Hommage à Jef Gilson - Compact Disc (CD)

Over a career spanning half a century, Jef Gilson managed to occupy more or less every post in music, both possible and unimaginable. His name was up there on the French posters of the 60s and 70s, alongside the likes of John Coltrane, Oscar Peterson, Sun Ra or Ray Charles. He recorded the new wave (Byard Lancaster, Archie Shepp, David S. Ware...) in his studio and played jazz in all its guises, from the most traditional to the most abstract.

And yet everybody, or almost everybody, seems to have forgotten: Jef Gilson is the great absentee from the history books.

Palm Unit plays Gilson’s repertoire without any a priori, in a totally complex-free way, reinventing it whilst preserving its original essence. The keyboards sound almost psychedelic (and often not that far from the style of Eddy Louiss on Jef Gilson’s 60’s albums), the sax scratches, mews and wails, whilst the drums make the whole thing swing. Even Palm Unit’s special guest Del Rabenja, who plays the valiha (a small harp from Madagascar) and who was in Jef Gilson’s band in the 70s, featuring on several essential albums bearing the Palm imprint, was surprised to rediscover the songs still sounding so modern, decades after they were created.

Super-Sonic Jazz Records

Named after the Sun Ra's acclaimed record from 1956, Super-Sonic Jazz is the label and event series run by Dutchman Kees Heus, a.k.a. KC The Funkaholic and brothers Tenzers. Having already established Super-Sonic Jazz as one the leading nights for jazz and more at Amsterdam club Paradiso, it was inevitable they would take the next step, in releasing music to share with the community.
