Luc Marianni (Not in PA database)

Up and Down (1996)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - This Other World - (5'31)
2 - Iron Isle - (5'22)
3 - Human Touch (I. Part One) - (4'59)
4 - Dancing Whales - (7'45)
5 - Grey Clouds - (2'12)
6 - Sea Riders - (3'13)
7 - Human Touch (II. Part Two) - (2'40)
8 - Up And Down - (3'46)

10 - Feel Fear Inside - (6'57)
11 - Final Terminal - (4'00)
12 - Own Up Now - (7'03)



Label info:
After a career oriented towards medias and electro-acoustic experimentations, French keyboards player Luc MARIANNI explores classic Progressive rock with a concept-album inspired by science-fiction. "Up And Down" (1996) displays an intriguing and captivating story, taking place on an off-shore platform. A bit in the way of PINK FLOYD, the music is illustrated with many expressive natural sounds. Instrumental parts alternate with sung ones, with superb lead vocals courtesy of Caroline CROZAT (ANGE, Jean-Pascal BOFFO...). Luc MARIANNI'S SELTAE BEAT also includes guitar-hero Patrick RONDAT (Jean-Michel JARRE, ELEGY...) and bass player Pascal MULOT. Not to be missed !

Neo (Not in PA database)

Neo (1980/1996)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Osibirsk - (6'42)
2 - Scène De Chasse - (7'28)
3 - Joiwind - (3'51)
4 - Néoplasme - (3'06)
5 - Sortie De Bain - (10'36)
6 - Plage II - (2'52)
7 - Jazz N' Roll - (7'14)
8 - Song 4 Miles - (5'19)

Label info:
A long time before the famous movie hit "Matrix", NEO was the name of a French quintet that performed instrumental Progressive rock, and was led by bassist André PAUL and saxophone player Didier ERARD (FRENCH KISS). This line-up issued their unique eponymous album in 1980. Their compositions are based on melodies with occasional breaks, rhythms changes, accelerations, colours as well as changing and sophisticated atmospheres. The themes are very elaborated, complex and not quite straight and easy. The instrumental dialogues are numerous: a rageous or cutting edge guitar answers to inventive keyboards or to a whirling saxophone line. The band can successively remind of Bo HANSSON, CAMEL (Mel COLLINS's period) or CARAVAN, and sometimes KING CRIMSON ("Islands" days). An absolute rarity, to be rediscovered without delay !

Didier Lockwood / Volkor (Not in PA database)

Volkor (1976/1996)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - To-Morrow - (2'06)
2 - Astral Trip - (5'30)
3 - Elbow - (6'57)
4 - What's The Matter - (2'15)
5 - Volkor - (6'09)
6 - Yellow Faces - (3'36)
7 - Green - (3'50)
8 - Naïta - (4'22)
9 - Debbi - (4'54)
10 - Sabrina De Souza - (2'38)
11 - Don't Forget Him - (4'17)
12 - Question On You - (4'43)
13 - Strange Moon - (5'50)
14 - A Quiet Sun - (5'16)
15 - Good Luck (I. Part One) - (4'05)
16 - Good Luck (II. Part Two) - (1'38)



Label info:
VOLKOR was quite unnoticed when it was in action, and yet, it had all it takes to become a definite reference of jazz-rock fusion: a rhythm section solid as a rock, educated in the US school and composed of bass player Bunny BRUNEL (Future star of the genre) and American drummer Kirt RUST, as well as a superb keyboardist (Patrick GAUTHIER), an unusual line-up with electric violin but without guitars, a unique inspiration, and pure talent... As well as two French musicians that later became some of the best: Didier LOCKWOOD and his brother Francis ! Respectively renowned violinist and pianist, the two brothers perform for us a truly fascinating music, sometimes close to Progressive rock. This line-up recorded their unique album in 1976 and gave it the well chosen title "Jazz Rock". A pure wonder that suffered from the fact that those five musicians only became famous (And rightly) after it was issued... Thanks to Musea, the reissue changes title and includes a worthwhile bonus: Francis LOCKWOOD's complete first solo album "Debbi" (1981) ! This album shows the considerable evolution suffered by the genre in just about five years: gone are the references to THE MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA or BRAND X, they are going more in the direction of WEATHER REPORT or SPYRO GYRA. The impressive guest list of course starts with Didier LOCKWOOD himself. Together, those two albums illustrate a very interesting period of a particular French jazz-rock fusion school. Here is an indispensable masterpiece !

DeBoCo (Not in PA database)

Deboco (1997)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - D95 - (6'34)
2 - Le Retour De Dark Fader - (5'19)
3 - Trapézistes - (5'19)
4 - Shakti - (5'27)
5 - Procession - (5'27)
6 - Zéro Chrono - (2'32)
7 - Araignée - (4'47)
8 - Allô Wind - (6'13)
9 - Sole Clipping - (4'34)

Label info:
Named after a pun, "DeBoCo" (1997) is the work of three unique modern French Progressive rock musicians: Eric DELAUNAY, Jean-Pascal BOFFO & Gilles COPPIN. Actually, this was the latter's last recording, because he unfortunately passed away in July 1996. His work on this project was completed by his once colleague in TIEMKO, guitarist Rémy CHAUVIDAN. With strong individual talents, diverse styles and creativity without boundaries, each of the three artists present here composed and performed one track of this album. After that, the other two musicians were invited to create their own version of it. At the end of the day, the listener gets nine tracks and more than forty-five minutes of music. It's absolutely not some purely didactic and dry experiment: the music is self-sufficient and the album can be heard in one go. Humour is not absent: the "Star Wars" nostalgic will be pleased to listen to "Le Retour De Dark Fader" ("The Return Of Dark Fader"), thanks to the tongue-in-cheek guitar performed by Jean-Pascal BOFFO. Some will notice straight away the strange spelling in "Allô Wind". Also, it can be said that "Araignée", composed by Gilles COPPIN and sung by Géraldine Le COCQ was revisited on the excellent album by HALLOWEEN "Le Festin" (2001). It's logical, given that the two artists mentioned above are members of this band from Brittany ! An unique experience for a unique result !

Note:
This album is commonly listed under the DeBoCo moniker, as that is the name attached to the CD.
The record label credits it to Eric DELAUNAY, Jean-Pascal BOFFO & Gilles COPPIN
On iTunes it's marked as an artistic collaboration between Eric DELAUNAY and Jean-Pascal BOFFO
But musically, the main man on this production would appear to be the late keyboardist Coppin.

Benoit Widemann (Not in PA database)

Stress! (1977/1997)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Balèze - (3'25)
2 - Herbes Sol - (6'50)
3 - Stress ! - (1'56)
4 - Le Camp Du Drap D'Or - (4'03)
5 - Demi-Final - (1'22)
6 - Quaternaire - (5'53)
7 - Spirale - (4'32)
8 - Fête Au Septième Plan - Sacrifice - (5'04)
9 - Final (I. Part One) - (2'44)
10 - Final (II. Part Two) - (2'18)

Label info:
After having taken part in CHUTE LIBRE (Jazz-rock band led by Mino CINELU), Benoît WIDEMANN has been involved in MAGMA as its keyboards player from 1975 to 1978, noticeably recording the great "Hhaï Live". "Stress !" (1977) is the name of his first solo album: the music is obviously dominated by keyboards, their sonorities and colours. Using a large sample of them (Synthesisers, Mini-Moog, Fender Rhodes, string section, clavinet, etc.), he performs dreamy, picturesque, impressionist compositions full of sensibility and elegance. They call for nostalgic, happy and very visual climates sounding like soundtracks and sometimes evoking François BREANT's works. For the occasion, he hired some of the best French musicians from the Progressive jazz-rock and Zeuhl music scenes: Guy DELACROIX (MAGMA), Clément BAILLY (MAGMA, NEMO and TRYPTIQUE), Patrice TISON (KAPAK), Patrick GAUTHIER (WEIDORJE, VOLKOR, HELDON...), Jean-Pierre FOUQUEY (MAGMA)... This album displays a series of emotional snapshots or picturesque and imaginary trips.

Tsunami (1979/1998)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Des Iles - (7'39)

Label info:
On "Tsunami" (1979), Benoît WIDEMANN is at the head of a real group and performs a suggestive, impressionistic and dreamy music with some complex parts and rhythms (Powered by André CECCARELLI's brother Jean-Paul, drummer as well !). His picturesque and colourful style could evoke a more European WEATHER REPORT. To be rediscovered !

Makoto Kitayama (Not in PA database)

Hikaru Sazanami (1998)
Imprint: Musea

Track list:
1 - Budokan - (10'10)
2 - Blue - (7'42)
3 - Heels Of Boots - (2'57)
4 - Weekends - (3'14)
5 - Akane Sasu - (4'27)
6 - Heart Of Stone - (4'39)
7 - Hikaru Sazanami - (9'05)

Label info:
SHINGETSU was, no doubt about it, the Seventies Japanese band of the late Seventies. Makoto KITAYAMA, their former singer, recorded "Hiraku Sazanami" in 1998, exploiting older compositions. He performs an intelligent and refined symphonic rock that shows, among others, the influence they got from KING CRIMSON, due to the fact that it includes majestuous and beautiful Mellotron parts. The sharp and Robert FRIPP-like guitar solos as well as the impressionist and suggestive neo-classic can sometimes evoke Jean-Philippe GOUDE's works.

Practical Encyclopedia Of Kingdom Plantae (2008)
Imprint: Dreaming

Track list:
1 - Erythroxylon Coca - (2'09)
2 - Acer Saccharum - (2'33)
3 - Piper Nigrum - (4'26)
4 - Lilium Speciosum - (3'19)
5 - Quercus Suber - (5'23)
6 - Circuta Virosa - (4'00)
7 - Metroxylon Sagu - (4'21)
8 - Akebia Quinata - (2'28)
9 - Freesia - (5'08)



Label info:
Makoto KITAYAMA is known as the singer-songwriter of the Japanese Progressive rock legend SHINGETSU. After having released only one official album at the end of the Seventies, the group disbanded, and its leader recorded "Doubutsukai No Chinou" (1981) and "Hikaru Sazanami" (1998). The second one can be traced in the grand Progressive rock tradition, whereas the first one is an all-instrumental album featuring Makoto KITAYAMA overdubbing various keyboards parts. Jointly released by the Musea and Poseidon labels, "Practical Encyclopedia Of Kingdom Plantae" (2008) also belongs to that musical style. He's helped here by Takashi HAYASHI, the leader and guitarist of QUI. It's now up to you to slip into Makoto KITAYAMA's sonic universe...

One can also notice the friendly appearance by former ABUS DANGEREUX guitar player PierreJean GAUCHER. Not to be missed !

Label info:
S & L is a current Italian Progressive rock group, called after the initials of its two musicians' first names. These two goldsmiths are a keyboardist devoted to the big names of Progressive rock music (Salvio SCHIANO), as well as an extremely melodic guitarist (Lino ESPOSITO). "Eternal", the first instrumental album, was released in 2001 under the Musea label. It provides a music which is at the crossway between Seventies Progressive rock Italian people are so fond of, the guitar-hero style which is dear to Joe SATRIANI, a touch of neo Progressive sound and a little bit of symphonic heavy-metal. SAGA and DREAM THEATER are two other references often mentioned...

Label info:
Three years later, S & L is back with "Time Machine" (2004), a second album both more personal and more professional. The feeling we have now that this is a real group is even strenghthened by the participation of lots of guest-musicians. Three tracks also involve singing, one of which is the suite "A Different Man". Embark for a fascinating trip in the windings of the current Progressive heavy-metal sound !

Label info:
To be situated between GILGAMESH, KING CRIMSON and PRIAM, three inspired Japanese musicians have decided to fusion Pat METHENY's intimate jazz-rock with the sophistication of the best modern Progressive rock. It is not a play-on-word to say that PRIORITY should be heard above all ! Recorded in 2001, "Light Is Decomposed Into Fragments" should be included in each Japanese discography that wants to show off, even if we're here closer to KEHELL than to GERARD and OUTER LIMITS. This charming music leaves out any impression that it is dificult, even if a research and a certain sophistication are always present. The only expression "Follow The Yellow Big Road" (Do you remember the musical "The Wizard Of Oz" ?), often repeated on top of the jazzy and entertaining "Yellow" breaks the musical predominence. Guitarist Takumi SEINO (SIX NORTH) is probably the Japanese Jean-Pascal BOFFO !
