Flaco Jimenez: Viva los Accordion
Karl Dallas, Melody Maker, 12 February 1977
THE DIATONIC accordion is basically a fairly rudimentary instrument. Like a mouth organ, it plays one note as you pull it out and another as you push it in. It can only play in three keys. The bass chords are limited, and so, in the hands of an ordinary musician, its scope is limited too.
