CAJUN ACCORDION DISCUSSION GROUP
anyone heard steve rileys new cd yet? if so, does it have more non cajun songs rather than more cajun songs?
You can get an idea on this link.
(It also seems to include a DVD, but I don't think it's my favorite Steve Riley-CD)
Saw Riley this past year during Mardi Gras week in LA(I forget where, Willy drove). He's still laying down semi-Cajun style but he still has a poppy edge. Not my favorite style, but still a nice guy
The CD is killer, pure and simple. As a bonus, the DVD shows his playing close up.
IMHO his is a master player and performer. On the cruise, we got to see him jam with Geno. Hearing and seeing him play John Delafose songs while Geno played drums was priceless.
