Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
If it's sheer musical power and blinding tempos you seek, then as far as zydeco goes, no one drives as hard or whips up a dance floor quicker than accordionist Beau Jocque and his band, the aptly named Zydeco Hi-Rollers. A relative newcomer to the south Louisiana music scene, Beau Jocque has developed a style that includes lots of heavy, funky bass, shown here in tunes like "'Gardez donc! (Look at That!)" and "Comin' In." Although it's the only cover on this disc, the selection of Clifton Chenier's "Do Right Sometime" was a sweet choice. --Robert Baird

"Once again I have to say, if you want good zydeco dance music, this CD is a must have. You'll play it over and over again while enjoying every minute of it. This artist definately deserves recognition. Young or old I assure you, you will not regret this purchase. This is Zydeco Music at its finest."
