Clifton Chenier - King of Zydeco


Clifton Chenier - King of Zydeco (Intermediate)

by Clifton Chenier transcribed by Gary Dahl

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 contributes a fine essay on the colorful life of Clifton Chenier. *** Note: 10 songs out of 15 are on the Arhoolie CD, Clifton Chenier "60 Minutes with the King of Zydeco." The other 5 songs are transcribed from other Arhooolie CDs by Clifton Chenier. "
