Patrice Gelsi - Ailleurs... (Private - France - 1983)
€490.00 / Sold Out
French latin jazz fusion best kept secret ! Ultra rare single album by pianist Patrice Gelsi featuring some great musicians : Réjane Perrimond, one of the leading voices of Starmania, the brazilian percussionist Sergio Otanazetra, bassist Christophe Levan from Jazz à Marseille beyond others. The whole album is a brilliant mix of modal jazz, jazz-funk, latin grooves sprinkled by a bit of fusion. "On Chant d'Ailleurs" the superb female vocal solo is just amazing, this tune is instantly reminds Cortex Troupeau Bleu ! The Brazilian influenced jazz-funk "Utopie" & "Duchesses (+)" are my favorites on this masterpiece but actually I can't decide which track is the best as the play of Gelsi has something magic on every track he composed. "Quelque part ... Autre part" is also one of my favorite.
