Art Van Damme - The Van Damme Sound/Martini Time

Well, here it is. For all you loungeophiles some Christmas cool. Art Van Damme played jazz music on the accordian. Some of the best fifties jazz quintet you will ever find. Art’s accordion style with his unique tunings are a treat for those interested in a very clean crisp (non mussette ) tonal quality. If you like lounge music or exotica, then you will enjoy this. It brings back *the* jazz accordionist of the 50's and 60's. Too many people dismiss the accordion as a toy, but in talented hands, it is a very much a musical instrument. Give it a listen and get ready for fun. At times it sounds as if you're strolling down the aisles at Home Depot, but other times the music really swings. Great for chillin' and parties.

This is interesting stuff. I think of the movie Ratatoulle. To me it really reminds me of old French music. I only got the first 11 or 12 songs as download 2 seems to be missing the rest, but what their was is pretty good. Thanks for posting this. I never would have known about them otherwise.
