Jef Gilson - Enfin (Acétate - France - 1964)


Extremely rare and unseen Acetate test pressing of Jef Gilson's classic modal jazz album Enfin! but apparently with a different tracks order as you can seen on the label. For serious collectors of French jazz this record, Jef Gilson released this french jazz beauty in 1963 on his own label. I didn't noticed if the versions or the mix were different from the commercial release. Includes the masterpiece Le Grand Bidou, here hand written Bidou on the label, and classic tracks like Anamorphose, spiritual and modal jazz collectors will know ! Features many of the french jazz heroes like Bernard Vitet, Michel Portal, François Jeanneau, Jean-Luc Ponty, Jacques Thollot on drums, Henry Texier on bass ... Landmark allbum in the French jazz history !

Record has a lot of surface marks, some tracks like "Bidou" plays great but most of the tunes has clicks as you can hear on the actual soundclip. No cover available. A pretty unique gem for really serious french jazz collectors.
