'Dan Newton is the king of variety on the accordion. Finally he goes solo and we get to hear every nuance of his fingers on the buttons and keys. This guy gives us some great foot-stomping tunes on his long overdue roots oriented project.' -Mary Flower 2008 and 2012 Blues Music Award Nominee 2000 and 2002 Finalist at National Fingerpicking Guitar Championship 2011 Muddy Award Recipient from Cascade Blues Assn. For 'Acoustic Guitar' Sustaining a solo accordion record, even when also an accomplished blues singer, is not easy. But Dan Newton does a good job on "Daddy Squeeze Solo," mixing traditional tunes with original numbers steeped in tradition, happily raiding the songbooks of everyone from David Bromberg to Spanky & Our Gang. The disc has a classic West Bank feel from the outset, with cool opener "Last Hot Day of the Summer" sounding like a rewrite of the Koerner, Ray & Glover favorite "Black Dog." Newton celebrates the album's release, ironically, with a show at a used record shop. (3 p.m. Sun., Hymie's Vintage Records, 3820 E. Lake St., Mpls. Free.)
