LUBAT, LOUISS, ENGEL GROUP-LIVE AT MONTREAUX 72, FRANCE, 1972




A short lived but shit-hot jazz rock unit, this trio have quite the auspicious pedigree. Drummer Bernard Lubat's been a longtime fixture on the French jazz scene, whose tangential ties to the zeuhl school (manifest here via early Magma guitarist Claude Engel's involvement) are also evidenced on both the Laurent Petitgirard and Henri Gougaud LP's that I've posted on MS previously. Former Omega Plus acid rock vet Engel was a founding member of Magma and is prominently featured on both their first album and their amazing Univeria Zekt project and would go on to play in Troc and participate in Jean-Claude Vannier's L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches, while keyboardist Eddy Louiss was a an old hand in the jazz world, working as a former sideman to Stan Getz and Kenny Clarke, though perhaps most significantly in the Humair/Louiss/Ponty trio. The magic engendered by these three is palpable; the scope of this live session ranging from the furiously charged to the vaporously abstract. Not to be missed.

Mint post. (Mint in my neighborhood means excellent.)

Totally unrelated: have y'all ever or would you be able to post stuff by the Italian band Rivolta Dell'Odio? I fell in love with the LP, but haven't been able to track down the comp tracks or the 7".
