A treasure trove of rare work from the great Guy Lafitte – a rich-voiced tenor talent from the French scene of the postwar years – every bit as important to their world as Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young were to ours! Lafitte's a player who came up in larger groups – and as such, developed a tone that could really stand out of the pack – a deep, soulful approach to jazz that's even more compelling in the small combo material features in this set – all tracks from rare 10" albums and 7" EP releases that are brought together here for the first time – a much-needed look at Lafitte's years before his more-circulated full albums recorded for RCA in the 60s and 70s. The sound is superb throughout – and other players include George Arvanitas and Raymond Fol on piano, Nat Peck on trombone, Roger Guerin on trumpet, and Dominique Chanson on alto and flute. Bop legend Kenny Hagood sings on three tracks – and titles include "Le Conte", "Corail", "Portrait De Camille", "A Song Was Born", "Queenie", "Tranquillment", "Plucky", "The Mill & The River", "Le Chat Qui Dort", and "Lonesome Lover Blues".

Guy LafitteJambo ... LP
RCA (France), 1968. Near Mint- ... $59.99
One of the greatest albums ever recorded by Guy Lafitte – a wickedly soulful set that's overflowing with Latin and modern touches! Lafitte's in the lead on tenor, backed by a group that features the groundbreaking George Arvanitas trio at its core, plus trombone from Sonny Grey and guitar from the great Jimmy Gourley. Arvanitas' group features some incredibly strong rhythm work from the team of Jacky Samson on bass and Charles Saudrais on drums – a pair that were one of the greatest bass/drum units working during the 60s on either side of the Atlantic – and equally well-suited to gently soulful moments as they were to full-on rhythmic romps! The album bristles with excitement from the word go – and features some surprising soul jazz groovers that have Arvanitas playing a bit of organ – as well as some great late nite numbers that really have Lafitte opening up on his horn. Titles include "Jambo", "Cote A Cote", "Jamaica", "African Night", and "Jamboree". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original French pressing, in a flipback cover. Cover has a cutout hole, and one slightly bumped corner – but this is a great copy overall.)
