Marching Into March (Not Yet Swinging Into Spring, It's Still Too Cold) With Pilsner's Picks!

The Donald The President (or is that The President The Donald?), hasn't found any reason to shut down Pilsner's Picks yet, so here's the March edition.

Notable this month, a real oddity in the enormous Duke Ellington discography: an early Ellington band record with an accordion as the featured instrument. I suspect that this is the only such record of the Duke's, and I've heard most of them from the 20's and 30's. Who did he think he was, anyway? Lawrence Welk?!

The identity of the accordion player is unknown, at least to me, but he's very good and he fits right in. If you've only got one shot at musical immortality, then you should, of course, take it!
