✨✧ Brigitte Fontaine et AreskiJe Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme – Fontaine 4 ... LP
Saravah/Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful duets between Brigitte Fontaine and Areski – and an album that's filled with loads of short little tracks that stand with some of their greatest work ever! Instrumentation is spare, but incredibly haunting – a bit jazzy at times, slightly experimental at others – but always quiet enough to allow the slightly-whispered vocals of the pair dominate the record. There's a strong sense of poetry here – but without any of the stiffness or pretension that might imply – and the record's a wonderful illustration of the genre-crossing genius of the Saravah label at its best! Tracks include "Le Silence", "Depuis", "J'Ai 26 Ans, Madame", "C'est Normal", and "Dis-Moi". LP, Vinyl record album

Darius JonesLe Bebe De Brigitte (Lost In Translation) ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A very unusual album from reedman Darius Jones – a special project dedicated to the legendary French vocalist Brigitte Fontaine, with vocals that definitely recall the singer at some of her most adventurous moments! Fontaine's no stranger to the racks at Dusty Groove – as we've loved her music for years – both under her own name, and collaborations with Areski and the Art Ensemble Of Chicago! This album's most like Brigitte's recording with the latter – as it features strongly expressive jazz passages from a group led by Jones on alto, with Matt Mitchell on piano, Sean Conly on bass, and Ches Smith on drums and percussion – fronted by French vocalist Emilie Lesbros, who really gets at the sort of poetry that Fontaine brought to her recordings, a style that's way more than jazz – and which interacts with the instrumentation both at a verbal and musical level. Titles include "Two Worlds One Soul", "Chanteuse In Blue", "Universal Translator", "Beneath The Skin", and "I Can't Keep From Weeping". CD

✨✧ VariousLes Annes Saravah – 1967 to 2002 ... CD
Saravah/Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 60s/Early 70s/Late 90s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 29.99
A beautiful tribute to the legendary French label Saravah – founded by songwriter Pierre Barouh with his royalties from the worldwide hit "A Man & A Woman" – then run for decades as a model of recording innovation and collaborative creativity! The sound of Saravah is incredibly hard to peg – and we mean that in the best way possible – as the label completely exploded older style of French chanson with experimental work from new talents in the 60s and 70s – then brought in strands of avant jazz, bossa nova, global rhythms, and even some folksy currents too – but all with this very creative, genre-crossing mode that's still without compare all these many years later! The label is best known for its famous records with singer Brigitte Fontaine – who makes an appearance here, but in the company of so many of Saravah's other overlooked talents – in a collection that looks at the early flourishing of recordings in the late 60s and early 70s, then moves into work from the great revival years of the label from the mid 90s onward. This package features notes in both English and French, and includes a lot of Saravah gems we haven't seen reissued elsewhere – titles that include "J'Attendrai" by Fred Poulet, "Maman" by Oscar Castro & Anna Vallejo, "Photo" by Bia, "Afrika Obota" by Pierre Akendengue, "Coeur De Rubis" by Francoise Kucheida, "Signaletique" by Areski & Jacques Higelin, "Le Temps D'Une Vie" by Pierre Barouh & Anna Vallejo, "Femme Parmi Les Femmes" by Francoise Hardy, "La Valse De L'Oubli" by Carole Laure, "Dans Ma Rue" by Areski, "Comme A La Radio" by Brigitte Fontaine, "Tiens J'Ai Dit Tiens" by Jacques Higelin, "Je Hais Le Gosses" by Allain Leprest, and "1962" by Gerard Ansaloni.

✨✧ Brigitte FontaineBrigitte Fontaine (1972) ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album by this enigmatic French singer – one of her first truly experimental albums! The record differs from some of her other albums quite a bit – and has a very strange mix of styles that go from straight ahead (only a track or two), to wildly experimental – very much in the best genre-breaking mode that was going on with the Saravah Records scene in the post-1968 years. Although longtime partner Areski did contribute to this album, the record also features work by Saravah labelmate Jacques Higelin, plus French jazz players like Georges Arvanitas and Philippe Mate – all of whom really help bring some fresh flavors to the record! Great stuff all 'round, and titles include "Brigitte", "Moi Aussi", "Eros", "Marcelle", "Premier Juillet", and "Le Dragon". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brigitte Fontaine & Art Ensemble of ChicagoComme A La Radio ... CD
Saravah/Superior Viaduct (France), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever recorded – a legendary meeting between the Art Ensemble Of Chicago and inventive French singer Brigitte Fontaine! The set was recorded at the end of the 60s in Paris, and it perfectly sums up all of the incredible energy bubbling out of the post-68 years – an openness to new music, new ideas, and new forms of expression – presented here in an open, honest way that only the Saravah label could muster! Fontaine's vocals are wonderful – soft-sung and spoken, with a style that's like that of a more artful and poetic Jane Birkin – and the backings from the Art Ensemble are some of their most sensitive ever – very balanced and conscious of sound, in ways that make us wish they'd recorded a lot more like this. There's never a dull moment on the record, and the set is honestly one of the reasons we first got into this business in the first place – the kind of life-changing record that's a real honor for us to stock. Frequent Fontaine partner Areski joins in on a few tracks, and titles include "Comme A La Radio", "L'Ete L'Ete", "Le Brouillard", "Tanka II", "Leo", and "Les Petits Chevaux". CD
