Corey Ledet and His Zydeco Band - Standing on Faith

.
Ledet demonstrates a talent for more than just zydeco here and does it from the get-go; after opening the album with a twisted bit of Prince-like funk to introduce himself in the appropriately-titled "Intro" he immediately follows with the zydeco pop of "Push Me Away" and then a jazzy instrumental interpretation of the Michael Jackson/Paul Anka co-write "Love Never Felt So Good."

The album's title cut is more pop zydeco with a solid dance groove and lyrics that are sing-along friendly but "Take Me There," a Ledet co-write, is jazzy pop devoid of zydeco flavor.

There's even a reggae/zydeco/pop mash-up to be had in "A Good Day," and closing number "Street Light," while using the accordion as the lead instrument, is pop with hints of hip-hop and jazz. Zydeco is best appreciated when played live; it is meant to be danced to.

And while Ledet and company color outside the lines here everything, regardless of description, has a groove and you can bet that the band's live shows provide a raucous good time. In the meantime Standing on Faith will do quite nicely. Get your copy here
