Hardie K. has a review of Cedric Watson and Bijou Créole‘s CD L’Ésprit Creole in his world music blog, Thailand to Timbuktu to La Paz.  It’s from the point of view of someone not part of the Louisiana music scene, but obviously well versed in the international music scene.  He’s got good things to say.  His main point is that this group may be poised to go to the big time, an arena that zydeco hasn’t occupied since Clifton Chenier’s death.   Buckwheat Zydeco is close, touring more than he’s at home in Louisiana, but he’s got a good point.
