Baroque Jazz TrioBaroque Jazz Trio (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Largo" and "Orientasie". CD

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".

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

Jef Gilson & MalagasyMalagasy ... CD
Palm/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
A groundbreaking project from French pianist Jef Gilson – an artist who'd already made some incredible records in the 60s, but really knocked it out of the park here – by collaborating with a host of musicians from Madagascar! The set mixes Gilson's strong ear for arrangement with these wonderful twists and turns in both the rhythms, and in the phrasing of the horns – a lineup that includes Georges Rahoerson on soprano sax, Roland De Comarmond on baritone, Alain Razafinohatra on alto, and Serge Rahoerson and Joel Rakotomamonjyh on tenors – working alongside Gilson on piano and some balafon-like use of xylophone! The tracks are filled with modal changes – moving even more strongly when the group brings in some added percussion – and on one track, Gilson plays some very cool Hohner electric piano too. Titles include a remake of "The Creator Has A Master Plan" – plus "Avaradoha", "Chant Inca", "Sodina", and "Malagasy". CD

Jef Gilson & MalagasyMalagasy At Newport-Paris ... CD
Palm/Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
An incredible live performance from French pianist Jef Gilson and his groundbreaking Malagasy combo – a group of musicians from Madagascar, exiled in Paris – working here with Gilson on some really amazing sounds! The record is definitely jazz a the core – thanks to plenty of Fender Rhodes from Jef and strong tenor solos from Del Rabenja – but there's also a lot of percussion from Sylvain Marc and Ange Zizi Japhet, and nice heavy drums from Frank Raholison, who keeps things funky in all the right ways. Marc also handles heavy bass and some great guitar – and on two tracks, Gilson picks up the ondoline, used in a really beautiful way! Titles include "Veloma Lava", "Valiha Del", "1973", "Dizzy", "Solo Frank", and "Buddah's Vision". CD

Sylvain Marc & Del RabenjaMadagascar Now ... CD
Palm/Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
One of the coolest albums on the rare Palm label of pianist Jef Gilson – a set that's got even more global instrumental currents than some of the other releases on the imprint during it's too-short run! The group is headed here by bassist Sylvin Marc, who also plays drums and percussion – and Madagascar musician Del Rabenja, who plays the Valiha – a cool bamboo harp-like instrument that dominates the first half of the record, before Del switches over to tenor sax and Fender Rhodes – handled with equally great energy! The rest of the group features more bass, drums, and percussion – working in an earthy groove that's occasionally topped by these vocalizations that really give the music some depth and a strongly collaborative vibe throughout. Titles include "Valiha Ny Dada", "Katramo", "Amore Ny Canal", "Del Light", and "Rotaka". CD

Michel PortalAlors ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve PottsMusique Pour Le Film D'un Ami ... CD
123/Souffle Continu (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A strange and beautiful album from reedman Steve Potts – an artist that most folks know as a key part of the Steve Lacy group on the French scene of the 70s, but who stepped aside to record this rare album as a leader! As you'd guess from the title, the album's a soundtrack of sorts – but it also stands strongly as a very unique moment of music from Potts – who blows soprano and alto here, but in ways that are quite different from his work with Lacy – often more spacious or modal – and in a lineup that includes guitar, both acoustic and electric, from Christian Escoude and Elie Ferre – plus piano, trumpet, accordion, and percussion – all composed and directed by Potts, with a flair for color and sensitivity that we never would have expected. Titles include "Rock", "Poeme", "Street Blues", "Marie France", "Tango", "Java", "Mary Jo", "Route 69", and "Antigone". CD

✨✧ Barney WilenMoshi (180 gram pressing – with bonus DVD) ... LP
Saravah/Souffle Continu (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wild and groundbreaking record recorded by the great French tenor player Barney Wilen! Although he got his start as a bebopper in the 50's, Wilen sort of dropped out of sight by the end of the 60's – and only emerged from time to time to cut strangely experimental sides. This record is unlike anything he ever made, and features a wild mix of African rhythms, ambient sound, and Wilen's deep deep tenor. By this point, Wilen had been absorbing a lot of different influences, from Coltrane, to Pharoah Sanders, to some of the European free players, and his sound is a weird mish mash of styles that weaves in and out of all the stuff on the record. It's a haunting bit of afro jazz and funky noise, with some cuts that are spacey, and others that are nice and funky. Includes the cuts "Afrika Freak Out" and "Zombizar", plus lots of other goodies! A fantastic pressing – with a bonus 20 page booklet of notes and pictures, and a bonus DVD with a film about the album! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a DVD of Caroline De Bendern's film "A L'Intention De Mademoiselle Issoufou A Bilma"!)

✨✧ Ted CursonPop Wine ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Ted Curson at his finest – an incredible album that has him blowing hard, and with a wonderfully soulful style on the Paris scene of the early 70s! Curson's always been a hell of a trumpeter – but he's all-out, over-the-top on this amazing session from 1971 – working alongside the legendary trio of pianist George Arvanitas – who themselves really seem to hit a special sort of sound for the record! The tracks have a long, open-ended quality that offers a mix of modal grooving and hard spiritual soloing – perfect territory for Curson to show his stuff, over a groove that you'd hardly expect from Georges' group. Arvanitas' bassist Jacky Samson has this warm, round, wonderful tone that's a perfect foil for Curson's spirited blowing – and titles include "Quartier Latin", "Pop Wine", "LSD Takes A Holiday", and "Flip Top".

✨✧ Le Theatre Du Chene NoirMiss Madona EP ... 7-inch
Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Heavenly sounds from early 70s France – an EP, but one with the power of a much bigger record – thanks to uniquely-crafted work from Le Theatre Du Chene Noir! The set begins with "Le Chant Du Cirque" – a tune that has an eerie wordless vocal over a slow-building rhythm, then cut through with this sublime alto solo by Pierre Surtel – very soulful and spiritual! The flipside features "Le Numero De Miss Madona" – which has this great electronic-sounding organ from Daniel Dublet, almost in a Sun Ra mode – followed by the shorter "Ballade De La Bete", which slows the organ down, and adds in some eerie voice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Sahib Shihab & Jef GilsonSahib Shihab + Gilson Unit – La Marche Dans Le Desert ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
