Even with his recent successes with Cajun-country crossover hits in Nashville, Jo-El Sonnier stays committed to his Cajun roots. This album is a tribute to his early inspirations--half of the songs here are by Cajun legend Iry LeJeune (when Jo-El was only ten years old he sat in with LeJeune's band); plus more by Austin Pitre, Lawrence Walker, and Jo-El's arrangements of traditional tunes. Michael Doucet of Beausoleil plays fiddle and wrote the liner notes.
