✨✧ Baroque Jazz TrioBaroque Jazz Trio ... LP
Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
Beautiful stuff – and one of the most stunning jazz albums ever recorded – a blinding mix of harpsichord, cello, and Indian percussion – with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! The album was the brainchild of the cross-culturally fertile Saravah records at the end of the 60s – home to experimental work by Brigitte Fontaine, Barney Wilen, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, and others. From the start, the group wanted to work in a boundary-less territory that really pushed the limits of jazz – drawing in inspiration from world music, and working in a style they called "baroque", to emphasize the bizarreness of their project. Given the heavy use of tabla on the set, the album's got a really driving rhythmic component – making for some funky numbers that have been sought-after jazz-dance tracks for years. And the role of the harpsichord is surprisingly strong – played in almost modal lines, but with a hesitating, lilting groove that's quite different to similar use of the piano at the time. Titles include "Delhi Daily", "Chandigardh", "Latin Baroque", "Zoma", and "Cesar Go Back Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Baroque Jazz TrioOrientasie/Largo ... 7-inch
Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $11.99
Two fantastic tracks from this groundbreaking French group of the 70s – neither of which were on their famous album for the Saravah label! "Orientasie" has this slow-building mix of plucked cello and drums, then switches to bowing of the cello whole harpsichord grooves into the mix – often played with a slight bit of distortion, which really sounds incredible! "Largo" has all three elements working in a more swinging mode from the start, but the harpsichord really goes wild once things get going – and the cello hits a pretty great solo too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Philippe Doray & Les Asociaux AssociesNouveaux Modes Industriels ... LP
Souffle Continu (France), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
New industrial modes from Philippe Doray and his group of French experimentalists – not sounds that fall into the industrial dance world of the late 80s, but those very early, groundbreaking creations from Throbbing Gristle and the rest of their generation! This album's maybe slightly more song-based than Doray's previous album with his group, but there's still a pretty freewheeling, all-exploded quality going on here – that same way that TG and some of their British contemporaries took all the longer experiments of Krautrock and other sonic pioneers from the early 70s, and compressed them down to shorter, noisier moments – yet which somehow often have a songform too. Titles include "Pge De Magazin", "Le Petit Herisson Jaune", "Pas De Sevice Apres Vente", "Dans Le Dadale", "Clair Et Net", and "Contrechant Magnetique". LP, Vinyl record album

Philippe Doray & Les Asociaux AssociesRamasse-Miettes Nucleaires ... LP
Souffle Continu (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Groundbreaking work from the Paris scene of the 70s – a record that's kind of post-prog, post-improvisation, and which maybe sets the scene for sonic experiments on the UK scene in years to come! Philippe Doray is at the helm of his antisocial associates here – a quintet that mixes elements of rock, jazz, and avant classical styles, which are then altered with a sensibility borrowed from more serious worlds of musique concrete and electro-acoustic experimentation – but handled with a spirit that's very down to earth and freewheeling! There's elements here to appeal to fans of all the many styles involved – and forward to ears tuned towards the noisier experiments of Nurse With Wound, The Hafler Trio, and others – a really amazing record, with titles that include "Nucleaire", "Ramasse", "Secoue Le Flipeur", "Miettes", "Fin De Semain Dans Un Parc D'Attraction", and "La Capitale De L'Ennemi".

Le Theatre Du Chene NoirAurora ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of those amazing records from the 70s French scene – the kind of set that makes it unlike anywhere else on the planet at the time – served up in an unusual blend of avant jazz, vocals, and lots of other unusual elements! The work is a theater piece, the story of earth and its children at risk from an invasion – but the presentation is much hipper than that might make you think, very creative and spiritual – with a freewheeling sense of instrumentation and improvisation that's clearly influenced by the AACM's recent time in Paris – mixed with maybe some of that city's surrealist legacy too! The set features work from Pierre Surtel and Jean Marie Redon on flutes, Daniel Dublet on guitar and percussion, Guy Paquin on cello and trumpet, and Gerard Gelas on drums and gongs – on titles that include "Vivre", "Le Bonheur", "Arrivee De La Terre Et De Ses Enfants", and "La Vieillesse Et La Mort".

PerceptionLive At Le Stadium ... CD
Souffle Continu (France), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Unreleased live work from this fantastic French group of the 70s – a free jazz quartet, but one with a key difference – and that difference is the Fender Rhodes of Siegfried Kessler! Kessler's a monster on both electric and acoustic piano – which he uses on the set as well – and both instruments are played with a fierce frenzy that really shapes the action – bold, blocky, and very chunky – while reedman Jeff Seffer wails away on bass clarinet, soprano, sopranino, and tenor saxes! Rhythm is nice and bold too – Didier Levallet on acoustic bass, but recorded with this raspy, dark-toned style – and the great Jacques Thollot on drums. Titles include "Ville D'Avril", "Chott Djerid/Hymnus", Adexqi", "Stadium Exchanges", and "Un Coq D'Amailloux". CD

PerceptionMestari ... LP
Le Chant Du Monde/Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
A really amazing album from a French free jazz group who are really finding their way forward – issued in 1973, but already very different from most of the initial post-1968 recordings on the Parisian scene! The album features a concert recording, with three very long-spun tracks by the quartet – amazing improvisatory energy flowing between the bass if Didier Levallet, the drums of Jean My Truong, the electric piano and clavinet of Siegfried Kessler, and the mix of piccolo, bass clarinet, tenor, and sopranino sax of Jeff Seffer – who also blows this very cool "malabar" reed instrument of his own creation! Both Kessler and Seffer are completely off the hook – and it's great to hear electric keys used in this way on a free jazz recording – bold and very sinister. Titles include "Mestari", "Trabla Air", and "Chott Djerid". LP, Vinyl record album

PerceptionPerception ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
The amazing first album from Perception – a French avant-jazz group that you might recognize from other performances from some of its members – a quartet lineup that includes Siefried Kessler on acoustic and electric piano, Didier Levallet on bass, Jean My Truong on drums, and Jeff Seffer on soprano, tenor, and bass clarinet! The style here is a bold step forward from the French free modes of the BYG/Actual recordings in 1969 – still very open, expressive, and improvised – but maybe given a bit more structure at times through the chunky use of the bass and drums, which is then echoed by Kessler on the keys, especially when he's electric – although at other moments the pianist can spin out with strong lines that rival the freedoms of Cecil Taylor! Seffer is amazing too – a player that we wish we knew more of, as his work on the record is tremendous, especially on tenor – really giving full depth to tunes that include "Debora", "Enitram", "Narcisse", "Chirato", and "Phenobarbital".

Michel RoquesChorus ... LP
Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
An amazing album from the legendary Saravah label – one of the imprint's lesser-known gems from the 70s, but a set that's got the same compelling mix of modes you'd find in their albums from Barney Wilen, Brigitte Fontaine, Pierre Barouh, or the Art Ensemble Of Chicago! Reedman Michel Roques works here on both tenor and flute, in a group that's very heavy on percussion – which gives the whole thing a strong post-colonial vibe, as rootsy elements meet a hip Parisian approach – one that's underscored by Roques' French language introductions to most tracks, which set things up in a beautiful way before the instrumentation takes off. The work features both strong work from bassist P Carantini, and some warmer cello lines from JC Capon – and titles include "Le Jazz", "Le Cri", "Monsieur Chimpanze", and "Le Temps".

✨✧ PerceptionPerception & Friends ... LP
Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The rare second album from French free jazz combo Perception – a quartet who are already feeling such strengths that they decided to add a few other musicians to their lineup! As before, the performance by the core quartet is amazing – really strong, solid work on keyboards and piano from Siegfried Kessler – an artist who uses the electric instrumentation in a way that ties some slight fusion colors to the proceedings, even though the music is clearly improvised jazz through and through. And reedman Jeff Seffer is fantastic too – using bass clarinet, soprano, and tenor with such bold direction that the guest horns seem to be working very hard to keep up. Bassist Didier Levallet is a rock-solid part of the group – and also most likely the guiding force behind their creative vision – and Jean My Truong handles the drums with a boldly creative frenzy. Titles include "Colima", "Le Horla", "The Outsider", "Mamelai", and "Adeqxi/Ville D'Avril". LP, Vinyl record album
