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 Cheniers 1965-1987 recordings on Arhoolie Records. The featured tunes are: Aint No Need of Cryin; Tu le Ton Son Ton; Im Coming Home; Jole Blonde; Calinda; Louisiana Two Step; Ay, Ai, Ai; Louisiana Blues; Black Gal; Big Momou; Im on the Wonder; Zydeco Cha Cha; Im a Hog for You; Zydeco et Pas Sale; and Black Snake Blues. Dix Bruce contributes a fine essay on the colorful life of Clifton Chenier. A delightful companion CD recording is available in the spirit of Cheniers 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.
