It's not a stretch of the truth to say that Beau Jocque invented the contemporary zydeco sound. He was not only the most popular zydeco star in Louisiana and Texas in the 1990's, but an unmistakable voice whose presence and no-holds-barred energy won him fans around the world. Combining the traditional music of his Creole heritage with funk and R&B, Beau Jocque created music that was propulsive, soulful and deep. Here are the very best of his Rounder recordings, including the original version of his hit, 'Give Him Cornbread.' With extensive notes by producer Scott Billington 24 bit digital remastering from original digital sources.
