Kat-tet - Women

    This confidential private album is one of the best discovery I have heard lately. Recorded in the early 80's by a bunch of brilliant musicians from Guadeloupe, Patrick Jean-Marie on piano & Toto Jean-Marie on bass (both brothers of Alain Jean-Marie) Christian Mathurin & Charly Chomereau-Lamothe on percussions, Erick Danquin on drums, and Francois Luther on sax. You have everything you expect on this beautiful album with powerful and deep tunes like the uptempo "Nikita" with amazing flute & virtuoso piano solo, Swing hibiscus a subtle groovy modal tune while Hommage sounds like a spiritual dedication to Coltrane. Sky 2000 & Solange are also brilliant tunes. Never properly distributed in France this under the radar lp is extremely hard to find. For fans of Michel Sardaby, G.E Nouel, Synchro, Fabiano Orchestra, Marius Cultier, Roland Brival ... Record is NM (looks unplayed) cover is EX with only slight signs of wear on the spine and light creases. Don't sleep on this rarity as it never shows up on the web.
