Prepare yourself to discover a funky jazz genius! We don't know much about Bernard except that he was French – but this CD's a stunner, and is filled with the kind of funky little gems that we always try to find on European jazz and studio library albums. There's lots of late 60s mod touches – like organ, electric piano, and even a bit of electric harpsichord – and the record kind of sounds like funky French backings for a pop record from the same time. Titles include "Le Pain, Le Vin", "De Temps En Temps", "Autoscopie", "Cha Tatch Ka", "Monsieur Detour", "Bave A Roi", and "Meut's Boogie".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
