Album Review

The West Coast-based Zydeco Party Band call their 1999 CD release Mardi Gras Mambo, a song performed by everyone from the Neville Brothers to Zachary Richard and associated with the Carnival season in Louisiana. But this is not a Mardi Gras record. Rather, it is a collection of a little of this and that, drawing from diverse sources. There is a Bob Dylan tune, "On a Night Like This"; Clifton Chenier's "Hot Tamale Baby"; and "C'Mon if You're Comin'" by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. The group, led by accordionist Doug Legacy of the now-defunct Oingo Boingo band, romps through a number of good-time tunes, living up to their billing as a party band. This is good-time dance music. Legacy gets an assist from a roster of fine musicians, including Mark Shark on guitar, mandolin, and vocals; Rick Eckstein on bass; and Gary Ray on drums. The musicians draw on swamp pop, country, and Caribbean sounds, as well as zydeco, to provide some outstanding dance numbers such as "What You Gonna Do?" and "Bon Temps Roulez." Legacy contributes several songs himself, notably "Guiness and Gumbo" and "Early in the Morning." There's nothing like a party.
