Here's a little Gem ,of a curio from Pierre an old Blogging buddy.
Its a fascinating demonstration record of sorts , of the possibilities of prepared piano ,as played by Tusques , some of it is a little on the light cheesy side, the first track seems to be a pastiche of a couple of different pieces by Granados.
..And it certainly bears little resemblance to his work of 10, years earlier with such Stalwarts of the nascent French free jazz scene as Barney Wilen , Beb Guerin, Bernard Vitet, Michel Portal and Francois jeanneau, - or later as virtually the house pianist for BYG...
His classic early records',' Free Jazz' -1965, Intercommunal Music'1971, and 'Le Nouveaux Jazz' mouloudji -1967 are all still up for perusal at 'inconstant sol'
It is none the less an enjoyable listen, texturally varied rather beautiful , and not with out distinctively 'free' passages, something for collectors to cherish since its long out of print and quite rare.
this is a superb rip , and the stitched cover scans are IMPEC!
