The Louisiana musician sings and solos his way through a set that soaks rootsy funk, blues, rockabilly, and country in the stylistically rich mud of the bayou and infuses it with a healthy dose of Cajun spice. The country-laced rock & roll of "Why Are People Like That" features some stinging guitar picking, while his vocals on the Little Feat-influenced "Can't Do One More Two Step" compare favorably with those of that band's fabled guitarist and singer, Lowell George.
