Alain BellaicheSea Fluorescent ... LP
Asylum/Souffle Continu (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Rare funky fusion by this overlooked French guitarist – recorded in New York with a really unusual group, and in a setting that has Alain Bellaiche providing a bit of vocals too! The sound is great – different than some of the more jamming rock fusion of the European scene at mid 70s – maybe in part because the keyboardist on the set is John Hicks, an artist who doesn't usually do records like this – and who brings in some wonderful elements on acoustic and electric piano, and a bit of organ too! There's also all sorts of great percussion touches from the enigmatic Fabiano – vibes, celeste, bells, and more – in addition to drums – plus bass from Worrell Jones, who keeps things nice and tight throughout. Alain sings on most tracks, in this flowing style that's more soulful than slick – never overdone, and almost just another warm musical element in the mix – on titles that include "I'm Angry", "California", "St Andrea", "Got My Place In The Country", "Spanish Roots", and "Sun Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Please Note – one cover corner is slightly bumped from shipping, but the rest is great.)

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

Le Theatre Du Chene NoirMiss Madona EP ... 7-inch
Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
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

Steve PottsMusique Pour Le Film D'un Ami ... LP
123/Souffle Continu (France), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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". 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

✨✧ Baroque Jazz TrioBaroque Jazz Trio (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Baroque Jazz TrioOrientasie/Largo ... 7-inch
Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
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)... Out Of Stock
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)... Out Of Stock
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)... Out Of Stock
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 ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Michel RoquesChorus ... LP
Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
