60 Minutes with the King Of Zydeco

60 Minutes with the King Of Zydeco

Chris Strachwitz, founder of Arhoolie Records, described Clifton Chenier this way: “We're not jiving when we call Clifton Chenier the greatest accordion player ever to come out of the Zydeco tradition—but even that grandiose statement misses the point. To a remarkable extent, Clifton Chenier invented the modern Zydeco style; to this day there are a whole slew of Louisiana bands making decent money playing Clifton's songs in Clifton's style. He is one-of-a-kind—a genius musician, a unique, remarkable, human being.” This album includes 15 of Chenier’s best-sellers from the archives of Arhoolie Records.
