Follow-up to the interview with Corey Ledey


How is it going?

I hope you were listening today and were curious about Corey Ledet and it led you here. 

I had such a good time listening to Corey talk about his projects and discoveries.  The enthusiasism and excitement, especially about the connection to the traditional jazz musician Bunk Johnson.  Connection is too weak a word, more like a musical bridge, between the members of the Ledet family, but also a bridge between these musical styles.  If these folks played together, then maybe a recording exists or a story about the origins of a song or songs.  The possibilities are vast and I could hear it in Corey's  telling of his discovery.  I made two playlists so you could continue to check out Corey Ledet. 

Here is a Spotify playlist with Corey and some of his influences.

Also I have created a Youtube playlist so you  can check out Corey and some the zydeco greats live.  Be careful not to get lost in the awesomeness!

Thanks for listening to WWOZ!
