I came across a nice little NPR piece on the YouTube machine about “El Parche”, the late Esteban ‘Steve’ Jordan. Mr. Jordan was an individualist, very hard to pigeonhole into a category. Conjunto? Latin jazz? Cumbia? He had a very distinctive accordion sound. Mr. Jordan played a signature Hohner diatonic button accordion and he used effects like Echoplex and the like to create a sound much different than we normally hear out of that instrument.
