Valdambrini-Piana Quintet NEW
Afrodite (Vedette - VPA 8387) 197, Italy

One of my favorite italian groovy jazz album by Oscar Valdambrini and Dino Piana in the same vein as Romano Mussoli's Mirage (But much better in my humble opinion). The whole album is brilliant from start to finnish, Includes the beautiful modal "I Due Modi with fantastic solo by "Arabian Mood" is splendid deep jazz cut with strong oriental feel. "Palpitazione" is great soul jazz cut with superb Fender Rhodes sound by Oscar Rocchi while Giorgio Azzolini and Tullio de Piscopo are doing great on bass & drums. "Afrodite" is a slow paced spiritual jazz also. Record is close to NM. Cover is NM.

Octet De Dreux & Various NEW
Dreux 1985 (Private) 1985, France

Back In stock ! Ultra tough to find private album that was released by the local music school of Dreux, a little town near Paris. Most of the tracks are composed by non professional bands. Look after for the amazing tune "Door Step" that we recently compiled on "Freedom Jazz France". This beautiful modal jazz track is just so deep with this weirdo DX7 synth solo at the middle and floating flute solo ! Features another excellent cut by this band + 3 others nice tracks by amateur bands. This is my last copy. Records is unplayed. Cover has wear on seams. No split.

Jef Gilson Septet JUST SOLD
avec Llyod Miller (Ultra rare test pressing version) (Spirit Jazz sjd 1) 1961, France

Probably one the rarest jazz record I had to offer for sale. Totally cult and almost impossible to find in this condition, this beautiful 10' reveals on side A, one of the best modal jazz track I have ever heard "Le Grand Bidou". Side A features the young Llyod Miller on balafon & miniorgan, while B side is another session recorded in 1958 with american musicians. Record is strong VG + with only a few barely visible marks, it has 2 strong marks causing several clicks on "Et Monk" & "Quiproquo". The rest of the album plays perfectly. Cover is NM. Ultra rare item, giveaway price.

Moravagine NEW
s/t (Promophone) 1971, France

Outstanding funky jazz from France on the private label Promophone by the former leader of Chute Libre Olivier Hutman on piano, featuring Denis Barbier on flute, Pierre-Jean Gidon on sax, Jean-Marie Laumonnier, JP Lobrot on drums, Mino Cinelu on percussion. This underrated Lp reveals an amazing blending of influences, from afro jazz to funk, to samba, even going free sometimes. Just check the funky flute “Funky Seven”, the huge basslines and solos of “Andromede" “Culbuto”, the fabulous “Ruhenol" definitely sounding like Cortex Troupeau Bleu, “Usted De Poisson” and the spacy jazz “Zabuco". Simply one of my favorite deep jazz album.

Raphaël JUST SOLD
Stop, Look, Listen (Selection) 1972, Belgium

Ultra hard to find little known jazz album which I condisider as a masterpiece was recorded in Belgium in 1972 by American born pianist Phil Raphaël with the help of belgium top notch jazzmen. This brilliant album has a really unique and seldom heard sound melting different musical styles like be-bop, deep vocal jazz and rock. Many musicians tried their hand at fusion around that time, but this album is unequalled in its lyrical, poetic chemistry. Stop, look, listen and send a nice offer…
