Thanks Dad!

"My father has played Accordian since he was a very small child. He played in a polka band when he became old enough to play in bars. After hours he would go down town and sit in with the local jazz musicians. My father always had some vinyl of some great player on the turn table most every night while i was growing up. Monk, Diz, Bird, Miles and Art. It may seem funny sounding to you, But Art Van Damme is the king of his instrument and just as great an artist. He could play great ballads like Miles. Dizzying hot upbeat tunes like Bird or foot taping latin beats like Dizzy. I personally am greatful I had a chance to know who he was and am Very glad his work is coming out on CD."

"IT TOO BAD THAT MANY PEOPLE THINK OF THE ACCORDIAN AS A MINOR INSTRUMENT. ART VAN DAMME'S STYLE WAS THE BEST OF THE BEST IN JAZZ STYLE OF THE 50'S AND 60'S. THIS IS A RECORDING THAT SHOULD BE IN ANY JAZZ LOVERS COLLECTION. ART VAN DAMME IS TO THE ACCORDIAN AS DAVE BRUBECK IS TO THE PIANO."
Relax....and enjoy

"Having played the accordion I can state for a fact that it's capable of many colors and sounds. In the hands of Mr. Van Damme it proves to be a true jazz instrument. This CD is a perfect example of his quintet and the added bonus are the tracks recorded with Jo (Darlene Edwards) Stafford. Ms. Stafford has perhaps one of the most effortless vocal styles and the interplay with Mr. Van Damme's accordion is an almost textbook example of how a singer with an accompanist should sound. Great stuff and here's hoping that more "Columbia Records" Van Damme is reissued."
