An original franco-blues album

Recorded in March 2011 at Le Clandestin Studio in Quebec
Comment by "John's Blues Picks" from the Toronto Blues Society

With blues so popular around the world, it has often puzzled me why musicians from non-American backgrounds force themselves to sing as though they were Americans and often like African-Americans, ignoring their own culture completely. English-Canadians admittedly don't have far to go but this phenomenon has largely been true of French-Canadians as well.
Mike DeWay
didn't see the point of doing that either: Turbulence is all in French, a few instrumentals aside, but a solid blues album nonetheless. He and his band know how to play: the opening “C'est où qu't'es t'alleé” has a lovely groove, the two saxes, keyboards, guitar, bass & drums lineup meshing nicely. “Otis Blues”, one of the instrumentals, finds DeWay channeling Otis Rush, his playing showing a top-rank guitarist. I found myself wondering how many other treasures the Quebec scene is hiding. It's an enjoyable disc throughout and probably even better if your French is good.
