This piece Flick-Flack Caroussel is a jazz show piece, A. Vossen's original recording is also on YT.
It's meant to be played fast, and it is a very difficult piece. He manages to keep rhythm and tempo.

This accordion busker can be musical, here in a slower piece, a tango:

Yep, not pleasant to listen to! Speed alone does not make good music.

He's certainly a very good player. I'd say there is definitely musicality there despite the silly speed (but would be better if he didn't have all voices blazing). It's not jazz though - more like an old-school kind of polka thing.

My friend plays that as one of her standbys when she's out. But not that fast.

This is the sort of thing that non accordionists hate about the accordion ....yes it is in time ,tempo and very tricky .....but sorry it just does not appeal ....and I am sure he is very good at the damned thing .(well ,of course he is :roll: ..allow me one of my regular stupid moments :lol: )....and hey ...I like fast !!

But what ever ...I'll listen to his slower one now
