Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic

Zydeco (Contemporary)

Review By Lola Love (The Zydeco Lady)

Andre Thierry is Zydeco musician with scary amazing talent. While Andre Thierry and Zydeco Magic have become the premier Zydeco band in California, they have remained virtually unknown to the majority of the Zydeco Nation…until now! The group’s latest CD project “Are You Ready To Learn” is a clear departure from his earlier CD project. Andre was schooled in the tradition of Clifton Chenier, often drawing direct comparisons to the late Kind of Zydeco Music. This has been a blessing and a hindrance in terms of creative musical development. “Are You Ready To Learn” holds on to the foundation laid by Clifton Chenier, but brings a modern creative twist to the Zydeco Nation. This is a HOT Zydeco 13 track CD and we expect more great things from Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic!

1) 3:19 “Are You Ready To Learn”- HOT TRACK - Title Zydeco Track! Hot Zydeco with hot accordion playing and a great dance track!

2) 3:37 “Swingin’ On A Vine” – HOT TRACK- This a smooth Zydeco dance Track. Watch out for this one.

3) 3:57 “Come and Get A Dance” – HOT TRACK- - Love this Zydeco Track. This song is hot! Great for rotation play and intro!

4) 3:26 “Better Man” HOT TRACK- Lovely mid-tempo Zydeco Waltz. Love to 2 step close quarters, this song is for you!

5) 4:19 “My Heart Won’t Let You Go” – HOT TRACK- CD SLEEPER This Zydeco Track is a surprise! Smooth track! A well rounded full track.

6) 3:45 “No Good Woman” – HOT TRACK- CD SLEEPER The fact that Zydeco slow jam can stand with dance tracks is a testament to the talent of Andre Thierry. LOVE THIS TRACK!!! THIS IS A CLASSIC!

7) 3:23 “This Not Goodbye”- HOT TRACK – Great Closing Song! Outstanding Accordion play.

8) 4:04 “Steppin’ Ahead” – HOT TRACK- CD SLEEPER Hot Zydeco Blues Track!

9) 3:44 “Let Me Get Down” – HOT TRACK- CD SLEEPER Uptempo Zydeco Track! The Accordion play is HOT HOT HOT!

10) 3:02 “You Put A Spell On Me” Lovely Waltz done only like Andre Thierry Can Do.

11) 3:39 “You’ve Go Me Cryin (remix)” – HOT TRACK- CD SLEEPER This was a great track in its original form. This takes a great song to another level!

12) 3:26 “Day By Day” – Zydeco done in a traditional style. No drums, no lead, no baseline, just an accordion and scrubboard!

13) 4:03 “Let’s Do It Again” – Classic cover well done by Andre Thierry. Great Closer Track.
