Jaune et Encore 1979

Another shockingly good french album of jazz-rock, almost as masterful as the earlier Patrice Meyer. The originality of the composition is breathtaking, as well as the high dynamic. The only fault here is the unevenness, sometimes the artist gets caught up in unnecessary pyrotechnics or allows a song to drift for a bit. Otherwise the playing is extraordinary. How did these guys come up with so much originality, creativity, passion, fierceness of invention, back then in the seventies? My jaw drops as I hear this, there are more musical ideas here than in an average semester at any music conservatory. Where has all that gone now? And how many gems like this are there still out there? I wouldn't know, ask the man who has everything. He's not likely to share much with you if you know me, of course. He quite hates me now, you understand, you'll see his comments posted anon under anonymous. (It's not enough to have everything, no one else can have anything.) I'm OK with that, and plus, my wife would really like me to give up this "weird little obsession" with collecting progressive music, as she calls it.

Credit for the rip will appear anonymously, btw. Please enjoy this album anyways despite all the drama.

....clamorous work like Human and P. Meyer! Unexplainable cerebral atmospheres in the best french manner. Evergreen!

Thanks again
