Lubat / Louiss / Engel Group, France

Lubat / Louiss / Engel Group - Live at Montreux. 1972 Les Disques Pierre Cardin.

Jazz and rock veterans join up for an underground freak session at Montreux, just the kind of happening that was all the rage in 1972. Shame that the jazz purists put this type of radical invention into an early grave, but from about 1969-1974 or so, Pandora's Box was opened for all to see, warts and all. LLE can be classified along with similarly minded collectives such as Association P.C., Wolfgang Dauner's Et Cetera, Fourth Way and Exmagma. This is highly inventive fusion, but not flashy or chops heavy. Not all of it works, but they're going for broke, and sometimes it's fun to hear creativeness being made up as they go along. And who knew that Pierre Cardin was so hip? Sure beats his line of lime green raincoats...
