CD Reviews

Savoy-Doucet doesn't just cover standards; they write them.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If the only good song on this album was "Two Step d'Amede", it would still be a classic. Marc Savoy's tribute to the late Amede d'Ardoin has been recorded by every Cajun and Zydeco accordionist on Earth by now, but that doesn't take anything away from the original recording here; it's as irrepressible as it was the day it was written.The rest of the songs are Cajun standards (well, the Savoys are credited with writing "Lapin Dans Son Nique", but it's pretty much "Rolling Pin" with new lyrics.) Michael Doucet sings "Flammes d'Enfer" as if he's afraid his soul is beyond praying for, and Marc Savoy's accordion is right there with him. "Ton Papa M'a Jete Dehors" is a complete turnaround, though - as if the only reason he cares that his girl's dad threw him out is that he knows she'll come comfort him.Ann Savoy sings most of the rest of these songs - you wouldn't think to look at her that she knew anything about "getting drunk like a big pig," as one song says, but put the song on and she'll make you believe it. And she's just as fine with silly stuff like "Diggy Liggy Lo" or slow ones like "The Kaplan Waltz".Michael Doucet doesn't do as much flashy fiddling as he does with his other band, Beausoleil - except for "Queue de Tortue", he's comfortable letting Marc Savoy's accordion dominate, and it all sounds great. You should buy this album right now."
