MICHEL KLOTCHKOFF TRIO + CHRIS WOODS - FULL SPACE




















Michel Klotchoff Trio & Chris Woods for Promophone France from 1976.

Michel Klotchkof - Piano,Keyboards ; Henri Boiron - Bass ; Bernard Malabre - Drums ; Jean-Pierre Lochesse - Bongos ; Chris Woods - Alto Sax;Flute.

Superb rare French modal/bop album from sometime Francois DeRoubaix collaborator Klotchkoff and his trio joined by Chris Woods and Lochesse's bongos. "Full Space" sets the scene a modal swinger with Woods tearing it up over clattering bongos and the trio in full flight - a jazz dancers delight!
'Francois, Gone But Remembered' is deep modality in memory of Francois De Roubaix who drowned in 1975 shortly before the session was recorded .Klotchkoff dedicated "Chris Cross" to Woods with whom the trio became friends after performing as his rhythm section in Paris (along with Marco Di Marco). "Waltz for Benjy" is more modal business in waltz time followed by the head noddin' boppin' "18 Rue De La Passarelle". Luis Eca's "The Dolphin" rounds off the album and was recorded live and is something of a showcase for Klotchkoff featured on piano, cello, glockenspiel and synthesizer.
