Zydeco is a rhythmic party/dance music that resulted from the intermingling of traditional Cajun music, blues, and early (1950s/'60s) R&B. One of its most popular and versatile practitioners is the joyfully boisterous accordionist and singer Buckwheat Zydeco. On this YA-YA session (recorded in 1985), Buckwheat spices his chunky Louisiana stew with a strong infusion of old-school funky, strutting Memphis- and Muscle Shoals-style R&B (think Solomon Burke, Aretha Franklin, and Wilson Pickett).
