Baroque Jazz Trio ... LP Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...
Beautiful stuff – and one of the most stunning jazz albums ever recorded – a blinding mix of harpsichord, cello, and Indian percussion – with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! The album was the brainchild of the cross-culturally fertile Saravah records at the ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Le Vampire ... 7-inch Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. Near Mint- (pic cover)...
New industrial modes from Philippe Doray and his group of French experimentalists – not sounds that fall into the industrial dance world of the late 80s, but those very early, groundbreaking creations from Throbbing Gristle and the rest of their generation! This album's maybe slightly more ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Groundbreaking work from the Paris scene of the 70s – a record that's kind of post-prog, post-improvisation, and which maybe sets the scene for sonic experiments on the UK scene in years to come! Philippe Doray is at the helm of his antisocial associates here – a quintet that mixes ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Mestari ... LP Le Chant Du Monde/Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...

The album features a concert recording, with three very long-spun tracks by the ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The amazing first album from Perception – a French avant-jazz group that you might recognize from other performances from some of its members – a quartet lineup that includes Siefried Kessler on acoustic and electric piano, Didier Levallet on bass, Jean My Truong on drums, and Jeff ...

The rare second album from French free jazz combo Perception – a quartet who are already feeling such strengths that they decided to add a few other musicians to their lineup!

Chorus ... LP Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...
An amazing album from the legendary Saravah label – one of the imprint's lesser-known gems from the 70s, but a set that's got the same compelling mix of modes you'd find in their albums from Barney Wilen, Brigitte Fontaine, Pierre Barouh, or the Art Ensemble Of Chicago! Reedman Michel Roques ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A solo set from French jazz musician Jacques Thollot – but one with a wide range of sounds and styles, as he's overdubbed on piano, percussion, drums, organ, and countless electronic effects! These effects are what really make the album great – as it feels like outtakes from some ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
