Bruce Daigrepont is proud of his Cajun/French heritage and he translates this pride into what he does. He respects the traditions yet is not bound by them; rather, he uses his strength to build and expand existing parameters. His transitions on Paradis are seamless, without sounding artificially polished. He has done a stellar job not only as musician, but also as the producer turning out this disc. One of the highlights is the treatment he gives to the hauntingly beautiful “La Voix du Passé (The Voice of the Past).” This song has the potential to become a standard in Cajun music (as do a couple of others here). He also wrote nine of the 13 songs. Pick this one up.
