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."
