Synopsis

Amazon.com
Michael Doucet is best known as the leader of Beausoleil, the finest progressive-Cajun band anywhere, but he also plays with the Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band, a drummer-less traditional Cajun trio featuring button accordionist Marc Savoy and his wife, singer-guitarist Ann Saboy. This album was recorded at the Birchmere in Virginia, Ashkenaz in Berkeley, and Synod Hall in Pittsburgh, and it's a delightful example of the trio's ability to summon the lyrical harmonies out of Cajun music's past. On the uptempo tunes, Marc Savoy often shouts, "Come on, Doucet!" and the fiddler responds with ever faster and more intricate improvisations. --Geoffrey Himes

If you love Cajun, then this is for YOU
Craig H. Reinhardt | Sarasota Florida | 09/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll try to be brief. Most people I know either really like or really can't stand Cajun. I have not found a lot of middle ground.
ME ? I love it. It sings, it's a trip all it's own. If you like Cajun as I do then you will love this. Ann Savoy is great, The guys know their music. Really can't say more. Buy this album."
