Well known musician Jon Hammond has now found the serial number of his stolen accordion, a Giulietti Classic model 127 Serial No. 14258.

This accordion was stolen from his mother’s house in Boston, MA in 1976. Picture right of Jon Hammond circa 1976, playing the stolen accordion.

At the time, John was attending Berklee College of Music and this accordion has a history, being an accordion of the great pioneer USA accordionist John Molinari.

Like my friend Dick Contino the great accordionist star once told me: “When I break out the accordion it’s like saying hello to an old friend!” Here I’m playing a blues with my custom built Excelsior accordion made by hand by the good folks at Excelsior Accordions & Pigini in Castelfidardo Italy – I have electronics on this instrument, but what you hear here is the pure sound of the high quality steel reeds, I really love this instrument. Mostly I keep it at home because the airlines can be a little rough on the instruments, I was lucky to get it home in one piece from Italy. Always a pleasure to play, enjoy folks, Jon Hammond Band *Note: for those of you who don’t know, musicians use the term “Wood Shedding” for practicing at home. When a musician says he or she is shedding, that usually means they are home or in a hotel somewhere practicing with their instrument – JH
