Wanted to relate a random cool experience. I had a small gypsy jazz jam session at my place with about 7 musicians hanging out on my back patio on a pleasant summer evening: 4 guitars, a bass player, a jazz violinist, and me on EC. We were going around the circle each selecting tunes from the Django Fakebook to play. One of the guitar players said he recently attended an Irish session at a pub in Maryland where he met a couple of Concertina players. Without thinking I started playing Jump At The Sun. This is an accomplished group of musicians and they caught on pretty quickly and joined in. The tune began to swing and everyone soloed and jammed. It was hoot. Unfortunately no recording of it.
Because we had so much fun at the last two... The Third Semi Bi-Annual DC Squeeze-In another gathering of concertinists, melodeonists, accordionists, and who knows, maybe a bandoneon. All genres of music; everything from Irish and English traditional to jazz and Klezmer.
