Accordion In Hi-Fi - Jo Ann Castle

Sway
Accordion In Hi-Fi
Jo Ann Castle
Forum SF 9007
1959

From the back cover: Her musical talent has won her appearances on television with Ina Ray Hutton, Spike Jones and Arthur Godfrey. On the night club circuit, she has starred in such important showplaces as Ciro's and the Plymouth House in Los Angeles and at the Fremont Hotel in Las Vagas where she was backed by her own rhythm group of guitar, bass and drums. In addition to that, she composes many of her own tunes and arranges everything she plays. All this musical versatility, for those who are interested in this kind of information, is wrapped up in a tall, beautiful, blue-eyed blonde. What more could anyone ask.

Sparkling space age accordion set made notable by the clean, simple small combo arrangements which nicely blend Castle's playing with her session musicians efforts to create a complete group effort.
