Art Van Damme Quintet - A Perfect Match

Today's offering is a jaunty outing from jazz accordionist Art Van Damme. For this album he teams up with guitarist Johnny Smith, hence the title. The smooth tones of Smith's guitar contrast well with the raspy edge of the accordion, and the two protagonists, with a sound understanding of each others phrasing, complement each other well.
The result is light and airy in mood, and the girl in the red bikini tops off a delightful retro listening experience.
