AllMusic Review by

This is a delightful sampler of contemporary Cajun recording artists. From the opening track here, Jo-El Sonnier's spirited version of "Jambalaya," things are off and running on a two-step tour of the bayous. Highlights include Eddie LeJeune's take on the ageless "Jolie Blon," Courtney Granger's graceful "Since the Age of Fifteen," and David Doucet's atmospheric "French Blues." Fiddles and accordions abound.
