Zing Zang Zo

Bill Russell (2007)

Ken's Role: Producer

Recorded in Toronto, Ontario, and in Crowley, Louisiana, Zing zang zo !! is a compilation of songs and singing games based in the French and Créole traditions of Louisiana, where BILL grew up. Cajun musicians Marc Savoy on accordion and Michael Doucet “dit Beausoleil” on fiddle and young singers from the Blanchet School add the seasonings that bring to life the music of the bayou state. Toronto’s Soozi Schlanger (aka “Swamperella”) helps with BILL’s version of Jolie Blon’ a Cajun favourite. Lyrics and translations included, along with directions for the traditional singing games.
