Album Notes
If you recognize the title of the historic Max Fleischer cartoon from which this album's title was taken, you'll understand the charm and joy of Cafe Accordion Orchestra - an "old-school" combo that plays from the heart.

Look elsewhere if you want trendy, hip, up-to-date takes on classic songs. But if you're looking for inspired performances of vintage swing, passionate Finnish tangos and bouncy cumbias, "Dancing on the Moon" will become one of your favorites.

Of "Dancing on the Moon", the Minnesota Daily said "With a somewhat unconventional approach to the craft, and the honest talent to make it all work, CAO proves that bringing back the past doesn't have to be done in an over-exposed, commercial way. Forget all those hip new swing bands with their zoot suits and martinis; CAO is the real deal."

Accordion Players News said "Two words come to mind as I listen to Dancing on the Moon by CAPA member Dan Newton's Café Accordion Orchestra: mellow and hip."

Dancing On the Moon
I purchased this album for the waltz, "Amor del Bajo Corrales". Great waltz! CD arrived promptly in perfect condition.

HEY accordion lovers...this is great. This is music from a kinder, gentler time.


Every thing you could want in an accordian orchestra and more.
There isn't anything I don't like about this CD. The variations in style that show the full range of expression by which the accordian has found its voice around the world are here -- gloriously. I am very jealous of anyone who lives in St. Paul ( or Minneapolis)and can hear this live. I think this should come with optional changes of clothing to set the perfect mood for each song.

great Italian music makes me want to go back to Italy
this CD is very good representation of Italian music, we heard much of this type of music while traveling thru Italy.

Derek Emerson

A flawless CD!
I love the accordion (may God help me) and this CD is a good example of why. A wide range of styles mixed with the accordion backing and be backed by other instruments makes for a great sound. Great for the accordion fanatic or as a way to introduce someone to the joys of accordion music.

I Love It!
This is my second Cafe Accordion Orchestra CD and they're still tops with me. This album melts away the cares of the day and makes you want to dance on the moon (well, maybe dance under the moon!) "Dancing on the Moon" is happiness and sophistication filtered through the medium of music and it is worth its weight in gold, as far as I'm concerned. My favorite tunes are "Let's Cumbia" and the title track.


This CD was a request from my 15 yr old ?!
Yes, my 15 yr. old heard this CD on TV and had to have it. A wonderful blend of Accordion music.

Laura Cox

This CD is amazing! A must have for accordion lovers. Every song is perfectly performed and will stick in your head for days! Cafe Accordion Orchestra is the best you will find!

Christmas gift/ great
My husband received this CD for Christmas. He was in the accordion business many years ago. He has early stage alzheimers but loves accordion music. He is very enthusiastic about this CD. Thank you for good memories.
