1999, Rounder

With the possible exception of the Beausoleil juggernaut, Bruce Daigrepont fronts the hottest Cajun band of the 21st Century. His album "Paradis" is one of the year's howlingest hotties of any genre. From a simple duet of accordion and T-fer (triangle) to zydeco breakdowns, Bruce covers the gamut of Louisiana French music. He makes the two steps, valses and old chanky chanks traditional, yet newly fresh. His acoustic sound adds a warmth to zydeco crunch downs like Clifton Chenier's "Ay Tete Fille" and "Zydeco Two Step." Daigrepont can croon sweetly or growl like Howling Wolf on the dark, swirly "Le Diable Est Lâché (The Devil Is Loose)." He wails with vibrato laced emotion on Amédé Ardoin's classic "Madame Etienne" and pounds out fais do do material a la "Ossun Two Step." My vote for the year's best from SW LA!—Mark Gresser
