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. Dix Bruce con- tributes a fine essay on the colorful life of Clifton Chenier. A de- lightful companion CD recording is available in the spirit of Chenier's signature cry- "Laissez les bon ton roulet!" (Let the good times role!) *** Note: 10 songs out of 15 are on the cd, 96616CD Clifton Chenier "60 Minutes with the King of Zydeco." The other 5 songs are transcribed from other Arhooolie CDs by Clifton Chenier.
