Mal Waldron - Candy Girl

    PRE ORDER. One of the most elusive yet mythical LP ever released in France is finally reissued or should I say issued by new player in the game, Libreville Records. This album recorded and produced by maverick Producer Pierre Jaubert, was never commercially released and was pressed in a quantity rumoured to be no more than 20 copies. All tracks, composed by legendary Mal Waldron are backed by the key members of the famous Lafayette Afro Rock Band who gained cult status notably by being heavily sampled by the great names of the rap game: from De La Soul to Wu-Tang Clan, through Nas and of course Jay-Z among many, many others... The album consists of five amazing pieces going from deep jazz funk to modal soul jazz even to uplifting jazz ballad, all sharing the profoundness of Mal Waldron's sensibility. Still unknown by many yet essential, Candy Girl stands surely as one of the true Holy Grail of Jazz Funk coming out of Europe.Crafted in true 70s private press spirit, the record comes in a beautiful tip-on cover with pasted DIY paper on front. Fully licensed and carefully remastered from the original master tapes. 2 pressing of this reissue has been released. This close to fac-similé pressing with identical Calumet label is limited to 100 copies. Only 2 copies available. The other pressing with artwork will be issued at 500 copies.
