Gilson, Jef – “Gilson Et Malagasy” – [Jazzman]


This is a most wonderful holiday add. Jazz pianist, composer, arranger, leader extraordinaire Jef Gilson made many a trip in the late 60s to Madagascar to soak in the culture and music. These four CDs represent many of the collaborations and concerts Gilson performed with Malagasy musicians. The sound has elements of big band and I love it. It’s like the jazz I grew up with, but with a Malagasy twist. Read the liner notes to learn how Gilson encouraged the musicians to create their own brand of jazz–MadaJazzcar. Flute, harp, horns, strings, percussion. It’s all fabulous.
