I know that this is a very old thread/post, but I though I would translate this for you :).

"Jospeh

I'm sending you two discs like I promised, (I'm putting two , just in case you would know somebody that would be interested in this). We'll be recording once again in March-April. (Stella has nicely proposed to sing for the disc).
There. See you later, maybe.

Thanks man, I appreciate it a lot. (and thanks to Avestin who had translated this before for me). I appreciate this a helluva lot. France is/was next door to me so why is the language so impossible for me?!? And why is learning Japanese much easier? Much, much easier. ウイ~

Here is a little information on the album on the list of Zeuhl bands. Translated so, excuse the poor english.



Jacques Thollot


      “Five Hops”, album left into 78.

Jacques Thollot is one of the French beaters too ignored with my direction, and which it is urgent to discover to appreciate his work with his right value. Early beater in the German Saint of Paris which will give its letters of nobility to a be-bop in full effervescence.

Thollot learns the writing and the harmony with Jean Baraqué (contemporary type-setter missing in the Seventies), from there, its compositions will have this single color between jazz, contemporary writing and the French school. “Five hops” is all that at the same time, and perhaps its album more led in this direction. The voice soprano of Elects Ross gives to the unit a single charm between classicism and modernity. To also note the humorous and enigmatic side titles: “On 12 notes, roughly”, “Three years in front of, three years beyond, ouf, one year already”. The pieces make the beautiful share with asymmetrical measurements with titles like: ” Furnace furnace five eight ", “Over 9 times”, etc…

     I was likely to meet Jacques Thollot and of the interviewer for Batteur Magazine, unfortunately, the article is never been published fault of topicality due to a long crossing of the desert of the artist. I nevertheless discovered somebody interested by the instruments electronic and curious to integrate these sounds into his music. However, I think one of these days of retranscribing this interview here.

On this album, Jacques Thollot is accompanied by François Jeanneau, François Couturier, Michel Graillier and Jean-Paul Céléa.

    A last thing, if somebody includes/understands the photograph on the small pocket, that it does not hesitate has poster a message….it is the return of the schmilblick; -)

---------------------------------------------------


A original LP copy of "quand le son devient aigu," Just went on Ebay for around $62 US so it is not overly expensive. If people are interested, you can buy the album remastered in CD formate from Musea for 21 euro.

musea.musearecords.com/ext_re_new_catselect.php?np=2451

Here is the little excert:

The reissue, on its original label Futura, from a mythical and very rare record from the early Seventies French scene. Jacques THOLLOT, a drummer, breaks the style frontiers between jazz and rock, a bit in the same way as Robert WYATT on "The End Of An Ear", and proposes a surprising collage full of creativity.


For me personally this is well worth the money, the whole album is composed by Thollot, and does focus intently on drums and piano. Mostly tight-ish composition while still keeping than nice avant-garde sound.




Thollot's just fantastic both as composer and performer! Jazz I'd reccomend to all fans of Zeuhl an RIO. All the five albums I got by him are worth checking out. Extremely eclectic mix or lieders, smooth jazz and ballads to atonal avantgarde and jazzrock + poppy stuff, electronic beeps etc. And it all makes sense. I'd start with Watch Devil Go or Cinq Hops. But really; grab all albums you can find!

Got it at Disc Union in Kichijoji. Went there again today and scored Second Hands' 'Death May Be Your Santa Claus' on vinyl for 700 yen (peanuts). Definately a bootleg copy tho'.  I got to know this masterpiece through Rocktopus. Kisses to Rocktopus.


(Blush) Gotta be the best record shop in the world!

I haven't visited here in an long while, but I did arrange a Magma-night (look below Mr. Wyatt) celebrating Chistian Vander's 60'th bitrhday last week. You'd all wish you were there!

What about Musique Noise? I think the voting here is just unfair? What do you think?

You have absolutely no idea how much I can't wait for it. I am creaming my pants at the thought. Literally.
