Octa Clark Interview

Octa came to the Savoy Music Center jam session consistently for years. He was a gentle character with a twinkle in his eye. His accordion style was so strong and clean and old style-the way I like it. I went with Les Blank and Chris Strachwitz to his house to interview him on his front porch in Judice. This visit and part of the interview appears in Les’ film “Marc and Ann.”
