Cafe Accordion Orchestra will release Berets and Bongos on September 7, 2010 at the Varsity theater in Minneapolis MN. Doors are at 7pm tickets are $10. I am very excited about this release! From the CAO website——-Dan Newtons Cafe Accordion Orchestra is pleased to announce the release of their new album Berets and Bongos. CAOs eighth album is their most adventurous effort, featuring 14 tunes from 9 countries and vocals in 6 languages. Berets and Bongos also reunites CAO with Finnish-American songbird Diane Jarvi, who graces 3 tracks with her stunning voice. As the title suggests, there is plenty of that familiar French flair, plus Latin heat, Gypsy and swing rhythms, and of course great bongo playing! ——–I played guitar, banjo, oud and did the vocals for an Armenian tune as well. Get to the release or order a copy from CD Baby, I hope that you will love it, learn from it and dance to it!
