I am very excited to release the first video as a teaser for the upcoming documentary on Joe. I thought that this tune would provide a nice preview, while also showing the beauty and expressiveness of the accordion. The supporting band sounds great, and Joe really digs in on his musette.
Before posting online, I showed the edit to Joe just to make sure he would be cool with me releasing it. He was ecstatic, and wrote to me the next morning saying that he played the video to his wife and it brought tears to her eyes. If that doesn’t give us motivation to finish this film, I don’t know what will.
