Silver Jubilee: Best of Zachary Richard 1973-1998

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
If one man's music could be said to reflect all the current blends and flavors of today's Cajun music, Zachary Richard would be that man. Compared to Rolling Stone Mick Jagger for his boundary-busting musicality "Johnny Danser" and to William Faulkner for his detailed, evocative writing about the land of his birth "Sunset on Louisianne", Richard has made a quarter-century-plus career out of the dualities of Louisiana music. His is a tradition written in both English and French, celebrating the dance and mourning the separations of life. SILVER JUBILEE is a great place to meet the man, offering the dark narrative "Six Bullets in Satan," a long-lost 1972 recording from ...

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
If one man's music could be said to reflect all the current blends and flavors of today's Cajun music, Zachary Richard would be that man. Compared to Rolling Stone Mick Jagger for his boundary-busting musicality "Johnny Danser" and to William Faulkner for his detailed, evocative writing about the land of his birth "Sunset on Louisianne", Richard has made a quarter-century-plus career out of the dualities of Louisiana music. His is a tradition written in both English and French, celebrating the dance and mourning the separations of life. SILVER JUBILEE is a great place to meet the man, offering the dark narrative "Six Bullets in Satan," a long-lost 1972 recording from Richard's first, unreleased album, and a wide-ranging selection from his 13 other albums. Highlights include the haunting "Cap Enrage"; "Crawfish," a rollicking fusion of Cajun with country dance; "Joe Pitre," a playful zydeco tune; and the somber ballad "Dans Le Nord Canadien," an homage to Acadie's Canadian roots. Richard, who has performed in Quebec and Paris as much as in his native Bayou State, brings it all back home with his classic statement of Cajun pride, "Ma Louisianne."
All Music Guide - Philip Van Vleck
Music fans who enjoy Cajun music in general, and the work of Zachary Richard in particular, will find that this retrospective is a very musical, quite effective summary of his career to date. Richard is without question one of the most distinctive and significant artists Acadien music has ever produced. The CD features 19 songs, all either Richard originals or his arrangements of traditional material like "Travailler C'est Trop Dur" and "Bon Temps Rouler." Richard can get down on that two-step boogie as proficiently as anyone -- just listen to "Filé Gumbo," "Joe Pitre," "Crawfish," "Johnny Danser," and his definitive rendition of "Who Stole My Monkey" a Richard original. His more pop-oriented persona -- no doubt the result of his extended sojourns in Quebec -- is well represented by "Cap Enragé" and "Dans la Nord Canadien," and his fancy for blues and R&B is typified by songs like "La Berçeuse Créole" and "Everytime." Richard is everything you'd expect from a Cajun artist, but he's also pursued music much further afield than any other Acadien musician of his generation. Silver Jubilee does an especially good job of showcasing the range of music Richard has performed in the past quarter century.
