Zydeco Soulchild

Leon Chavis has bold ambitions: He wants to change the way you listen, understand and dance to Zydeco music. For Leon Chavis and the Zydeco Flames, this push forward means looking back and re-examining, mastering, understanding the roots of Zydeco Music and Creole culture. Chavis' confidence shines through on this disc, which features all originals except an up-temp reworking of a Motown classic that'll even have Smokey Robinson saying, "Ooh Baby Baby!"

The Champ Is Here

In 1999, Muhamma Ali was crowned Sportsman of the Century by Sports Illustrated. Ali retired the same year Leon Chavis was born, but that hasn't stopped him from being fascinated with "The Champ." Inspired by Ali, Chavis has punched his way to the top of the Zydeco world. A main event in the Zydeco club, trailride and radio scene, Chavis has retired "Zydeco Soul Child," his old nickname, with a new, bold proclamation... "The Champ Is Here!"
