Jef Gilson EP

Jazzman

Released: 16th May 2011 | 4 track avant garde jazz ep
It's always an honour for us to re-release cool & obscure records, but as honours go they surely come no greater than bringing you music from one of the most brilliant and productive jazzmen ever to have lived: French pianist, composer and arranger extraordinaire Jef Gilson. With his career spanning the best part of a century, Gilson has made music with a who's who of European and American jazz greats, has written, performed on and recorded innumerable film scores, albums and 45s, ran the Palm Jazz record label.. yet despite all this the 84 year old Frenchman remains criminally under appreciated by so many jazz fans. Look him up on the internet - there isn't even a Wikipedia entry! We address this unfortunate situation by releasing 19 songs spanning decades of his recording career in our forthcoming album JMANCD/LP042 'Jef Gilson'. But for now, here is a sumptuous taster in the form of a LTD EDN 4 track 7 EP featuring two of his finest creations, the awesome 'Chakan' and 'Modalite Pour Mimi'. As a bonus the flipside has two more tracks NOT to be found on the album.
