Accordion accompaniment for Real Book jazz standards

We're launching a new program! Here's the story; We got our Real Book in an alley near the Berklee School of Music back in 1977 and we've been playing the charts ever since. A few year back one of us decided to learn to play accordion and found the instrument to be a natural fit for playing jazz standards. The stradella bass system is powerful and we decided she should go through the charts and add the songs to our YouTube Channel @accompanists. The next step is to record an ensemble so soloists have their very own online rhythm section of these famous jazz standards to sing or solo along with. Stay Tuned!
