MICHEL PILZ "CELESTE" (TRION, 1979) & JAMABIKO (M.P., 1983)







(The following text is by Sotise - the rips might be mine or from glmlr)
A couple of wonderful records from Glmlr , including a promised rip of jamabiko.
celeste is much closer in style to Pilz's F.M.P classic Carpathes, an incredibly richly textured and lyrical free -jazz album.
while jamabiko features joyously upbeat more conventionaly swinging song forms peppered both rythmically and melodically with a township flavour.

GLMLR says
"There's not a lot known about Michel Pilz.
He was born in Germany, but has lived all his life in Luxembourg. Still does. He's probably about 70 today. He's a close friend and collaborator of Manfred Schoof. Unlike most players, e.g. tenor sax players who also play the instrument, bass-clarinet is Pilz's main instrument. He rarely plays anything else, though of course he plays sax if needed. He joined Globe Unity in its very early days in the 60's, then along with Schoof he left the band in the late 1970's, and played a lot with Schoof's own quintet (those three Japo albums, if you remember). Since then, he's kept a low profile teaching and working in Luxembourg. But he's still active."
beautiful stuff

I'd somehow missed the Jamabiko discussion. Had no idea Pilz worked w/ Ali. Thanks for passing this along!

Just listened to these this morning. I have to say that glmlr has once again produced a stunning rip from vinyl. Wonderful sound through my Sennheusers.

glmlr said...

Thank you very warmly, 1009. Indeed I keep one or two old granny style recipes here.

I felt a "repeat" post of this was called for because the original vinyl rip posted on C#9 at the beginning of 2007 was only in mp3 @ 192. Back then, that was acceptable, but as we know, times have since changed.

Dear Glmlr,
Thank you so much, from the late 80's I was really looking for what Pilz is doing and this Jamabiko is a great surprise for me.
thanks many times,
volkan

My pleasure, Volkan.

Hi Ernst

Do you eventually have the original rip by GLMLR about "Celeste". The one you actually provided seems to be from a more recent rip but it is in mono. Hope it won't make trouble. Jamabiko looks fantastic.

Ernst Grgo Nebhuth said...

I shall check my collection.
The rip I've posted was already hosted at 1fichier.
Probably I have to make a nw rip will see.
It might take some time, though.
