11 MP3 Songs
BLUES: Jazzy Blues, WORLD: Acadian

South Louisiana has always been known for it’s rich heritage of Jazz, Blues and
Zydeco music. People from all over the world flock to New Orleans to get a taste
of the rich food and sounds that they associate with “Fat City.” Selwyn Cooper has
worn out 3 passports taking the sounds of the deep south to people from
Coast to Coast tours of the United States and has expanded his travels to Canada,
Turkey, Africa, Sweden,French, Australia, Germany and Italy. This guitar virtuoso of
Jazz,Blues and Zydeco has contributed to 2 Grammy Award winning CD’s.
The first was for 100%Zydeco in 1983 and again in 1984 Turning Point with Buckwheat
Zydeco. We all hit the jackpot when he made the first LA. Lottery commercial and feel
a little closer to him since his Close-Up toothpaste ads on television
and radio with Rockin Dopsie.

At Jazz fest in New Orleans 2005, he and Soul
Diva, Carol Fran schooled up the Critics Choice
Award. We are still tracking his history but to date
we can count 12 appearances at N.O. Jazz fest
so far and then jazz fest all over the country and
even the world. We may as well throw in The World
Fair in New Orleans’ while we are at it!

In 1987, he was heard in the soundtrack of “The
Big Easy” with Buckwheat Zydeco deemed by the
New York Times as one of the best 10 records of the
year. December of 1992 in “Delta Heat” when Mickey
Rourke entered the bar in the middle of the movie, you
saw and heard Selwyn wailing on the guitar with Rockin
Dopsies’ band.
