Editorial Reviews

Product Description

'Jackpot!' combines soulful original tunes, inspired playing and singing, and the trademark exuberance that's made him the world's best-loved zydeco artist, and has earned Buckwheat Zydeco the sobriquet "the world's greatest party band." There's plenty of Buckwheat's signature accordion, and for the first time ever Buck specifically features his soulful mastery of the horizontal keyboard on a three-song Hammond B3 'Encore featuring Organic Buckwheat'. Tomorrow. 2005.

Review

A master accordionist, but his first love is the Hammond B-3, which he displays to great effect on "Jackpot!" -- The New Yorker 5/25/05

Buck has never sounded better than he does on Jackpot! Buck has tapped into the passionate party vibe. -- Jambase.com 6/7/05

Buck has never sounded betterFrom beginning to end, Buck throws it down, delivering the ultimate nonstop party ride. -- Offbeat Magazine June 2005

Everybody's a winner as Buckwheat Zydeco hits the "Jackpot!" (A) bouncy blast of good-time shuffles and boogie-woogie tunes. B+ -- Philadelphia Daily News/Knight Ridder 6/7/05

The band's back on track with their first studio album in eight years. Rejuvenated, they let the good times roll. -- Providence Journal 6/2/05

I pre-ordered the CD after catching Buck live in NYC thinking it would be a decent album. I was wrong. This is a great album and a must buy for long summer car trips, sweaty dance parties and to remind oneself that not all music comes artificially flavored. Must buy.

First, just cue up the 11th cut- Buck's Going Uptown. Invoking the late great Jimmy Smith at the start, Buck just rips the Hammond B-3 on an up-tempo funky soul infused jam. Is there any better summer music than this? Does anyone else play this stuff anymore? The only problem is the song only clocks in at 6:45. Can we have a real Jimmy Smith half-side version next time? By the way, very tasty guitar solo on this one.

After that gets you in the mood, go back to the album opener for some Grade A Prime zydeco. No clunkers here, every cut is great. Standouts for me are track 6 and 9 as well as the opener. Of course, the last three tracks with Buck on the Hammond are superb.

This is a wonderful album.

I defy you to not wanna dance, or for you to stay in an unhappy mood while this Gumbo of Delightful sound stirs the pot. Give this one a listen.
