Jef GilsonLe Massacre Du Printemps ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the most striking albums ever from French experimentalist Jef Gilson – and one of the most outside as well! The album's from the same vintage as some of Gilson's world jazz experiments on the Palm label, but the overall feel here is much more free – with Jef working on a fuzzy Electra Hohner piano, which sounds very stark and trippy – alongside organ from Pierre Moret and drums from Jean Claude Pourtier – as well as other instrumentation from all three members of the trio! There's lots of percussion and extra elements that come into the mix – creating an organic feel that's different than other freer jazz work of the time – and Gilson's use of the electric keyboard is strongly resonant, with bold sounds that never overlap – but hang in the air nicely amidst the percussion. Claude Jeanmarie also plays prepared piano on one track – and titles include "Les Cigales", "Faut Qu'on", "Tournant Decisif", and "Le Massacre Du Printemps". LP, Vinyl record album

Sahib Shihab & Jef GilsonSahib Shihab + Gilson Unit – La Marche Dans Le Desert ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An amazing meeting of two of the most revolutionary talents on the European jazz scene of the early 70s – American expat Sahib Shihab, blowing some of his most exotic reeds ever – and pianist Jef Gilson, working here on electric keys and ondioline! The album's got a sound that echoes some of Gilson's most creative world/jazz experiments – a feel that definitely lives up to the desert march of the title, and which comes across with a loose, freewheeling sound that's almost in the territory of Sun Ra or Salah Ragab! Shihab plays baritone sax and Varitone soprano, and other group members include Bruno Di Gioia on flute, balafon, and bongos; Pierre Moret on Hohner organ, percussion, and ondioline; Maurice Bouhana on flute and percussion; and Jean-Claude Pourtier on whistle and percussion. Titles include the extended "Mirage (parts 1 & 2)" – plus "Les Touches Noires" and "La Marche Dans Le Desert". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michel PortalAlors!! ... CD
Futura (France), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark French avant session from the start of the 70s – and one of the most bracingly brilliant albums ever recorded by saxophonist Michel Portal! Portal's paired here with British reedman John Surman – and the duo play some amazingly complex lines on the date – very freewheeling, but not entirely without structure – as Portal handles alto sax and bass clarinet, and Surman blows soprano, baritone, and bass clarinet as well. Other group members include Barre Phillips on bass, Stu Martin on drums, and Jean-Pierre Drouet on percussion – and the use of two percussion players, without piano, makes for a very unique quality to the record. Titles include "Oo Bam Ba Deep", "Ca Boom?", "Undercurrent", "Yes, Oh Yes, You Wonderful Sun Kissed Maiden", and "Y En A Marre". CD

✨✧ VariousClub Jazz A La Mode 2 ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A flurry of jazzy club tracks – some in the all-acoustic club jazz mode, others at more of a remix level – but all pretty darn great, and packaged together beautifully! Most tracks have vocals, but the instrumentation dominates – and includes crackling bossa and Latin percussion, modal piano lines, and some sweetly crafted horn lines arching over the top of the tracks to further deepen their soul. There's a number of hard to find singles on the collection, working together to make one groovy package – with a dozen titles that include "Fela Brasil" by Raw Artistic Soul, "Omerta Bossa (version de Les Bossa 4 by Nicola Conte)" by Isabelle Antena, "Sing Sing Sing" by Jazzbeat, "Gods Of The Yoruba (belem)" by Gerardo Frisina, "Tribute" by Sumo, "Hi Fly" by Povo, "Soy Y Luna" by Bossa Futura, and "Eastern Soul" by Nu Tropic with Allen Hoist.

VariousCold Waves Of Color Vol 6 ... LP
Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Special sounds from the deep work of underground electronic music that lurked way down below the British charts of the early 80s – music by a host of different groups who still hold strong to the early, darker post-punk styles of Sheffield and Manchester – mostly using analogue electronics at a time when the digital world was really cleaning things up! These cuts are fantastic – every bit as mindblowing as all the previous volumes in this game-changing series – and as with those releases, most of the cuts here were only issued as cassettes or singles back in the day – if they saw any circulation at all! Titles include "After Dusk" by Berserk In A Hayfield, "Cabaret Futurama" by Neutron Scientists, "Electro Switch" by Silicon Valley, "Dimension 2" by Modern Art, "Radioactive" by Disintegrators, and "Controlled Experiment" by Echophase. LP, Vinyl record album
