Rock and Reel

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Marty Lipp
Forget Molson and hockey, this is Canada's great new export. The nine-member ensemble La Bottine Souriante ("The Smiling Booty") hails from Quebec and plays a rousing version of French-Canadian roots music. The tunes sound like close cousins to Irish music, but have unique features, such as Michel Bordeleau's "playing the feet" -- where he taps out a steady cadence -- and the jaunty, Quebecois call-and-response style that animates several numbers. Although Bottine uses folk structures, it reinvents them, adding, for example, elements of jazz or nontraditional instrumentation and arrangements. This good-time bunch of fellows seems, at times, to be physically unable to keep...

Although Bottine uses folk structures, it reinvents them, adding, for example, elements of jazz or nontraditional instrumentation and arrangements. This good-time bunch of fellows seems, at times, to be physically unable to keep from revving up a song until it feels like it will explode. Their extended jams get more and more complex, gathering steam with each round, but are still laid down with exacting precision. If there are pubs in heaven, the bar bands probably sound like this.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
La Bottine Souriante's Rock & Reel is their first album for Blue Note, and is appropriately one of their most diverse releases, blending their festive Acadian-French sound with elements of New Orleans swing as well as Celtic and Latin music. The group's energetic sound shines on "Il Reel Du Forgeron," "Yoyo-Verret," "Suite Metisse" and "Margot Fringue."
