I have a 1972 LP of Marcosignori playing accordion showpieces. The notes on the record sleeve describe him as "one of the world's few accordion players in possession of sufficient experience and musical integrity to sustain a full- length solo concert performance".
In fact of the several LPs and CDs I have of piano accordion playing this one is indeed the only one that is solo, all others having rythmn backing or are part of a combo. Hence, my question is Have you any suggestions of solo piano accordion recordings that you recommend?

"Simply Solo" was the final album by Scottish Accordion maestro Bobby Macleod and it was just Bobby on the accordion with no band. Lovely playing and so interesting to hear.

Joey is always entertaining in all venues. One of the accomplished accordionist's that has mastered changing bellows
direction without breaking a note.

At the moment, for some reason, I find Richard Noel's rendering of 'Mr Bojangles' particularly uplifting. Odd, when you think the song is about an encounter in a New Orleans drunk tank.
