Rush Hour Store : Chodo ::: RECORD OF THE WEEK
2017 May 18th :
“Chodo” is a renowned masterpiece by the extraordinarily gifted musician Georges-Edouard Nouel (hailing from Martinique), who was mostly active on the piano/keys in the abundant French West Indies jazz scene of the 70s and 80s.
Besides being affiliated with Max Cilla and others as a session musician, he was also a member of Noel Mc Ghie & Space Spies (whose self-titled album was reissued by the dope Parisian Superfly imprint).
On this album, Nouel practices his skilful play on the Fender Rhodes, bringing lovely virtuos velvety melodies.
A well executed reissue of this ultra rare album is now finally available to a wider audience. This will appeal to fans of, for example, the Kouté Jazz compilation on Heavenly Sweetness, don’t sleep!
