Bon Ton Roulet! and more

Dubbed the “King of Zydeco,” Clifton Chenier began recording for Arhoolie Records in the early 1960s. This compilation, “Bon Ton Roulet” (“good times roll” in Louisiana Creole French) presents an assortment of Zydeco music recorded during that time. Featuring family members uncle Morris “Big” Chenier on violin and brother Cleveland on rubboard (vest frottoir), the collection presents shuffles, two-step, waltz, boogie-woogie and the blues played in the Zydeco style made popular by Chenier. The liner notes include a brief reflection on Chenier by Arhoolie founder Chris Strachwitz.
