Many features, including Le Match and Leandro Bianchi & RASA

Decided to dig into the new arrivals from the Community Record Show, finally, starting with some tracks from Quebec Prog band Le Match (deep apologies - Turntable One was malfunctioning, and only the left channel could be heard...), then a handful of other things from the (relaively) old to the (relatively) new. Finishing out with Spanish-gypsy world-fusion, RASA!
Starting with the one-and-only release from Quebec Prog Le Match - Gentle Giant-meets-French Folk, it's a shame that Turntable one seems to have a flaky left channel. Apologies to both Listener and Band.

On to a general-miscellaneous Early-70's Prog Set while I try to fix Turntable One.
Soumis - Octobre Au Mois De Mai
Ville Emard Blues Band - Minute! VEBB S'en vient! - 1973 Canadian
Bustin' Out Tonight
Christmas - Heritage - 1970 Canadian
Dillinger - S/T - 1974 Canadian
Malo - S/T - 1972
Finishing with the best track from Malo, a Mexican Rock band featuring Carlos Santana's brother on guitar. Much more emphasis on the Hispanic sound than Santana. Turntable One is still suffering. Continuing on with a latter-day LP from Ozric Tentacles. Much more reliance on electronica and sequencing on this. I'm playing the more 'real-instrument-tracks' for you!

Time to continue one with Norwegian keys/bass/drums trio Elephant 9 and their 2010 LP, 'Walk the Nile'.

Time to get to a little 'terrifying jazz energy' from Last Exit, and their live 1986 LP. Peter Brötzmann (saxophone), Bill Laswell (bass), Sonny Sharrock (guitar), Ronald Shannon Jackson (drums). Need I say more?

Taking the frantic improv energy down a touch to make way for the final feature though a couple of older Chant Records releases...
Fish Out Of Water
John Lee - Chu Babaloo - 2018
These are The Oldest Things
Sandcatchers - What We Found Along the Way - 2018
Finishing up with a final feature on a 'new' LP from Spain's RASA. We had played things from their previous live LP from the quartet, but throughout these past years "...Leandro has cultivated and collected ideas to shape his new work in sextet Legados, a true world fusion adding to his music rhythms of flamenco and African sounds of profound trance, experiencing as well as the word RASA in its origin makes reference: the specific flavor of each moment.
