✨✧ Jacques LoussierPlay Bach 2 ... LP
London, 1960. Very Good ... $9.99
The second of two groundbreaking albums for the Paris jazz scen. Although Loussier's formula was often copied during the 60s, at the time of these recordings, his mix of jazz and classical styles was fairly revolutionary – and a perfect way to link the postwar European love of jazz with older musical traditions on the continent. And sure, Bach got overdone during the 60s by artists like Swingle Singers or Walter Carlos – but this set's some of the first jazz Bach ever recorded, and thanks to some great rhythm work by Christian Garros and Pierre Michelot, it still sounds pretty darn jazzy! Titles include "Prelude No 6", "Fugue No 16", "Gigue", "Menuet 1", and "Allemande". (Jazz, French) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lasry-BaschetInstruments Non-Electronique ... LP
Cacophonic (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of some of the earliest Lasry-Baschet recordings – some of the greatest avant French sounds of the late 50s! It's the union of two pairs of musically progressive siblings – sound and instrument engineers/sculpters Bemard and Francois Baschet and piano-trained musicians Jacques and Yvonne Lasry – making strangely compelling, oddly percussive music that's never too far out, and always genuinely musical. Incredible stuff! Includes "La Danse Du Cristal", "Prelude Metallique", 'Toccata Toccarde", "Invention A 2 Voix En Re Mineur", "Mister Blues", "Paludisme (Part 2)", "Rapsodie De Budapest", "Musique Du Film Cosmotonie", "Paludisme (Part 1)", "Quatuor Pour Trois" and more. (Out Sound, French) LP, Vinyl record album
