Join the Daddy Squeeze Trio (Dan Newton-accordion, Bob Ekstrand-guitar,
Lewis-bass) for some bluesy jug-band and swing tunes, with a few surprises thrown in for fun.
The Trio takes you back to Memphis, circa 1930, with their
depression-era hokum specialties. The trio kicks off in high spirits
with an up-tempo
rendition of the Bill Broonzy chestnut Wild About My Lovin’. Classics
from Josh White
(One Meatball), Sonny Terry (Diggin’ My Potatoes), Bo Carter (Whiskey
and Gin), Gus
Cannon (You May Leave), and Duck Baker (the hilarious New Righteous
Blues) will have
you ready to strut your stuff at the local speakeasy. And just to add
to the fun,
there’s also some Western Swing (Deep Ellum Blues), an early Count
(Kansas City Shout), a French Musette (Volupta), and a Mambo (Patricia).
Bob gets to
show off his finger-picking chops on a crazy medley of transportation-themed
(Last Steam Engine Train/ Freight Train/ Caravan).
This CD was recorded “live” in a home studio, and captures the real feel of a Daddy Squeeze Trio performance. It sounds so real, you may think the guys are actually in the room with you!
