Roland's V Accordion -- a wild dream of its founder since 1967 -- finally saw the light of day in 2004. Now, the latest models (including one with built-in speakers so you can, you know, hear the accordion when you play) are making waves. They were on display at the Musikmesse music industry convention in Frankfurt, Germany, which just wrapped up yesterday, according to Jazz News.
I wish Roland would send us a few demo models to check out. Could there be a more appropriate band to spread the word?
