Joe Mooney Born 03/14/1911 (Paterson, NJ) Died 05/12/1975 (Fort Lauderdale, FL) For a period of time, Joe Mooney was a well-known jazz accordionist – which is definitely a small field – but he had a lengthy and a rather episodic career.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Joe Mooney personally and my wife and I spent many hours enjoying his extraordinary talent on Hammond. He was working in an after hours spot on the 79th st causeway in Miami and we would stop by after our gig, on our way home. My favorite was Polka dots and Moonbeams and of course Nina Never Knew. My wife knew him from NY where she played for years. He was indeed one of a kind.

    YES!!! Joe Mooney is unique man. I love him from "Nina never knew" where he play on Hammond organ. Also I very like this kind of vintage electro organ. No synthesizers can repeat Hammond's sound at all precisely. I have only 1 album (from Soulseek) with Joe Moony playin accordion (almost all songs). Want Hammond+Joe Mooney...

    I have two Joe Mooney CDs I got from a jazz label in the UK. Plus the songs that got put on the Atom Ertugen Cabaret anthology. I love Mooney's voice, and I am amazed at how cool he makes the accordion.
