on how to play tunes they might use the search function to try to find a particular tune or browse one of the Tunes & How to Play Them sections. In either case, I don't think they will find the link to the Jazz Accordion Solos transcriptions. I'm sure that it is a holdover (or curse) from my long ago library work that I hope to make learning tools as easily accessable as possible, even though I know that it is an impossible hope.
