JEAN LOUIS Jean Louis

Album · 2008 · Eclectic Fusion

Having originated from France in the wake of the Zeuhl, RIO and Avant-Garde luminaries of the 70s and 80s, Jean Louis' spectacularly impressive brand of avant-jazz should hardly come as a surprise to anybody. Only a three-piece, Jean Louis still manages to sound large, loud and grand. Due to the plethora of effects added to their instruments, one can hardly tell much of the time whether what we hear originates from Joachim Florent's upright bass or from Aymeric Avice's trumpet. Practically every moment of this album, possibly one of the best debuts in decades, is fresh, fascinating, and very technically impressive. No doubt destined to become one of modern jazz's greats, Jean Louis never ceases to amaze me, no matter how many times I hear this album.

CHARLES MINGUS The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady

Album · 1963 · Progressive Big Band
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
A curious case of spaghetti-western avant- post- be-bop, Charles Mingus' The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady offers the listener some insight into the troubled mind of a genius. At the helm of an eleven piece band, Mingus' compositional skills come alive. The most beautiful themes on the album find themselves repeated only a perfect number of times, and the powerful baritone saxophone and contrabass trombone drive the music throughout.

An absolutely essential jazz masterpiece, The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is without a doubt among the greatest works ever made by anybody. Highly recommended to anybody with the slightest inclination to open-mindedness.
