Rhythm & Blues
|rock, accordion, novelty, polka, pop: TDA's sixth release finds the San Francisco-based band once again powering through an electric set of original, squeezebox-fueled rock and pop songs. The new CD is (of course) infused with TDA's easygoing humor and wry take on the world with (gasp!) even a bit of heartwarming sentiment stirred into the eclectic musical melting pot. "Lawnball" also finds the band breaking out of the ''all accordions, all the time" mode with a few special guest spots: Bay Area artists lending a hand include Nik Phelps (trumpet) and Jim Rothermel (clarinet). While accordions are still undeniably the name of the game on "Lawnball," the additional instruments are a happy addition to the sonic mix; bandleader Paul Rogers couldn't resist sprinkling in some piano and acoustic guitar as well. Classic rockers Edgar Winter and Led Zeppelin get the nod this time around for TDA's twisted cover treatment, with a blistering version of Winter's "Frankenstein" and a wailing medley of Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" and "Black Dog" rounding out the record. The Zeppelin medley features new band member Susie Davis on lead vocals. She is a veteran of the rock arenas, with an impressive list of major tours to her credit, including stints with Sheila E, Mick Jagger, Daryl Hall, Pat Benatar and Melissa Etheridge. TDA also welcomes vocalist/accordionist Carri Abrahms into the fold on "Lawnball." Her credits include the San Francisco Symphony Choir as well as a tour of duty with San Francisco-based band Rosin Coven. TDA veterans Suzanne Garramone (accordion, vocals), Lewis Wallace (bass guitar) and Bill Schwartz (drums) complete the package.
