Russ Messina displays his musical skills and creative Jazz compositions on "Accordion In The Modern Mood". This album is a great example of early Jazz Accordion (recorded in 1958). Messina mixes Swing, Big Band & a touch of Bebop throughout his arrangments & improvisations. Messina is joined by Frank Primerano, on Bass, and Sandy Graff on drums. This album is a must have for anyone that likes Jazz or Accordion music.
I´ve heard them all. Without a doubt, Russ Messina was the greatest jazz accordionist ever. Though the album is fifty years old, the music is timeless.
