Brigitte Fontaine & AreskiLe Bonheur ... CD
Saravah (France), 1975. Used ... $8.99
Perhaps one of the most hauntingly beautiful albums by the team of Brigitte Fontaine and Areski – although we'll admit that we love all of them almost equally well! If you haven't heard their records, we can't even begin to describe them – but let us just say that they feature fragile vocals from Brigitte Fontaine, spare percussive arrangements from Areski, and a bit of ensemble vocals between the pair – fragile, poetic, and extremely compelling – very organic in construction, but at a level of songcraft that's without any referent at all! There's appeal to folk fans and those who love chanson – although we'd be hard pressed to describe this record as sounding like either of those styles – and like all of the best work on the Saravah label, it represents a really unique musical moment. Titles include "Bobo", "Le Proprietaire", "Theatre", "La Citrouille", and "Mephisto". Beautiful stuff by one of the most godlike teams ever recorded! CD

✨✧ Brigitte Fontaine & AreskiL'Incendie (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Great work by the team of Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belcam – two of the most enigmatic talents you'll ever hear on record! The album's the only one they ever recorded that wasn't issued by the Saravah label – and it's a fantastic blend of otherworldly vocals with spare instrumentation that includes electric piano, flute, bandoneon, and percussion – wrapped together wonderfully with a haunting sound that's just amazing. Even if you don't understand French, the sound and style of the voices are more than enough to keep you captivated – and the album is some of the most indescribably beautiful music we can think of! Titles include "Le Borgais", "L'Abeille", "Les Petites Madones", "Le 6 Septembre", and "Ragilia". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brigitte Fontaine et AreskiJe Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme – Fontaine 4 ... CD
Saravah (France), 1973. New Copy ... 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". CD

Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saravah (Japan), 1971. Used ... $12.99
Genius early work from Pierre Barouh – the artist best known for his contribution to the film A Man & A Woman, but also the owner of the legendary Saravah Records label – one of the grooviest imprints around! The set is a real move forward from Barouh's earlier material, which was a bit straighter – although still pretty hip – and this time around, he's bringing in a wide range of elements – Brazilian bits, folksy touches, and more – all served up with an approach that's as uniquely personal as work by other Saravah artists, like Brigitte Fontaine or Areski! Barouh's a brilliant writer and singer, and his work is a lost link in a tradition that spans Caetano Veloso, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, and others – crucially overlooked on this side of the Atlantic, and extremely important to us over the years. Titles include "De L'Amour A L'Amour", "Le Courage D'Aimer", "80 AB", "La Foret", "Le Petit Cheval De Bois", "Le Petit Cine", and "Paris Wellington". CD features bonus tracks – "Le Naufrage", "Perdu", "Ca Va Ca Vient (cinema version)", and "80 AB". CD

✨✧ VariousJazz Extract Of Saravah – Selected By Hiroko Otsuka ... CD
Saravah (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s/Late 90s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the jazz-based legacy of Saravah Records – that ultra-cool French label from the early 70s that gave us some excellent albums by Steve Lacy and The Art Ensemble Of Chicago! Yet this collection goes way past those classics, to unlock jazz currents from Saravah in different corners of the label's rich output – both material from its early years, and the moment of its revival at the end of the last century – and always carried along with that criss-crossing of global cultural currents that made the Parisian record company so unique! Most of the material here isn't straight jazz – but is instead blended with elements of African or South American rhythms, or given some French poetic setting, or turned towards some of the experimental modes of label artists like Areski or Brigitte Fontaine. The set features 21 tracks in all – many we might have missed otherwise – and titles include "Monsieur Chimpanze" by Michel Roques, "Improvisation Lettriste Pour Danser" by Maurice Lemaitre & Areski, "Ain't Nobody's Business But My Own" by Chic Streetman, "Bulerias Hermanos" by Armadillo, "Tiens J'Ai Dit Tiens" by Jacques Higelin, "Le Denicheur" by Mahjun, "Maria Candida" by Mas Trio, "Accordeon" by Daniel Mille & Pierre Barouh, "Guantanamera" by Leo Brouwer, "Bye Bye Belleville" by Quartet Elan, and "Philly" by the all-piano quartet of Georges Arvanitas, Michel Graillier, Rene Urtreger, and Maurice Vander.
