Liner Note Author: Al Fichera.
The combination of these Art Van Damme albums, Accordion … la Mode and A Perfect Match, provide pleasant interpretations of pop-jazz standards with the accordion as the featured instrument. The familiar melodies of "On Green Dolphin Street," "Poinciana," and "Bye Bye Blackbird" hold up exceptionally well. These LPs were originally released on Columbia Records in the early '60s and had been out of print until Collectables reissued them in 2000. ~ Al Campbell
