AccNoir 2010-08-18


From ten years ago, here’s episode 192 of CFRO’s weekly Accordion Noir radio program — our Estevan Jordan memorial episode.  At its original online home, it achieved a total of some 6831 listens, but we know that at its new, forever home at the Internet Archive — where you can listen to it today and going forward! — the digits will continue marching onward.  Here’s its playlist:

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.)
