Nathan Abshire and the Rayne-Bo Ramblers: One Step de Lacassine The s and 30s were a period of unequalled recording of the musical heritage of our country! The phonograph was finding its way into many homes, and people wanted to hear local music. With nothing more than the scant, vague promise that a furniture store, for example, could sell a few hundred copies of a local musician's songs, recording companies like Victor, Vocalion, Brunswick, Columbia, Bluebird, and Paramount sent engineers and recording equipment to outposts like New Orleans, San Antonio, Memphis, and Atlanta, or a bus ticket north to headquarters in Camden, New Jersey, Chicago, Richmond, Indiana, Grafton, Wisconsin, etc.
And the Library of Congress had a mandate to go everywhere and record the story of the music people made when it looked to some like the world was going to end in the Great Depression, dust storms at home, and a world war brewing abroad! It was in that kind of setting that the recordings above were made, and they constitute a windfall.
A fortunate, unique record of cultural history, with songs of joy and pride and common woes. A time of great music whose influence we cannot forget.
Alright already, back to the roots! Wayne Perry's astonishing fiddle! Segura Brothers tearing it up on accordion and vocal, from a December 16, session in New Orleans! Douglas Bellard, a black fiddler, was the playing partner of the great Amede Ardoin before Ardoin decided to go with fiddler Dennis McGee, a white man who could offer him more protection when playing before crowds in those racially segregated days.
Rumors and myths abound Here Douglas is accompanied by Kirby Riley, accordion. These songs by Bellard and Riley are extremely rare! See Recording Activity in New Orleans in the 'Twenties for an interesting rundown of the diversity captured at just one of the outposts recording music at that time.
Lomax made a field trip to southwest Louisiana inwhere he recorded Wayne Perry. He also recorded Edier Segura's playful tune, Joe Feraille, sung with a fiddle accompaniment, c'est tout!
It seems petit Joe Feraille is a hustler who trades his wife for a barrel of pecans, only to have her return to him soon after the bargain for a repeat con on another poor soul. He trades her again for corn, peanuts next time, and so on. C'est ca il a dit dans la chanson!
Oscar "Slim" Doucet, the accordion player, does two songs here with a man named Chester Hawkins on guitar: He recorded four songs: One step, not two, by the great, great Amede Ardoin, a black accordion player regarded as one of the fathers of the Creole music style, the roots of Zydeco!
It just goes to show how Cajun music in the 20s and 30s was a real melting pot of styles and influences.
For such an isolated group as the Cajuns, their musicians sure were tuned in to the popular music of the day. Clifford sings jazz-like scat on Continuez Sonner!
But you could still hear really old sounds dating far back even while these modern influences were at work. And when Cajun musicians took from the popular culture of the day, you could be sure they'd put their own stamp on it and give it a unique twist, making it their own.LOUIS ARMSTRONG.
