Emes is the Yiddish word for truth. Truth is hard to find.

I remember, it must have been around 1993, that I saw that C.J. Chenier was going to play in some bar in Chicago. I was pretty excited, because I had just discovered Zydeco and fell in love with it. I called up the bar to see if there were any tickets left and while talking to the guy I mentioned how excited I was to see Clifton Chenier, "The King of Zydeco". Imagine my embarrassment when the guy told me that Clifton died about six years back, and this was his son CJ's show, who was a sax player.
Anyway, here is a clip of "The King of the Bayou" doing his thing.
