We're celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States so I figured this song would be appropriate...
I see the text of Jeff's post, but no music or link to music. Is it just me (my computer. etc.)? I am not having trouble seeing any of the other "I Did That videos" I have tried.
Nice rendition Jeff. Your Tiger is in great shape & has very tasteful sound.
I was working for a Titano dealer when the well known Palmer & Hughes pair convinced the American accordion importer
Ernest Deffner to import a new unique designed accordion model for the US market. Thier design suggested was for a
lightwheight accordion with a slanted keyboard & Quint tuning. Ernest Deffner imported his brands Titano (Victoria) &
PANaccordion (Crucianelli) and the maker of the Tiger design was given to the Crucianelli factory. They wer imported here
with different badges - The Tiger & Titano badge went to Titano dealers and the badge Tiger went to PANcordion dealers.
There are a few Tigers out there with badge names other than Titano and Tiger. These different badge names were for
non stocking dealers of Deffner products such as Sano, Excelsior, & Bell for example. If purchasing enough Tiger model
accordions Deffner would import them with a different badge name & color of their choice. No matter of the badge name they
were ALL made by Crucianelli of Italy.
Very nice playing and arrangement. I like your LH accompaniment.We're celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States so I figured this song would be appropriate...

Gravy Waltz was co-written by Steve Allen who holds the world record for having composed the most songs.
What is theory behind the slanted keyboard on the Tiger?
Thanks for the interesting information. Great post.It actually makes a whole lot of sense. It's a much more natural angle to play the keyboard from, as you can probably imagine if you just bring your hand/wrist over from your side as if miming playing an invisible accordion. The hand "wants to" play at an angle like that. No need to awkwardly stick your elbow out like you do (or at least should be doing) with a flat keyboard.
As a bonus, the angle creates a a bit of room in the back, such that the strap tucks nicely underneath when storing it in the case.
