MALAGASY & GILSON At Newport-Paris (Archive Quality Ethnic Jazz 1973 French-only private press 9-track LP on Jef Gilson’s own Palm label, recorded in a St-Germain-des-Prés nightclub with musicians from Antananarivo. In the late sixties, Jef’s musical explorations led him to the ex-French colony of Madagascar, the island just off the south eastern coast of Africa. Re-released by Jazzman Records in recent years, the album documents an incredible ethno-jazz sound as & when it was released, with instruments including the valiha [a Madagascan harp on bambo], the ondioline & exotic percussion mixed with modal jazz! Recently acquired from a private dealer in Paris, here we have a stunning archive copy from the vaults, complete with original four-page ‘Palm Journal’ press release in French. The front laminated picture sleeve is Near Mint with merely the lightest evidence of natural age wear & the vinyl remains near ‘as new’. Recommended PALM5).
