✨✧ Anthony BraxtonAnthony Braxton (BYG) ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of Anthony Braxton's great records for BYG, and like the other one, a very cool session that has Braxton playing in a vibe that shows his AACM roots much more clearly than a lot of other sessions! He's playing here with a number of other Chicago expatriates – including Leo Smith on ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don CherryMu Second Part ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don Cherry really breaks out here on his classic Mu sessions from France – using the new freedoms of post-68 Paris to explore themes at a level that would set the tone for generations to come! The album's very spare, and very improvised – with Cherry on pocket trumpet, piano, and ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ GongOpium For The People ... CD
Actuel/Atom (Germany), Early 70s/1980. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A heady assortment of work from the BYG/Actuel years of Gong – tracks that show just how much Daevid Allen and the group were able to trip things out far past any early inspirations from the UK scene – to a point where the French label was maybe more of a perfect home for the freaky ...

✨✧ Burton Greene EnsembleAquariana ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more obscure sessions on BYG/Actuel – recorded in the heyday of 1969, with a free spirit and a transatlantic sense of energy from the mixture of French players and American expatriots. Burton Greene leads the group on piano, and the other players include Arthur Jones on alto, ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Steve LacyMoon ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A seminal early work in Lacy's European career! The album was recorded in Rome in 1969 – one of the few BYG albums not to be done in Paris – and it features Lacy in a grup with cello by Irene Aebi (one of her first appearances on record with him!), plus drumming by Jacques Thollot, ...

BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Essential stuff – and one of a few albums recorded for BYG/Actual by trombonist Grachan Moncur III – some of his best work after his initial classics for Blue Note! The album features Moncur fronting a European rhythm section – performing one side of interpretations of Brazilian ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sunny MurrayHommage To Africa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the more spiritual sessions for BYG, and a large ensemble session that brings together players like Archie Shepp, Malachi Favors, Roscoe Mitchell, Grachan Moncur, and Clifford Thornton. "Suns Of Africa" takes up all of side one, and although it begins slow, and with spare soloing, ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most ambitious albums that Sunny Murray ever recorded – a set of large ideas and long explorations – performed here by a group of all-star avant players from the time! Murray's vision is wonderful here – even bolder and more expressive than on his work for ESP – ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaSolar-Myth Approach Vol 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Really unique material from Sun Ra – a pair of recordings that were initially circulated much more strongly than some of his Saturn Records material, thanks to the power of the BYG/Actuel label in the early 70s – but tracks that actually come from a variety of different sessions that Ra ...

✨✧ Sonny SharrockMonkey-Pockie-Boo (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wow! This is one of Sonny Sharrock's rare early recordings, recorded in France shortly after he had been playing with Herbie Mann. The groove's kind of crazy, and it's amazing that Sonny jumped out so soon after leaving the sort of pop-jazz environs he was in with Herbie – but hey, lots of ...

✨✧ Archie SheppBlase ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crucial album from Archie Shepp – one that finds him enjoying new freedoms on the French scene at the end of the 60s – which then helps him take off from his earlier Impulse Records modes, at a level he'd then bring back to the label in the early 70s! There's a very free-thinking ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Beautiful work from Archie Shepp – a record that's filled with meaning and power, and which really stands out as a freer expression of his ideals while working on the European scene! The players here are an array of other BYG/Actuel luminaries – including Burton Green on piano, Grachan ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Archie SheppYasmina, A Black Woman ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Archie Shepp at his spiritual best – recording in Paris in 1969, and absorbing a heck of a lot pan-African influences! Shepp's in the lead on tenor – working with a great lineup of up-and coming avant geniuses – Clifford Thortnton on cornet, Lester Bowie on trumpet, Roscoe ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 2 ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A seminal live set from tenorist Archie Shepp – and some of his freest, least-structured material ever! Shepp's still a righteous force here on his horn, but there also seems to be equal emphasis on the contributions of all members of the group – woven together in a really rich ...

Silva leads his Celestrial Communication Orchestra, one of the best of the loose collectives playing around the Paris scene of the 1969/1970 era – and a group that includes Grachan Moncur III, Archie Shepp, Anthony Braxton, Malachi Favors, Dave Burrell, and Bernard Vitet.

Clifford ThorntonKetchaoua ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... About November 15, 2020 (delayed)
An early gem from the great Clifford Thornton – maybe his best-known album over the years, thanks to its placement on the post-68 series of French free jazz releases on the BYG/Actuel label – but a set that's got a much more New York vibe overall, and stands as a key precursor to so ...
