I would love to see book suggestions based off music. I see a lot of posts/articles about "what to read next if you loved blank book," but what about "what to read next if you love jazz music" or "what to read next if you love zydeco music."I responded by searching to find out what Zydeco music is. Per Wikipedia: "Zydeco is a musical genre evolved in southwest Lousiana by French Creole speakers which blends blues, rhythm and blues, and music indigenous to the Louisiana Creoles and the Native people of Louisiana." Zydeco is not just all kinds of Cajun and Creole music though. There's a nice paragraph about the distinctions here.
Since then, I've been listening to Zydeco and enjoying it. "Bye Bye Kitty Zydeco" by Kathy Kallick is my favorite song so far. A quick word about listening to music online: I do most of my listening on Spotify, but I've been looking into Amazon Prime Music. Do you use Amazon Prime Music? I'd love to hear about your experience, what you like and don't like about it. Right now Amazon has put a bounty on it, meaning if my blog readers sign up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime Music I can get a special extra commission.
I'll tell you the reason Amazon Prime Music appeals to me over Spotify --- Amazon has Taylor Swift. I'm not a huge Swifty, but I like her stuff, and Spotify doesn't have it. I imagine Amazon has some other artists Spotify doesn't. I've signed up for a free trial, and if you're interested I'd be much obliged if you'd use my link above to sign up for one, too.
Now! It's time for the books! These three are stellar books that jump to mind when I hear Zydeco.
What do you think? Please share if you have a favorite zydeco song! Or a favorite book you think would fit on this list. And don't worry, Yivette, I'll get around to posting my list for jazz music, too.
