French musette accordion (with its very strong Italian roots) was, till very recently a grossly neglected splendor of 20th century urban music. The phenomenal Gus Viseur played musette with the best besides helping to create the accordion-jazz style called manouche. There's a generous selection of fine music on the Viseur collection (which includes other musicians playing his pieces). Gorgeous music, wonderful mastering, fine notes.
