I'm with you on that one. I've enjoyed Charlie Parker with the best of them (though I've never heard him play the accordion!), but I find an unrelenting series of fast notes (often, with accordions, at the same volume) ultimately batters my appreciation into insensibility. I have been known to call it 'turn the handle music', though not rudely within the hearing of the clearly talented player. I seem to remember somebody once saying in respect of improvisation, "The music lies in the choice of the silences as well as the choice of the notes." And a saxophonist friend of mine says he finds it harder to play fewer notes than many. (Again, we are talking of improvisation.) It's one reason I enjoy Richard Noel's playing so much - he really seems to understand the need for light and shade in playing a tune...., it's the expressive playing of slower melodies that, in my opinion, best highlights an accordion's and accordionist's capabilities.
