Description Publisher
Zydeco Zephyr combines elements of zydeco and bluegrass. Zydeco is a combination of many styles including Cajun, blues, and rock, and is known for its use of accordion, fiddle, and washboard. The first section of Zydeco Zephyr is influenced by doo-wop, a style zydeco musician Clifton Chenier used in his songs. The cellos introduce the second section with a "train" groove in m. 27. A solo section offers students the opportunity to improvise using a D mixolydian mode (D, E, F#, G, A, B, C, D), and a sample solo is provided. This piece uses straight eighths (no swing!) and should be performed with a great deal of energy. Who knows, you may just make people in the audience get up and dance! Suggested listening: Clifton Chenier, King of the Bayous on Arhoolie Records.
