Georges Edouard NouelChodo ... LP
Rebirth On Wax (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A hell of a great little record – an album made by a keyboardist from Martinique, working in a Paris studio in the 70s – with all the wonderful cross-cultural elements you might expect! The music is definitely jazz at the core, and quite spiritual too – but the range of expressions and instrumentation are nicely varied, and go way past the obvious! Georges Eduard Noel plays a fair bit of Fender Rhodes – often with a strongly soaring approach that really works well with the bold percussion on the record – which not only includes drums, but also cowbell, guiro, congas, and lots of other instrumentation as well! The only other instrument in the mix is electric bass – but even so, the album's got a richness that's quite different from the usual piano trio record – as you'll hear on the tracks "Cesca", "Chodo", "Solingen", "Mazurak", and "Chandernagor".

✨✧ Louis XavierLadja – Jazz With A West Indian Soul ... LP
ADDA/Rebirth On Wax (France), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great little session of electric funky jazz – with a bit of a West Indian twist – all of which makes the album a real standout from other efforts at the time! The session was recorded in Paris, and led by bassist Louis Xavier – but the killer talent is saxophonist Jo Maka, who plays some great alto and soprano on the set – cutting through the mix of percussion, electric bass, and keyboards with his really sharp sound! There's some nice Fender Rhodes on the album, strong percussion, and the best tracks have a kind of skittish percussion groove that's really more Afro-jazz than it is Caribbean – on titles that include "Delito", "Steps", "Migan", "Miss Bee", and "Helix".
