Essential French Spirit/Avant Jazz from Legendary French Pianist Jef Gilson, Originally Released in 1964!
Modern Silence presents a reissue of Oeil Vision, originally released in 1964. One of the best albums by legendary French pianist Jef Gilson, recorded in 1963 with Jean-Luc Ponty on violin, Daniel Humair on drums, Jean-Louis Chautemps and Pierre Caron on tenor sax, and Guy Pedersen & Henri Texier on bass. A superb line up for this beautiful album including two splendid versions of "Chant-Inca" (a hidden cover of Pharoah Sanders "Creator Has A Masterplan"). Essential French spirit/avant jazz. Gilson was the brilliant mind behind a number of incredible, yet over-looked recordings during the late-60s and early-70s. His music spanned from big band and large led ensemble work to his later explorations with African influenced spiritual jazz. Pressed on 180g vinyl.
