1985
Joseph Vernon Turner Jr., known to the Zydeco, Southern Soul, and Blues Nation as “Big Joe Turner” (due to his 6'2", 300+ lbs stature) and “The Boss of the Blues” was died on Sunday, November 24, 1985 in Inglewood, California of heart failure at the age of 74. Big Joe Turner was an American "blues shouter" (a blues-music singer capable of singing unamplified with a band) and is credited with and recognized as the first person to transform the “Blues” into a new musical genre called “Rock & Roll.” His signature songs “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” “Flip, Flop and Fly” and “Corrine, Corrina,” became the foundations in which Rock & Roll was built. As Muddy Waters eloquently sang in his anthemic song, “The Blues Had a Baby and They Named It Rock and Roll.” Big Joe Turner was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, two years after death.

    Toggle Content What is Zydeco?
    Zydeco Music is a unique form of musical expression that originated in rural southwest Louisiana. Locally known as "la la" music, Zydeco music was formed and forged in a time best forgotten--a time when African-Americans had to struggle in the fields from sunup to sundown as sharecroppers so that their children might reap a better life.

    It was these backbreaking hard times that help to define one of the most vibrant and successful musical traditions in the world. The phrase "Zydeco sont pas sale'" means "The snapbeans are not Salty" in Creole French, and the music draws upon French, Creole, West African, Cajun, Caribbean, and R & B musical traditions. Zydeco Music is characterized by the use of the accordion, spoons, scrubboard, fiddle and triangle.
