Merci Frederic, tout ca a l'air bien bon!
Apparently there's a problem with Stuff's link (no file?).
I'm downloading Jan Huydts. All that on a FRiday nite! My wife will complain again if I spend the week end listening to music!

great post. Thank you very much, Frederic and Bacoso

Quimsy said...

Great - been wanting this Stuff LP for donkeys years!. Is there a reason it's ripped to mono? Anyways, many thx Bacoso as always.

Nico said...

Thanks a lot for this stuff Bacoso. Miralles has been for a long time the pianist and arranger of a great Catalan Singer, the great Joan Manuel Serrat. Great to see him here in his jazz role. According to Wiki he also plays vibraphone and trumpet.

Jonne said...

Five alive !?!

Time to break-out the Ferrero Rochers. "Zee jazz ambassador is surely spoiling us"....

Many thanks guys


boogieman said...

Question to Frederic: there is a guitar player on the Stuff Combe album. He's not credited apparently.
Could it be Pierre Cavalli? The same rhythm section(Jaquillard / Combe) was used on the Cavalli / Norma Green LP.



Leffe said...

What a wonderful world this is! Fanfuckingtastic to say the least! Thank you Bacoso, and Mr Hartman too!

Bender said...

ouaip, il rigole pas le cousin. Découvrir 5 bombes d'un coup c'est pas tous les jours... la rentrée radiophonique va être sympa.
Et many thanks to Bacoso pour l'ensemble de son oeuvre, indeed.

Maciko said...

cannonball said...

petit paradis said...

Many Thanks for the many thanks!
@bacoso: Cheers for reupping the Combe LP. Still don't know what happened there.
@quimsy: No clue whatsoever why it is ripped in mono. Thought I Had proceded just the same way I did with the others but I guess I must have hit an erroneous button at some point. As soon as I find the time to do so I'll rip it again in stereo (and get rid of the few pops and the beginning of A1.) This won't be before October though.
@boogieman: I checked the LP again and tried to find out about that ghost guitarist on the web. No luck though. I'll continue to investigate and will let you know asap.
Kind Regards,

Quimsy said...

Frederic, please don't go to any trouble on my account but a kind offer.
If I can make an observation, all these rips are in mono. Should be easy enough to fix, check your physical connections and your recording software.

sunbop said...

amazing list of rarities

balkanjeff said...

Always wanted to hear more of what Francy Boland did after the Clarke-Boland Big Band - so thanks a lot to Frederic and Bacoso

boogieman said...

Hey guys (and gals if there's any?),
my way of saying Thanks to Bacoso and Frederic. I've posted a very rare French 10" by Jacques Denjean & son Grand Orchestre de Jazz (1962). Superb music with great soli by the likes of Ivan Jullien, J-L Chautemps, Gerard Badini and others. Get it while you can!
