GILSON, JEF - THE BEST OF JEF GILSON (2LP)


"A lifetime in jazz from the illustrious French musician, producer, composer, arranger, band leader, sound engineer, music teacher, label-owner, and multi-instrumentalist par excellence! It's always an honour for us to re-release cool & obscure records, but as honours go they surely come no greater than bringing you music from one of the most brilliant and productive jazzmen ever to have lived: French pianist, composer and arranger extraordinaire Jef Gilson. With his career spanning the best part of a century, Gilson has made music with a who's who of European and American jazz greats, has written, performed on and recorded innumerable film scores, albums and 45s, ran the Palm jazz record label. yet despite all this the French jazzman remains criminally under appreciated by so many jazz fans. Look him up on the internet - there isn't even a Wikipedia entry! We address this unfortunate situation by releasing 19 songs spanning decades of his recording career." (label info)
