Great list, Adrian, thanks! Saw Dick Contino's last Milwaukee Summerfest show, still hefting that giant Petosa at 82, 83 (?). Little known fact that he played a lot of hot jazz as well as traditional and pop tunes, great player....

For contemporary accordion masters look no further than the extraordinary Michael Bridge. Michael has several videos on line and he also
has two recordings which are available on spotify. HIs rendition of Moon River is heart-breaking, very emotional.

The second selection is fantastic. Will have to watch the whole thing..when i finish practicing.
Spotify has many accordion recordings and if your public library subscribes to Hoopla the accordion recordings is massive.
