A very cool record – and one with a sound that's as dreamy as the group's name – a laidback mix of vibes, saxes, piano, and percussion – all used in ways that are airy and open, and very different than most other underground jazz of the time! The group hail from New England, and ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Jacky Giordano —
Organ – IM 24 ... LP Le Tres Jazz Club (France), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)...
Fantastic funky organ from Jacky Giordano – a European keyboardist who seems to sparkle in just about every style he tries on! The set's a sound library record, barely issued at the time – but Jacky treats the proceedings like he's trying to audition for some top-level jazz organ ...

Keyboardist Jacky Giordano really steps out here – in an "organ plus" mode that also features work on a fair bit of other electric keys too! The style is nice and simple – tight, short tracks that follow the best sound library funk modes of the 70s – with plenty of ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the funkiest records of the French scene of the 70s – a now-legendary sound library album from Jacky Giordano – and one that's filled with amazing keyboards throughout! Jacky stars with grooves that are like some of the best Lalo Schfrin crime/cop modes of the early 70s – ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Les Masques with Le Trio Camara —
Brasilian Sound ... LP CBS/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)...
Groovy groovy groovy! Les Masques were a 60s vocal-oriented Brazilian combo from France, and they had a tight jazzy approach that was similar to Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66! That alone would be enough to make them #1 in our book – but they also get some excellent backing from the Trio ... (Brazil) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Akira Miyazawa —
Four Units ... LP Takt/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...
Some of the most arch-modern work we've ever heard from Japanese reedman Akira Miyazawa – proof that even though he was one of his nation's greatest straight jazz sax players in the 60s, he could also open up experimentally too! Akira's playing both flute and tenor here – and he's ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
George Otsuka —
Physical Structure ... LP Three Blind Mice/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
Japanese drummer George Otsuka is always one hell of a hip cat – one of those players whose name on a record always means that we'll pick it up – and never fail to hear something wonderful! And while Otsuka first got his start working with a piano trio at the end of the 60s, this sweet ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Hiromasa Suzuki —
Primrose ... LP Union/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
Warm and wonderful work from pianist Hiromasa Suzuki – a real leading light in the Japanese trio scene of the 70s! The album's got a really wonderful vibe throughout – modes initially informed by a bit of Bill Evans, and maybe some Tommy Flanagan too – recorded with warm tones ...

Mabumi Yamaguchi —
Leeward ... LP Union/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
Spare sounds, but beautifully woven together – all in service of these lovely long tracks that really highlight the soulful side of reedman Mabumi Yamaguchi! Each number here takes up half the side of a record – there's only four tracks in all – and Yamaguchi plays these slow-buil ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
