Clifton Chenier - King of Zydeco

Clifton Chenier - King of Zydeco
This collection of 15 accordion arrangements of tunes by Clifton Chenier (1925-1987) clearly demonstrates why he is known as the undisputed King of Zydeco music. Written for the piano accordion as opposed to the Cajun button accordion, all of the selections in this book are transcribed from Chenier's 1965-1987 recordings on Arhoolie Records. The featured tunes are: "Ain't No Need of Cryin'" "Tu le Ton Son Ton," "I'm Coming Home," "Jole Blonde," "Calinda," "Louisiana Two-Step," "Ay, Ai, Ai," "Louisiana Blues," "Black Gal," "Big Momou," "I'm on the Wonder," "Zydeco Cha Cha," "I'm a Hog for You," "Zydeco et Pas Sale," and "Black Snake Blues." Dix Bruce con- tributes a fine essay on the colorful life of Clifton Chenier. A delightful companion CD recording is available in the spirit of Chenier's signature cry- "Laissez les bon ton roulet!" (Let the good times role!) *** Note: 10 songs out of 15 are on the cd, 96616CD Clifton Chenier "60 Minutes with the King of Zydeco." The other 5 songs are transcribed from other Arhooolie CDs by Clifton Chenier.
