Sounding Out the Accordion

What Are You Doing For World Accordion Day? - International

by Harley Jones
With all the turmoil of Covid-19 internationally, many World Accordion Day (WAD) events are prevented by regulations from proceeding. The World Accordion Day site will still report those events that are able to happen.

Planned is a live WAD video broadcast on May 6th hosted by Kevin Friedrich & Grayson Masefield of 2 hours with a focus on childhood accordion education.

For groups and individuals around the world: What are you doing for World Accordion Day to promote the accordion in your country? World Accordion day is on May 6th, which is the day the accordion was patented in 1829.

World Accordion Day was started in 2009 by the CIA and has been very successful, generating a lot of positive publicity for the accordion. A key part of this event is the World Accordion Day website to register your event and with background information for the media.

Every association, group, orchestra, performer and teacher that can, is asked to actively support this event by encouraging national and local accordion activities to happen in their country on this day or the weekend either side of Accordion Day if that should be more convenient.

Everyone can register their World Accordion Day activity on the website and send a report of their event after, for that website.

No event is too big or too small. ALL accordion events celebrating World Accordion Day are welcome. This is a CIA promotion for the accordion in which every accordion enthusiast can participate and help bring our accordion world together as well as strongly promote the accordion.

The Ins and the Outs of the Accordion

Grammy winner Flaco Jimenez's album placed in National Recording Registry - USA

by Diatonic News
Flaco Jimenez
His work is the only recording by a Latino artist added to the registry this year.

SAN ANTONIO — The album “Partners” by six-time Grammy winner Flaco Jiménez has been added to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress.

Jiménez, 82, whose real name is Leonardo, is best known nationally as a member of the Texas Tornados, who performed the song “Hey Baby, Que Pasó?”

Jimenez’s 1992 album is one of 25 new recordings added to the collection that preserves audio recordings based on their cultural, historical or aesthetic importance.

"People used to regard my music as cantina music, just no respect," he said in an interview with the Library of Congress. "The accordion was considered something like a party joke ... I really give respect to everyone who helped me out on this record and I'm flattered by this recognition."

The album is a collaboration with other musicians, including Los Lobos and Linda Ronstadt and others.

Jiménez, who is Mexican American, mostly performs conjunto, a genre that relies heavily on the accordion and bajo sexto, which is in the guitar family.

Accordionist and Conjunto and Tejano music legend Flaco Jimenez. The Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner has played with the likes of B.B. King, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger and many others.Guillermina Zabala
But Jiménez has performed across many musical genres and with a variety of musicians, including Doug Sahm, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Dwight Yoakam, among others.

“Partners is a good example of how he’s a crossover,” said Maria Peña, a Library of Congress Hispanic media spokeswoman. “What’s great about this album is it shows his collaborations —not to mention that he’s got a career that spanned seven decades. This is a huge acknowledgement of his work.”

Jiménez’s recording is the only one by a Latino artist to be included in the registry this year.

The collection, which spans 143 years of music and was launched in 2002, now has 21 albums or recordings with Latino artists, including Jiménez's.

The registry includes recordings by the artists Selena, Santana, Richie Valens, Tito Puente, Lydia Mendoza, Carmen Miranda, Fania All-Stars and others.

The recognition is one of many that Jiménez has earned, including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Billboard Latin Music Lifetime Achievement Award and a Tejano Music Award.

In 2012, he was awarded the National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship.

Postponed to 2022 / TheGator by the Bay Festival - USA

by Diatonic News
Gator by the Bay Festival 2022
The Organizers write:
Dear Gator Fans, Friends, and Supporters-

What’s happening with Gator By The Bay 2021?
Unfortunately, it is postponed until 2022.

We have been enthusiastically working since last year on the 20th anniversary edition of your Gator By The Bay Festival which was to take place in May, 2021. Up until this week, we had been optimistic about producing the May festival as planned. Multiple unknowns related to the COVID pandemic unfortunately have made planning exceedingly difficult. Although disappointing, it is clear to us that canceling the 2021 festival is the right decision.

The festival production requires permits and licenses issued by local and county authorities. To date, we have no assurance that those permits will be available. We seriously considered the possibility of postponing the festival into the summer months but realized that even that time frame remains unclear. Rather than making plans on yet another uncertain date in 2021, we concluded that setting our sights and confidently directing our efforts to the May 5-8, 2022, Mother’s Day weekend in San Diego, is a better use of our energy and resources.

All of us find great joy from the fun and connections that the festival generates, and we are optimistic that we will be able to safely share and enjoy live music and the festival experience again sometime soon. Currently, great progress is being made to neutralize the virus threat, and we realistically anticipate 2022 being a lot more normal than either last year was or this year might be.

We are forever grateful to our ticket holders for your patience and understanding during these unpredictable times. Your continued support allows us to be optimistic about the future and able to move boldly forward to produce a spectacular 2022 festival.

We ask those of you who have tickets carried over from 2020 to share our 2022 vision by carrying them over again to 2022. If your situation has changed and this presents a financial difficulty, contact us at process@gatorbythebay.com. You can request a refund through this link. You can If you have made hotel reservations, please remember to cancel them, but look for 2022 hotel information announcements very soon.

Astor Piazzolla "la rage du tango" avec Louise Jallu - France

by Diatonic News
Astor Piazzolla
Comment s’attaque-t-on à un monument tel qu’Astor Piazzolla, roi du bandonéon et empereur du tango ? « Avec un peu de culot », répond tout sourire Louise Jallu, 26 ans (photo). La bandonéoniste française s’est affranchie de la présence magistrale du musicien argentin, qui aurait eu 100 ans en 2021, pour mieux l’interpréter avec une énergie neuve. En quartet, avec Mathias Lévy au violon et à la guitare électrique, Marc Benham aux pianos et Alexandre Perrot à la contrebasse, elle fait flamboyer des « classiques », tel le célèbre Libertango.

Louise Jallu y pensait depuis ses débuts au bandonéon… à 5 ans. « Ma sœur aînée l’étudiait au conservatoire de Gennevilliers. J’étais fascinée par le son de cet instrument », raconte-t-elle. Piazzolla était alors trop difficile pour les fillettes. Depuis, formée au sein du même conservatoire par Bernard Cavanna, conseillée par le pianiste Gustavo Beytelmann, qui a joué auprès du maestro, la jeune artiste s’est lancée, enregistrant Piazzolla 2021 à la Philharmonie de Paris.

Un exceptionnel solo au bugle du trompettiste de jazz Médéric Collignon éclaire le titre Oblivion, réinventé. D’autres prennent des résonances de musique contemporaine, évoquant l’esprit de Piazzolla sans l’imiter. Le maestro « se permettait beaucoup de variations dans les harmonies et les rythmes ».Il n’a jamais figé ses compositions. « Ce que j’aime chez Piazzolla, c’est la rage qu’il dégage à faire vivre sa musique, sa sincérité folle sur scène. C’est un personnage fascinant », s’enflamme Louise Jallu.

Une fascination partagée par le bandonéoniste Sébastien Authemayou et la pianiste Marielle Gars, réunis dans le Duo Intermezzo. Ces deux passionnés de la vie et de l’œuvre de l’inventeur du « tango nuevo » consacrent un splendide livre-disque au musicien exilé en Europe pendant la dictature argentine et décédé en 1992.

Libertad montre en majesté, avec des archives inédites, de rares témoignages et un morceau à écouter à chaque chapitre, un artiste majeur à l’importante postérité, du violoncelliste Yo-Yo Ma à Guy Marchand. L’acteur et chanteur français, qui signe la postface de cette biographie de référence, avait créé en 1975 la version française de Libertango, chanson qui a marqué les esprits, « Moi je suis tango, tango »…
