AccNoir-2010-08-18, Steve Jordan, ¡Vive!

Steve (Estevan) Jordan (1939-2010). He was not the Hendrix of the accordion, he was the Steve Jordan of the accordion. Like no one else. (And he didn't o.d. after only three albums either.)

[Please note: The 2010 Accordion Noir Festival is in two weeks! From Sept. 18-25, with squeezy weirdness all week! Check for more info. Pardon this interruption in our regularly scheduled notes.]
